The selection is THREE DONS, who returned from a 137-day break with a strong effort from the front at Leicester last month. Runner-up on his penultimate outing over C&D, Tony Carroll's charge is preferred to the likes of Ravi Road, who has been knocking on the door since joining new connections, and Smarden Flyer, who ran a career best here in May. Others to note include Cable Mountain, Hold The Press and My Bonnie Lassie.
Prediction : 1st Three Dons 2nd Ravi Road 3rd Smarden Flyer

An eye-catcher on debut here in June when slowly into stride and coming from off the pace to grab third close home, STORYINTHESAND is the pick in this winnable novice event. Marco Botti's filly is likely to relish the step up in trip and she can get the better off Feyha, who weakened over a mile here latest and may do better dropped back in trip in a first-time hood. Crystallium and Bush Rose appeal most of the newcomers.
Prediction : 1st Storyinthesand 2nd Feyha 3rd Crystallium

18:15 Kempton

Peace Of Mine is bound to be popular here following a taking success on debut at Salisbury last week. A 6lb penalty may be enough to anchor her, though, and preference is for SHE'S HOT, who ran with credit in the Albany before a career-best effort at Glorious Goodwood last month when second. King Of Ithaca shaped with some promise on debut here in June and is likely to figure alongside Imperial Dream.
Prediction : 1st Shes Hot 2nd Peace Of Mine 3rd King Of Ithaca

WARD CASTLE was not at his best at Yarmouth over 10 furlongs and he may be better judged on his Newmarket third in June over this trip, when keeping on late. Connections try a tongue-tie for the first time and that may be all he needs to get off the mark. Greenscape is reunited with Hector Crouch and could go close in this company, though newcomer Stonking won't need to be anything special to also have a say in the finish.
Prediction : 1st Ward Castle 2nd Greenscape 3rd Stonking

19:20 Kempton

River Derwent could be interesting if a change of stables brings him back to form, with a solid second at the Curragh in May to his name, but preference is for UZINCSO, who has a good record here. 16 runs over this C&D have yielded six victories, the latest in March this year off the same mark of 85. In good form recently on the turf, he could go well back on the all-weather, though three-year-old Kaatibb would be a danger to all if he can get the early lead.
Prediction : 1st Uzincso 2nd Kaatibb 3rd River Derwent

19:50 Kempton

Crystal Casque is entitled to have a say after finishing second on her last three starts, but she may find this trip on the short side and could have to settle for another place. PROFOUND ALEXANDER showed improved form to win her maiden at Ffos Las on heavy ground but hopefully that was down to the first-time blinkers and not the going. A mark of 73 seems fair assuming the headgear works for a second time, leaving C&D winner Under The Twilight to follow them home.
Prediction : 1st Profound Alexander 2nd Crystal Casque 3rd Under The Twilight

20:20 Kempton

Shalfa won readily at Brighton last time and must enter calculations here. However, she is nought from six on the all-weather so preference is for FANTASY NAVIGATOR, who got up late to score over 6f at this venue two starts ago. This longer trip should suit and, with both stable and jockey in fine form at the moment, another bold bid beckons. Return Voyage also warrants respect on her handicap debut.
Prediction : 1st Fantasy Navigator 2nd Shalfa 3rd Return Voyage
