Race 1 – 2:30 – Abbey Park Handicap – Class 5 – 5f

Race Analysis:

Cardinal and Harrogate Fair bumped into an in-form rival when chasing home Taurus Twins (since completed his hat-trick) when they finished second and third respectively at Nottingham 17 days ago. That pair should once again play a prominent role but it is Secret Millionaire (IRE) who is the each-way selection. Tony Carroll’s sprinter won twice on polytrack in March and then put behind him a minor blip with a good Brighton second, a rock-solid run which was made to look even better when the winner (Ladweb) went in again next time.

Selection: Secret Millionaire (each-way)

Race 2 – 3:00 – Stathern Claiming Stakes – Class 5 – 7f

Race Analysis:

Belayer (IRE) is best in at the Official Weights and is now dropped massively in class having failed to beat a single rival in two Class 3 handicaps thus far this term. He still appears risky being so badly out of sorts, as does three-time all-weather winner Slinky Mcvelvet who isn’t anything like as effective on turf. Far less exposed and worthy of support at potentially longer odds is Native Heart. Jamie Osborne’s low-mileage grey produced a much-improved effort when a staying-on second to a fair sort over 6f at Salisbury recently, and there’s every chance the filly is capable of better yet given this stiffer stamina test should suit. Seaham also has bits of pieces of form to suggest he can also take a hand if the cards fall kindly.

Selection: Native Heart

Race 3 – 3:30 – Coronation Fillies´ Handicap (Bobis Race) – Class 4 – 7f

Race Analysis:

Miss Lillie ended 2013 on a high by winning a Newmarket Fillies Maiden, nor was she disgraced in the Group 3 Fred Darling Stakes on return. She’s back swimming in much shallower waters here and is the confident selection. The William Haggas stable has been running riot of late, hence if Meeting Waters is fancied to make a successful seasonal reappearance the betting will likely speak in her favour. Nirva (IRE) won a course-and-distance maiden in April but then bombed off this mark at York’s Dante meeting. It’s way too soon to be writing her off, however the handicapper does seem to have the measure of Bridie Ffrench, who probably needs to find a bit more if she’s to record a second career victory.

Selection: Miss Lillie

Race 4 – 4:00 – Brock Hill Handicap – Class 5 – 1m 3f 183y

Race Analysis:

A frankly pitiful turn out. Kings Bayonet is much better known as a useful hurdler these days and he could certainly do with a longer trip having stayed on to take third spot over 1m6f when tried back on the Flat at Goodwood recently. However, the excellent Hayley Turner is a no-nonsense sort of rider, so will likely make it true test by setting a strong gallop which could fettle Warrigal (IRE), a decent enough runner-up on polytrack last time but well beaten on his sole try on turf to date. Hunting Ground (USA) has totally lost the plot of late and, after being beaten an aggregate of nearly 100 lengths on his most recent 3 outings, is hard to get excited about despite the paucity of runners.

Selection: Kings Bayonet

Race 5 – 4:30 – British Stallion Studs EBF Maiden Fillies´ Stakes (Bobis Race) – Class 4 – 5f

Race Analysis:

London Life (IRE) is a likeable filly who is improving with each run, finding just one too good when staying on well to grab second spot at Chester 19 days ago. However neither Persun nor Golden Zephyr (IRE) will make it easy for her both having made highly-promising debuts, the first-named belying odds of 25/1 when only beaten a length at Newbury, while Golden Zephyr was doing all of her best work in the closing stages at Ascot earlier in the month. Of the two newcomers Efusive appears the most likely to make an impact. By all-conquering sire Pivotal out of Thrill, a dual winner who went very well on soft ground, she looks the part and any significant market support could well prove to be curtains for the rest.

Selection: London Life

Race 6 – 5:00 – British Stallion Studs EBF Maiden Stakes (Bobis Race) – Class 4 – 5f 218y

Race Analysis:

Team Hannon won this in 2013 via Toormore (IRE), a subsequent dual Group 2 and Group 1 winner. Silver Ranger is unlikely to hit those giddy heights, even so he was a promising third on debut at York and it’ll take a good one to beat him here. None of the others with previous experience make much appeal, so it’s the newcomers that are likely to challenge possibly led by Azraff (IRE), out of a dam who has produced 3 winners, plus from a yard well-capable of getting a juvenile in the sort of shape required to score at the first time of asking. Goldolphin’s Classic Collection is also bred to be useful at the very least and could be anything, but the already-gelded Limato (IRE) is likely to need a longer trip before seeing what he’s really made of.

Selection: Silver Ranger

Race 7 – 5:30 – Oadby Handicap – Class 6 – 1m 1f 218y

Race Analysis:

It has all gone wrong for Improvized since winning on debut at Brighton in September, but if the fitting of a first-time tongue tie does its job then she could still figure in a wide-open finale. Speedbird One hated fibresand last time but isn’t one to dismiss just yet since the pick of her form at Peter Chapple-Hyam’s in 2013 was with cut in the ground at Epsom. The form of that maiden has worked out well and Speedbird One is far less exposed than James Given’s other entry Queenie’s Home, who might need to drop even further in the weights before getting her head back in front. Jazri showed admirable guts to cling on at Warwick last time and can’t be ruled out in a trappy finale.

Selection: Speedbird One
