Albany Stakes (Group 3) (1) 6f – 11:30pm

Betting Forecast

$5 Fairyland, $5.5 Just Wonderful, $9 Main Edition, $10 La Pelosa, $11 Stillwater Cove, $13 Angel’s Hideaway, $15 Chicas Amigas, $23 Reponse Exacte, $26 Octave, $34 Byron Bay, $41 Pretty Pollyanna, $51 No More Regrets, $67 Hawayel, $67 Merry Go Round, $101 Cotubanama, $101 Jensue, $101 Nakakande, $126 Satisfying

Analyst’s Verdict

Just Wonderful makes most appeal after a highly encouraging winning debut at the Curragh last month. She’s taken to improve considerably and could be set for the very top (her dam got to a rating of 116 in just 3 juvenile races for Aidan O’Brien). Her stablemate Fairyland has won both her starts to date and commands plenty of respect, as does Main Edition, who has scope for further progress.

King Edward Vii Stakes (Group 2) (1) 1m3f211y – 12:05am

Timeform Rating of previous winners: 134 137 128 127 130 (Avg 131)

Betting Forecast

$4.5 Delano Roosevelt, $6 Raa Atoll, $6 Rostropovich, $7 Old Persian, $11 Giuseppe Garibaldi, $13 Wells Farhh Go, $17 Elector, $17 Highbrow, $41 Alternative Fact

Analyst’s Verdict

Old Persian continues to go from strength to strength and his stamina remains an unopened door to progress, often shaping as though ready for this step up to 1½m, and he should make a bold bid. Raa Atoll looks highly progressive and is another to consider for team Gosden/Dettori, while Delano Roosevelt heads a 3-strong team from Ballydoyle.

Commonwealth Cup (Group 1) (1) 6f – 12:40am

Timeform Rating of previous winners: – – 139 130 136 (Avg 135)

Betting Forecast

$7 Sioux Nation, $7.5 Equilateral, $9 Sands of Mali, $9.5 Invincible Army, $15 Emblazoned, $21 Fleet Review, $21 Laugh A Minute, $23 Eqtidaar, $23 Main Desire, $26 Cardsharp, $29 Gidu, $29 Heartache, $29 Unfortunately, $34 Hey Jonesy, $34 Now You’re Talking, $34 Speak In Colours, $41 Actress, $41 Enjazaat, $51 Roussel, $67 Abel Handy, $67 Fighting Irish, $67 Stone of Destiny

Analyst’s Verdict

Sioux Nation has a progressive record on going faster than good and can provide his trainer with a second successive winner in this race. Sands of Mali and Invincible Army are very closely matched on Sandy Lane form and this likeable pair look sure to give good accounts of themselves, while Equilateral and Emblazoned are lightly-raced sorts who have the potential for better still.

Coronation Stakes (Group 1) (1) 7f213y – 1:20am

Timeform Rating of previous winners: 134 126 137 135 135 (Avg 133)

Top Rated & Flags

Betting Forecast

$4.5 Clemmie, $5.5 Alpha Centauri, $6.5 Billesdon Brook, $7.5 Teppal, $13 Coeur de Beaute, $17 Capla Temptress, $17 Threading, $23 Anna Nerium, $26 Veracious, $34 Adorable, $41 Aim of Artemis, $51 Whitefountainfairy, $301 Nkosikazi

Analyst’s Verdict

Clemmie became the first offspring of Galileo to win a Group 1 over 6f last season, and as a sister to dual-Guineas winner Churchill, she should have more to offer over 1m having shaped encouragingly on her return in the Irish 1000 Guineas. There was no fluke about Billesdon Brook’s win in the Guineas at Newmarket and she has to be considered, while Threading makes each-way appeal at bigger odds.

Sandringham Stakes (Handicap) (2) 1m – 2:00am

Betting Forecast

$10 Qazyna, $13 Ganayem, $15 Dathanna, $15 Ship of Dreams, $17 Agrotera, $17 Ceilidhs Dream, $17 Desert Diamond, $17 Hence, $17 Poetic Charm, $21 Di Fede, $21 Perfection, $26 Broadway, $26 Dark Rose Angel, $26 Tajaanus, $34 Betty F, $34 Pride’s Gold, $34 Wisdom Mind, $41 Ertiyad, $51 Bubble And Squeak, $51 Ortiz, $67 Musical Art, $67 Why We Dream, $151 Escape The City

Analyst’s Verdict

Agrotera looked a useful filly in the making when opening her account at Windsor last month and appeals as the type to do better still now given a crack in handicap company. She gets the vote in what looks a highly competitive event. Ceilidhs Dream is feared most with the return to this trip likely to play to her strengths, whilst Wisdom Mind, Perfection and Ganayem are also much respected.

Duke of Edinburgh Stakes (Handicap) (2) 1m3f211y – 2:35am

Top Rated & Flags

Betting Forecast

$7 Dash of Spice, $9.5 Thundering Blue, $11 Walton Street, $13 Saunter, $15 Appeared, $15 Blakeney Point, $15 Eynhallow, $17 Top Tug, $21 Crowned Eagle, $23 Clear Skies, $23 Grey Britain, $26 Nayel, $29 Fire Fighting, $29 Manjaam, $29 Plutonian, $34 Eddystone Rock, $41 Newlands, $41 Sir Chauvelin, $67 Carbon Dating

Analyst’s Verdict

Not beaten far when fourth in this race off the same mark last year, Top Tug should be spot-on following his solid Goodwood reappearance and is an appealing alternative to Dash of Spice, with value in mind. Dash of Spice is a greatly respected main danger following his impressive performance at Epsom, while Blakeney Point also enters calculations, along with Appeared and Walton Street.
