AIRA FORCE could be the answer to a competitive heat. The Oasis Dream filly has progressed with each run so far and runs off the same mark as when finishing second at Kempton on her handicap bow last month. Elongate narrowly failed to land a gamble when runner-up at Chelmsford last time and a repeat effort could see her go close. Phoenix Glow and Mintana have each-way claims.
Prediction : 1st Aira Force 2nd Elongate 3rd Phoenix Glow

MENALIPPE was a cosy winner of her penultimate start over C&D and although she comes here off a 7lb higher mark, she's clearly in a rich vein of form at present and there appears to reason to suggest why she can't go close again. That said, River Usk was having her first try at this trip when half a length behind the selection last time and is weighted to reverse those placings this time around. Love Fifteen had no chance behind runaway winner Vondelpark at Ripon last month and this sharper distance won't be an inconvenience.
Prediction : 1st Menalippe 2nd River Usk 3rd Love Fifteen

Charlie Appleby has a formidable strike-rate with his two-year-olds this season and his well-bred Cannon Rock can't be discounted. However, POWER OF GOLD was very popular in the betting on his debut when runner-up at Ayr last month and looks sure to to have learned plenty from that experience. He was just over two lengths behind Hi Royal on that occasion, having looked green, and appeared to get the hang of things late on. Any market confidence behind the Simon and Ed Crisford-trained newcomer Bolster could be significant.
Prediction : 1st Power Of Gold 2nd Cannon Rock 3rd Bolster

A case can be made for several of these, but MR PROFESSOR gets a three-year-old allowance in this contest and seems fairly well treated as a result. He is rated 2lb higher than Just Fine, who drops in class following a creditable run at Doncaster last month, but the selection carries 2lb less than him and is entitled to improve on a fourth-placed run last time now stepping up in trip. Noble Mark also merits consideration up in class.
Prediction : 1st Mr Professor 2nd Just Fine 3rd Noble Mark

15:45 Leicester

This could go the way of the hat-trick seeking EEH BAH GUM, who defied a 7lb rise in the handicap on his latest victory and a 5lb raised mark for that most recent win may not be enough to stop him securing a treble. Alcazan kept on strongly to score in a competitive handicap at Goodwood last month and is feared most ahead of the John Butler-trained Haveoneyerself.
Prediction : 1st Eeh Bah Gum 2nd Alcazan 3rd Haveoneyerself

16:20 Leicester

In a fairly open contest, preference is for the very unexposed OASIS GIFT, who made a pleasing stable debut for Clive Cox when keeping on well to shed his maiden tag at the third time of asking at Chepstow last month. A stiffer stamina test may help him follow that up, but Angel Amadea recorded a much-improved second on her latest run and is feared, ahead of Hagia Sophia.
Prediction : 1st Oasis Gift 2nd Angel Amadea 3rd Hagia Sophia

16:55 Leicester

Touchwood has posted some creditable efforts of late and Charlie Hills' inmate merits respect now eased 1lb in the handicap. CUBANISTA makes greater appeal, though, after being narrowly denied over C&D in early August and the gelding's subsequent effort, when finishing sixth at Yarmouth over 1m, is worth forgiving after pulling too hard. Gypsy Whisper and Liangel Hope can fight out the minor honours.
Prediction : 1st Cubanista 2nd Touchwood 3rd Gypsy Whisper

17:25 Leicester

The unexposed SIR WINSTON has been given an opening mark of 76 which may underestimate his ability, the son of Churchill progressed with each run last year on the all-weather and Roger Varian should have him fit enough to do himself justice on his return. Trumble appears to do his best running at Chelmsford but if translating that form to the turf, he would have solid credentials. Nikki's Girl was a comprehensive winner over C&D in June and although she's failed to win since, she's posted a couple of solid efforts in the meantime and warrants respect.
Prediction : 1st Sir Winston 2nd Nikkis Girl 3rd Trumble
