Third of 5 in nursery (14/1) at Chester (6.1f, good) 15 days ago. Has work to do.

Verdict

HAPPY ODYSSEY has done enough in three novice heats to suggest a mark of 73 is a more than workable one on her nursery debut and the Newmarket winner can get the better of Quiet Waters. Archie Watson's filly struggled on her first foray into handicaps at HQ recently but previous winning form at Nottingham and Lingfield sticks in the memory. Jensue and Sabai Sabai are others expected to go well.

Verdict

SABAI SABAI was ahead of no fewer than 4 next-time-out winners when fourth in a big-field maiden at Goodwood 19 days ago and there has to be a chance the assessor has let her in lightly on this nursery debut. Happy Odyssey and Kwela are feared most.

Promising individual. 40/1, fifth of 13 in minor event at Windsor (10f, good to firm) 14 days ago, not knocked about. Makes handicap debut. Shortlist material.

Verdict

Dependable is noted on her handicap debut and chances are also given to Point In Time, a winner at Newmarket last time and the mount of the bang in-form Oisin Murphy, and Floria Tosca. The vote is for GRAVINA, though, as she tries 1m4f for the first time and, for all she was a beaten favourite off this mark here last time, is lightly raced in handicap company and could still have more to offer.

Verdict

DEPENDABLE caught the eye on her third qualifying run at Windsor a fortnight ago, and representing a yard in terrific form, she is expected to take a leap forward. Point In Time and Floria Tosca are closely matched on their Newmarket clash, but The Last Debutante is feared most.

Latest win at Chester in July. 14/1, seventh of 10 in handicap at Goodwood (7f, good to firm) 16 days ago.

Verdict

PRESIDENTIAL won well enough in this grade at Redcar latest to suggest he'll be able to cope with a 6lb rise. Roger Fell's charge shouldered top weight to success on that occasion and everything points to another big performance over the same trip. Of the others, Welliesinthewater arrives in good nick and cannot be overlooked, while Easy Tiger deserves to get his head back in front.

Verdict

FIRMDECISIONS paid the price for a big move into contention when behind Presidential at Redcar last week, but he did enough to think he's in good nick and he's certainly weighted to beat that rival this time. A bigger threat may emerge in the shape of Del Parco.

Foaled March 6. 6,000 gns yearling, Dawn Approach filly. Half-sister to 3 winners, including smart 7f winner Dabyah and useful 1m winner Sam Gold. Dam 9.7f winner.

Verdict

OVER THE GUNS made a very promising start to his career when successful over the 6f trip here in June, outrunning odds of 40-1, and that maiden has produced six subsequent winners. The son of Garswood has had a break but was doing his best work at the finish over 6f on his introduction suggesting the step up to this trip will suit. He has also been found a decent opening against these rivals and can give the likes of Stellar Comet and Silkstone weight and a beating.

Verdict

OVER THE GUNS is a good looker and overcame considerable greenness when making a winning debut at this track (6f) in June and he's potentially a useful sort. Stellar Comet should have more to offer, while Coutts de Ville makes some appeal on paper.

Verdict

FIVE HELMETS is one of only two previous winners in the field and an impressive one at that. Tom Dascombe's charge appreciated the slight step up in trip at Beverley when exploiting a mark of 68 and he's effectively 1lb lower under a 6lb penalty when taking into account Elisha Whittington's 7lb claim in the plate. Mr Diamond, Strawberry Jack and Sophosc are expected to put up most resistance.

Verdict

DARWINA showed her first worthwhile form when fourth in a minor event at Ripon a fortnight ago and the assessor could have taken a dimmer view of that display, so she's worth supporting upped further in trip. Mr Diamond, Disruptor and Sophosc are a trio of potential improvers.

Verdict

RUX RUXX performed well, despite letting down favourite backers, at Lingfield last time and is worth sticking with while her Lingfield success two starts ago remains fresh in the memory and given she's really taken her form to a new level this summer. Ninjago gets a drop in class and would be no surprise winner, while Storm Melody is a player on his Chepstow success two starts back, though punters will have to forgive a lacklustre Ffos Las performance.

Verdict

RUX RUXX took another step forward despite failing to justify favouritism at Lingfield 16 days ago and she makes plenty of appeal as an improving 3-y-o. Geoff Potts should be more comfortable early back over 6f, while Ninjago takes a further dip in class.
