Verdict

INDIAN VISION has impressively notched up a Redcar double and although a further 5lb rise will obviously make life tougher, the improving son of Iffraaj might be able to strike again whilst the iron is hot. Be Perfect has posted a couple of solid efforts in handicap company since comfortably winning a Catterick claimer in early June and he is likely to be in the shake-up again. Searching also warrants respect having gone unpunished for his runner-up effort at Doncaster.

Verdict

SHERIFF GARRETT's winless season has resulted in him sliding to a handy mark and, having given a clear indication that he's back in top form last time, he's capable of taking advantage in a race where few others appeal as being well treated. Be Perfect and Indian Vision arrive in top form, the latter searching for a hat-trick, so they shouldn't be far away.

Lightly-raced maiden. Below form eleventh of 23 in handicap (25/1) at Royal Ascot (8f, good to firm) 20 days ago. Likely to be back on her game returned to calmer waters.

Verdict

ALGAFFAAL made a promising start to his racing career when three-parts of a length second on the Tapeta at Newcastle and, with a handy inside draw, he could prove difficult to beat with normal improvement. Why We Dream has earned a rating of 79 with a number of solid efforts and will find this assignment much easier than when finishing 11th in the Sandringham Handicap at Royal Ascot latest. She is the obvious danger, although Gamesters Icon also brings some solid form to the table, and Joie De Vivre and Bin Makfi are both interesting newcomers.

Verdict

ALGAFFAAL was an expensive yearling with an excellent pedigree, and did more than enough when second on debut at Newcastle to think she's capable of taking an average novice such as this provided she takes to the turf. Why We Dream is the biggest threat on form if she bounces back from a poor display at Royal Ascot and Joie de Vivre is the clear pick of the newcomers.

Foaled March 12. 47,000 gns yearling, Lope De Vega filly. Half-sister to several winners, including smart winner up to 9f Patentar and 7f winner Khamry. One to note on debut.

Verdict

Toffee Galore and Mrs Hoo are just a couple of interesting newcomers that go to post, while Koduro shouldn't be too far away if building on her debut fifth behind AUSSIE VIEW. However, it is the latter who gets the nod representing the same trainer/jockey combination that won this event 12 months ago. The Australia filly found Listed company too hot to handle at Royal Ascot last time, but her three previous efforts in similar races to this had all be solid and she looks capable of winning under a penalty.

Verdict

KODURO might have been 5¾ lengths behind Aussie View on debut, but looks promising, is 7 lb better off today, and could well turn the tables for a stable whose representatives often improve for their debut. Archie Watson is having an excellent season with his juveniles and his newcomer Toffee Galore makes plenty of appeal on paper.

11/2, twelfth of 14 in handicap at Ayr (10f, good) 20 days ago. Significantly back down in trip. Back to a potentially lenient mark, but probably not in the form to take advantage.

Verdict

Roger Fell's INNER CIRCLE was beaten less than two lengths over this distance at Redcar last time but has been given the chance to better that effort here by competing off the same mark. Similar sentiments apply to Grant Tuer's Etikaal who was a handy third at Musselburgh last time, while C&D winner Alexandrakollontai is lurking on a dangerous mark at the foot of the handicap and is interesting now back down in trip having knocked on the door at Hamilton last time.

Verdict

INNER CIRCLE represents a stable that's in a purple patch and, having posted his best effort of the season in a more competitive race than this last time, he's capable of getting his head back in front dropped in grade. The back-in-form Alexandrakollontai is a danger if knuckling down and the lightly-raced Ghayadh is obviously worthy of some attention.

Course winner. Latest win at Catterick in May. 5/1, creditable fourth of 11 in handicap at Doncaster (6f, firm) 12 days ago, having run of race.

Verdict

DAPPER MAN has won four of his last five and Roger Fell's four-year-old looks hard to oppose once again competing from just 2lb higher in the handicap than when routing the opposition at Haydock which leaves him 8lb well in here. War Whisper got the better of the selection at Pontefract thanks to a good ride from Joe Fanning and the jockey will have to be at his very best to avoid the form being reversed here, while Royal Brave is a solid performer entitled to make the podium once again from the same mark as his Thirsk third.

Verdict

DAPPER MAN continues to go from strength to strength, posting another career-best effort when bolting up at Haydock last week. He looks sure to make another bold bid in pursuit of the hat-trick. War Whisper is resurgent for Paul Midgley and feared most, ahead of Billy Dylan.

One win from 68 Flat runs. Thirty seven runs since last win in 2014. 50/1, fourth of 6 in handicap at Musselburgh (5f) 8 days ago. Easy to look elsewhere operating from out the weights.

Verdict

Nuns Walk got the victory her recent form deserved when scoring at Newcastle and has leading claims once again here from just 4lb higher in the ratings. However, preference is for the hat-trick seeking DIZZY G, who has thrived since joining the handicap ranks and Karl Burke's progressive filly can defy a 6lb penalty here. Hugo Palmer's C&D winner Power To Exceed can't be ignored, while Rotherhithe is interesting on her first outing for Richard Fahey having hit the frame on three starts for Robyn Bristland last year.

Verdict

The 3-y-os DIZZY G and Power To Exceed are clearly the most interesting. The former was readily on top when doubling her career tally at Newbury 7 days ago and she is narrowly preferred in her pursuit of the hat-trick. Rotherhithe on debut for Richard Fahey is also worth a second look now plying her trade in handicaps.
