17:30 Southwell

It might be worth chancing IMPERIAL ACE to reverse that form from his debut with Roaring Legend. He ran green that day but you could see the penny dropping late and he ran on strongly at the finish only beaten 2 and three quarter lengths. He was only a length and a half behind the second and he improved markedly to win easily at Newcastle. This test will suit even better and at around 4/1 at the time of writing I think he represents decent value. Hugo Palmer is in good form too in comparison to James Ferguson who has been quiet of late. Regal Empire left his debut run well behind when winning easily over C&D last time and he is another one I expect to get competitive if improving again. Bravura has already been gelded but ran well when second to Mohatu and that horse has gone in again since getting the verdict in the stewards room here last week so that is pretty solid form.

Imperial Ace - 1pt @ 4/1
