Betting Forecast

$3.25 Glitter Girl, $11 Arwa, $13 Rosabelle, Fire Palace, $15 Norwegian Highness, Bloomin Lovely, Storm Cry, $7 The Stalking Moon, La Casa Tarifa, Island Vision, $21 Money In My Pocket, $41 bar

Analyst’s Verdict

Glitter Girl‘s entry in the Rockfel suggests she is thought to be ahead of her handicap mark and she could well get the hat-trick up under Ryan Moore. Ripon winner Arwa, Rosabelle and Fire Palace are all interesting types also.

Race 2 Clugston Construction May Hill Stakes (Group 2) (1) 1m 11:30pm

Timeform Rating of previous winners: 124 128 123 116 120 (Avg 122)

Betting Forecast

$3.75 Kilmah, $4.5 Blending, $5.5 Rich Legacy, $9 Grecian Light, $12 Urban Fox, $19 Tiburtina, $21 Hidden Steps, $26 Reachforthestars, $34 Bongrace

Analyst’s Verdict

Kilmah had several of these behind her when making all in the Prestige Stakes at Goodwood last time. She showed a great attitude there and is expected to relish this stiffer test of stamina. Blending looks dangerous after her improved display at Newmarket, while Rich Legacy wasn’t seen to best advantage behind the selection last time and is expected to do better here.

Race 3 DFS Park Hill Stakes (Group 2) (1) 1¾m132y 12:05am

Timeform Rating of previous winners: 123 124 121 122 120 (Avg 122)

Betting Forecast

$4 Abingdon, $7 Simple Verse, $9.5 Pretty Perfect, California, $10 Alyssa, $15 Carnachy, $19 Tioga Pass, $23 Forever Popular, $26 Pamona, Mill Springs, $41 bar

Analyst’s Verdict

Abingdon continued her progression when landing a listed race at York in taking fashion last month. She promises better yet, particularly over this longer trip, and is strongly fancied to score again. Simple Verse returns to the scene of her Classic success and has to be respected despite her disappointing effort last time. California and Pretty Perfect are next best.

Race 4 Weatherbys Hamilton £300,000 2-Y-O Stakes (2) 6f110y 12:40am

Timeform Rating of previous winners: 119 121 114 120 119 (Avg 119)

Analyst’s Verdict

Spiritual Lady has heaps going for her on these terms and can make it 3 wins from 4 starts and give her connections a bumper payday. York 1-2 Stormy Clouds and Rusumaat have to be respected, while Global Applause and Mubtasim both contested the Gimcrack last time and clearly boast plenty of class.

Race 5 crownhotel-bawtry.com Handicap (2) 1¼m60y 1:15am

Betting Forecast

$4 Poet’s Word, $6.5 Central Square, Lusory, $7 Bermondsey, $11 Cote d’Azur, $15 Ode To Evening, $21 Niceofyoutotellme, $26 Chancery, $29 Awake My Soul, Emerald, $34 Tres Coronas

Analyst’s Verdict

Poet’s Word is clearly an improving 3-y-o, the type which his astute handler has done so well with down the years, and he is fancied to follow up his Goodwood success here before going on to better things. In a race where the younger generation may dominate, Bermondsey, Lusory and Cote d’Azur make up the shortlist.

Race 6 DFS British Stallion Studs EBF Maiden Stakes (3) 1m 1:50am

Timeform Rating of previous winners: 101 95 103 100 120 (Avg 104)

Top Rated & Flags

Betting Forecast

$3.75 Hydroxide, $4 Glencadam Glory, $4.5 The Anvil, $11 Wolf Country, $15 Okool, $17 Never Surrender, $29 Saint Cuthberts, $34 Helovaplan

Analyst’s Verdict

Hydroxide was hindered by the combination of a very slow start and a steady gallop on debut at Newmarket recently, but he still shaped with plenty of encouragement, only narrowly failing to get up close home. He undoubtedly rates the type to do better and earns the vote, though The Anvil and Glencadam Glory are both of a very similar ilk and should give Hugo Palmer’s charge plenty to think about.

Race 8 Ladbrokes Handicap (3) 6f 3:00am

Top Rated & Flags

Betting Forecast

$12 Ashpan Sam, $13 Fendale, Little Palaver, Highland Acclaim, $15 Tiger Jim, War Whisper, $17 Lucky Beggar, Shipyard, Fairway To Heaven, $21 Misterioso, $23 Rosie’s Premiere, Regal Dan, $26 Intense Style, Celebration, $29 Duke Cosimo, $34 Links Drive Lady, Pomme de Terre, $41 bar

Analyst’s Verdict

Fendale gets the nod in a wide-open finale. First home amongst those drawn on the unfavoured side at Ripon last time, he is on a decent mark at present and represents a yard that could hardly be in better form. Tiger Jim has shaped well recently and is feared most with Lucky Beggar, Little Palaver and Ashpan Sam next on the list of dangers.
