13:50 Cartmel

PRIME TIME LADY will be tough to beat if anywhere near her best, especially given her comfortable victory over this course and distance last month. She previously won by 13 lengths at Warwick over 2m, so has to be respected once more. Hophornbeam made a winning start for Gordon Elliott earlier this month and may not be far away, while improvement should not be ruled out for Toughasoldboots down in trip.
Prediction : 1st Prime Time Lady 2nd Hophornbeam 3rd Toughasoldboots

BROOMFIELD BURG has performed creditably in Grade 3 contests at Cheltenham and Aintree the last twice. He looks nicely treated at present and, dropped in class, could make a return to the winner's enclosure. Hurricane Ali has gone up 4lb following his latest win, which might be too steep given he only won by three-quarters of a length, while Bashful Boy seeks to make an impression up in class in first-time blinkers.
Prediction : 1st Broomfield Burg 2nd Hurricane Ali 3rd Bashful Boy

OSCAR MONTEL gets the vote having struck at Worcester over 2m7f, keeping on strongly to suggest that this longer trip will pose no problems. He has gone up 4lb for that win, which seems fair, and merits close consideration. Super Citizen must be feared having run on well in third at Limerick over a similar distance, while Dee Star could also be thereabouts.
Prediction : 1st Oscar Montel 2nd Super Citizen 3rd Dee Star

15:20 Cartmel

The gutsy Going Mobile narrowly held on from FOURTH OF JULY at Hexham earlier this month but the latter deserves extra credit considering his saddle had slipped, and he now looks equipped to cash in off a favourable mark. Brelan D'As bounced back to form with a game placed effort over further here last month and is clearly well treated right now, even if the drop back in trip may not be ideal.
Prediction : 1st Fourth Of July 2nd Brelan DAs 3rd Going Mobile

15:55 Cartmel

The remarkable Dressedforsuccess made it five successive wins at this track when narrowly getting up last month and he holds obvious claims once again after just a 2lb rise. For all that, this is a much deeper race and SEDDON might just have too much after an unlucky defeat over C&D last time, when becoming unbalanced late on after bumping the rail. Dr Sanderson looks worth a tilt over this longer trip and is well treated.
Prediction : 1st Seddon 2nd Dressedforsuccess 3rd Dr Sanderson

16:30 Cartmel

Liffeydale Dreamer has a good record here, with three wins from six starts, and she seems likely to go well, but preference is for JELSKI, who won by 25 lengths over C&D last time despite being eased down before the line. Even 11lb more from the handicapper may not stop him, leaving Irish raider Bellaney Gem as an interesting alternative stepping back up in trip off a 3lb lower mark than last time.
Prediction : 1st Jelski 2nd Liffeydale Dreamer 3rd Bellaney Gem

17:00 Cartmel

Catchmeifyoucan is the only C&D winner in the line-up, but she didn't look at her best when last of five at Stratford and needs to bounce back if she wants to mount a challenge. TWILIGHT GIRL is a game sort who got back up to win over fences at Limerick in May and, currently 5lb lower over hurdles than her chase mark, she could prove hard to beat. Liloo D'ores and Light Heidi look best of the rest.
Prediction : 1st Twilight Girl 2nd Catchmeifyoucan 3rd Liloo Dores
