Top-weight JUST HISS has been in solid form of late and gets the nod. Tim Easterby's veteran remains well-handicapped on old form despite his productive recent spell and can get the better of See The Sea, who wasn't disgraced at Leicester when returning to the level. Thermal also warrants respect having made a winning start for Kevin Frost at Southwell last time.
Prediction : 1st Just Hiss 2nd See The Sea 3rd Thermal

MARTINI NIGHTS makes plenty of appeal on her racecourse debut having cost 140,000gns at Tattersalls Book 1 sales and she boasts a nice pedigree, being related to several Pattern-class performers. One Of Our Own has hit the frame twice in three outings and arguably sets the form standard, while others worthy of consideration include Lahaayeb, whose dam placed at Listed level, and In These Shoes.
Prediction : 1st Martini Nights 2nd One Of Our Own 3rd Lahaayeb

MONSIEUR KODI has taken a step forward recently, as showcased by his latest success at Ayr last month, and, despite a 7lb rise from the handicapper, Richard Fahey's gelding appears likely to have the scope to progress again. Golden Duke is a reliable performer who has finished in the first two on his last five starts. The application of cheekpieces could yield further improvement, while May Blossom and Emeralds Pride complete the shortlist.
Prediction : 1st Monsieur Kodi 2nd Golden Duke 3rd May Blossom

WATER OF LEITH has returned to form in style over the past month, winning three of his last four starts, and he could prove to be tough to beat under a double penalty. Ventura Flame has filled the runner-up spot on her last couple of outings and commands plenty of respect along with Sacred Jewel, who is worth another chance having clearly not run up to standard at Musselburgh in June.
Prediction : 1st Water Of Leith 2nd Ventura Flame 3rd Sacred Jewel

Carnival Zain is in the form of his life at the moment and can't be ruled out, but he might be vulnerable after being raised 7lb for his last win, so preference is for the ultra-consistent UNDER FOX to return to winning ways. Tim Easterby's four-year-old was a good second at Hamilton last time and might appreciate this slightly shorter trip, so he looks the one to side with off just 1lb higher. Detective has finished second on his last two starts and looks best of the rest.
Prediction : 1st Under Fox 2nd Carnival Zain 3rd Detective

A desperately tricky puzzle to solve, but it might be worth siding with Amanda Perrett's runner HOLLIS BROWN to get off the mark here. He finished second at Ayr on Thursday on just his second run for the yard, so with the likelihood of more to come, he looks the one to be with. Bastille was a good third at Newcastle last week and looks set to go close again off the same mark, while Western Melody is worth a second look on his first run after a break.
Prediction : 1st Hollis Brown 2nd Bastille 3rd Western Melody

20:35 Carlisle

HELM PRINCESS might not have appreciated the surface at Chelmsford last time out and, back on turf here, she is fancied to get off the mark on her handicap debut off with P J Mcdonald in the plate for the first time. Yeeeaah has had plenty of chances but looks sure to go well in a race of this nature after a respectable third at Ayr last time, while Regal World is another who could give this a good go in the first-time cheekpieces.
Prediction : 1st Helm Princess 2nd Yeeeaah 3rd Regal World
