Race 1 No1 PIRATES’ TALE (Nap)
Trainer: Jimmy Frost – Jockey: Harry Cobden

While my eye is drawn to Lud’Or on a first outing since arriving from France, the form claims of PIRATES’ TALE make him the one to beat. Champion jockey Cobden rides him for the first time on only a fourth outing over hurdles, while the cut in the ground will in no way inconvenience the six-year-old.

Race 3 No6 GREYSTOKE (Each Way)
Trainer: Jimmy Frost – Jockey: Cameron Iles

On what will hopefully prove a good day for the Frost stable, GREYSTOKE can perform better than his forecast prince indicates in this handicap hurdle. Formerly a useful dual-purpose horse for Alan King, he’s shown in just two outings from his new surroundings that he’s retained a lot of his old ability.


Trainer: James Fanshawe – Jockey: Daniel Muscutt

Territories filly MILLITERRIES enters handicaps on what could be a workable mark for a trainer who must always be respected with runners of her ilk from his Newmarket stable. In colours synonymous with several smart performers over the years she can endorse the promise shown in three educational outings last year that gained her a mark.

Race 5 No6 ELIM
Trainer: Ed Bethell – Jockey: Connor Beasley

As a four-year-old with only four outings under her belt, ELIM could have some wiggle room from her rating, for a trainer who sent out a big winner in the same colours at York last week. The daughter of Make Believe needs to shrug aside an absence of just over a year, but she looked highly promising when last seen and this is only her second outing on turf.

Race 7 No8 LOOSE TONGUE (Each Way)
Trainer: David Evans – Jockey: Phil Dennis

Land Force filly LOOSE TONGUE could be the way to go in this second division of the seven-furlong handicap. She put in an improved effort to trouble the judge at Wolverhampton when returned 125-1. The application of a first-time hood assisted her, and though having more progression to make, could go forward sufficiently to earn at a double-figure price.


Trainer: Karl Burke – Jockey: DannyTudhope

There was no disgrace in defeat for RIVER SEINE against a Godolphin hot pot at Newmarket. She displayed good natural gate speed and although collared, the form was boosted when the third home won. With previous winner Golden Paradise defecting after being declared, the Soldier’s Call filly looks to have a straightforward assignment.

Race 5 No3 PABORUS (Nap)
Trainer: Ed Bethell – Jockey: Callum Rodriguez

River Seine will be short, but at longer odds PABORUS is napped. He impressed with his attitude when opening his account over seven furlongs at Redcar, and is strongly fancied to follow up under a penalty for a trainer whose horses have been running nicely into form.

Trainer: Brian Ellison – Jockey: Ben Robinson

Although he’s had a few chances, the ultra-consistent NORTHERN CRACKSMAN deserves another opportunity to show he’s got what it takes to win. Various headgear has been tried but tonight his trainer trades a visor for blinkers, a move which could see him safe home.


Trainer: Clive Cox – Jockey: Rossa Ryan

Cox’s juveniles are well worth following at this stage of the season, and SERGIO PARISSE commands respect after his eye-taking introduction at Leicester. He did not go unbacked before claiming a minor cheque on that occasion and will enjoy stretching out to the 1200 metres distance tonight. In what looks a warm heat a market check is advised on Keep Singing, who has been ready to run for a while, and shows promise.

Trainer: Andrew Balding – Jockey: Oisin Murphy

The Balding/Murphy combo mean business with Siyouni filly CLOVE HITCH whose first run of 2024 when third to Economics at Newbury was given a massive boost when the latter won the Dante Stakes at York last week. Just two and three-quarter lengths separated them on that occasion, making my selection the go-to horse in this fillies’ maiden

Race 5 No6 MISS ATTITUDE. (Each Way)
Trainer: Jack Channon – Jockey: Charles Bishop

MISS ATTITUDE displayed blistering speed as a two-year-old only to find training issues keeping her off the course for the whole of 2023. The Cityscape filly has grown into an imposing individual, and having shown in training that she’s retained her old ability, is worth a speculative punt to get into the money, though she’s sure to be a tad rusty.
