Lightly-raced maiden. 11/8, good second of 10 in minor event at Kempton (7f) 12 days ago. Getting better with each recent run.

Verdict

Kilbarchan got off the mark at the first time of asking at Chelmsford, justifying favouritism at the chief expense of a subsequent winner and showing a pleasing attitude to do so. Nina Petrovna is edging ever closer to the winner's enclosure and should be in the thick of things, but COOLAGH MAGIC made a debut full of promise in a York race won by last week's July Stakes fourth, and Richard Fahey's youngster is fancied to build on that.

Verdict

KILBARCHAN looked above average when beating a subsequent winner (clear of rest) on debut at Chelmsford last month and is taken to defy a penalty. Nina Petrovna is getting better with each run and has to be respected, with the other penalised winner Wee Jim also worth considering.

10/1, respectable third of 9 in handicap at this C&D (good to firm) 7 days ago. 4 lb 'wrong' at the weights.

Verdict

Star Cracker was a position ahead of Jessie Allan when fourth over course and distance last week and is capable of gaining his revenge on Naples Bay, who beat him here in May before struggling at Nottingham. The penny appears to have dropped for Burmese Blazer but another chance is given to REVENGE, who has let down favourite-backers more than once this campaign but remains on a decent rating.

Verdict

REVENGE has found just one too strong on 3 of his last 4 starts and, with the form of his latest run at Redcar boosted by the winner, he is the most appealing of these. This is easier than the York handicap B Fifty Two contested last time and he looks dangerous. Star Cracker should also be on the premises.

Verdict

Callum Rodriguez kept it simple on ROCK N ROLLA at Carlisle, sending the 2-1 favourite to the front and keeping him there. There is every chance that he will be able to dictate terms to suit himself again and is fancied to defy an 8lb rise. Odds On Oli came up short in a good classified event at Newcastle and will be happier here, while Doon Star and Blue Medici have plenty of scope for improvement.

Verdict

A chance is taken on MAULESDEN MAY, who hasn't been firing on all cylinders of late but she won back-to-back C&D handicaps off higher marks last summer. Odds On Oli and Remember Rocky may emerge as the main dangers.

Verdict

Magical Effect was only beaten a length into second at both Chester and Beverley but may have to settle for another supporting role, this time behind LUIS VAZ DE TORRES. Richard Fahey's gelding was a bit below par at Epsom but previously underlined his versatility with victories at Wetherby and this venue on contrasting surfaces. Zylan arrives in fine fettle, and the three-year-old Viscount Loftus also merits a mention.

Verdict

ZYLAN has returned to form, scoring at Beverley prior to hitting the crossbar in a 7f Haydock handicap 11 days ago. Everything looks in place for another bold show and he is marginally preferred to Magical Effect, who has been knocking on the door of late. Viscount Loftus and Tommy G are others to consider.

Latest win at Ripon in April. 14/1, fourth of 6 in handicap at York (10.2f, good to firm) 16 days ago. Back down in trip and no more than an each-way squeak.

Verdict

Mark Johnston's duo of Poet's Society and Vale Of Kent have won their fair share this season already and could go well again, while Presidential has made incredible progress since scoring at Doncaster in April, going up 19lb for three victories but still remaining competitive. Mythical Madness bolted up at Haydock, but preference is for BROTHER McGONAGALL. Tim Easterby's charge made it three wins on the spin with an emphatic success over C&D and can land the four-timer.

Verdict

PRESIDENTIAL has proved a model of consistency this year and is taken to add to his tally. He lost little caste in defeat when third off this mark in the Carlisle Bell last time and may prove too strong for the Mark Johnston-trained duo, Vale of Kent and Poet's Society. Nicholas T is another with decent claims.

Latest win at Redcar in May. Fourth of 7 in handicap (12/1) at Hamilton (8.3f, good to firm) 14 days ago. Visor back on.

Verdict

An open race with a number of in-form horses taking on some course regulars. Testa Rossa fits in the latter camp and is not without claims off his current mark, while War Department had been disappointing before running second over C&D. Racemaker's recent form has been really solid and he must enter the reckoning, but the assessor seems to have taken a chance in dropping MUSTAQBAL 1lb for a fair third at Carlisle and he can strike at a course he's enjoyed success at before.

Verdict

RACEMAKER has reacted really well to blinkers of late, finishing placed both starts following last month's win at Thirsk and he rates the percentage call. Mustaqbal isn't totally straightforward but is capable of figuring, along with recent scorer Smugglers Creek.

Lightly-raced maiden. Ninth of 12 in handicap (8/1) at Hamilton (9.2f, soft) 26 days ago. Significantly up in trip.

Verdict

Sir Mark Prescott's ability when raising young handicappers in trip is legendary, and he looks to have followed his blueprint with TIMOSHENKO. The three-year-old showed precious little in his first four outings, but left all that behind when stepped up to 1m4f at Chepstow and a 4lb rise might not stop him, with his young rider having scored twice from four mounts so far. Claramara was back to form at Beverley and has claims, while Enemy Of The State and Sincerely Resdev are not without a chance either.

Verdict

TIMOSHENKO is a stayer on the up and has other entries near to hand, so it wouldn't be a surprise were this the second leg of a sequence given his profile. Claramara was also successful last time and is the obvious second choice.
