Verdict

A match on paper between BLAME ROBERTA and Implicit. The latter comes out top on official ratings and is clearly a lot better than she showed in the St Hugh's Stakes at Newbury last month, but Robert Cowell's filly was some 25 lengths ahead of her in that Listed contest and she will arrive full of confidence following a maiden victory at Leicester 11 days ago. Magical Duchess can beat Kyroc to third.

Verdict

IMPLICIT found listed company too much last time but had been progressing nicely prior to that and is narrowly preferred to recent Leicester scorer Blame Roberta in what will likely develop into a match between the pair.

Lightly-raced maiden. Fourth of 5 in nursery at Brighton (6f, good), no extra late on. Drop to 5f could help.

Verdict

FROSTED LASS has run well in a couple of novice races at Thirsk, finishing a close-up sixth over 5f before a third over 6f. The early pace she showed last time suggests that dropping back in distance for her nursery debut will suit, and she can exploit an opening mark of 60. Epona has top weight to shoulder but can make the frame, while One One Seven will be out to prove that his narrow Ayr defeat was no fluke.

Verdict

FROSTED LASS travelled comfortably for a long way over 6f at Thirsk last time and leaves the impression there should be more to come now handicapping back down at the minimum trip. Epona has reached the frame on all 3 starts in novices and should get involved off this opening mark, while Lang Toun Lady is also a contender after her improved third in selling company last time.

In the middle of a good spell, landing 10-runner event over C&D (good to firm) 16 days ago. Likely to go close again.

Verdict

LUCKY VIOLET has been running consistently well for a number of months and deservedly got her head back in front over C&D latest. Despite running from 1lb out of the handicap, she shades the verdict ahead of Whatsthemessage, a course winner who was only beaten two lengths in a class 3 handicap over 7f at this venue latest. Forever A Lady, another to run well here in recent times, can't be ruled out either.

Verdict

WHATSTHEMESSAGE's mark has gradually edged down this year and she could be the way to go in this lower grade. Stablemate Forever A Lady got bogged down on soft here last time but the ground should be a bit quicker on this occasion and she could provide the main threat ahead of recent C&D scorer Lucky Violet.

20/1 and blinkered first time, fifth of 8 in handicap at Haydock (8f, good to firm) 72 days ago. Visor on 1st time.

Verdict

The Curragh-based Just Sherry made a successful raid on Ayr two starts ago and was then far from disgraced off this mark at Chepstow. She should give another good account, but preference is for the top-weight AFFINA. She will likely find this track a lot easier to handle than Brighton and Epsom, where she has visited the last twice, and first-time cheekpieces could eke out some improvement. Falmouth Light can figure if on a going day.

Verdict

SPRAY THE SEA was caught wide last time and is worth one more chance to confirm the promise of his Hamilton win in July as he'd looked a handicapper going places on that occasion. Falmouth Light disappointed last time but his reappearance win for this yard is still fresh in the memory, while Just Sherry is enjoying a productive spell.

14/1, sixth of 7 in handicap at Newcastle (12.4f) 12 days ago, fading having dictated pace. Has work to do.

Verdict

BILL CODY won on two visits to Redcar in August and despite rising another 3lb, appears more than capable of landing a hat-trick having excelled since stepping up in trip. Artarmon has scored twice over this distance this season and should provide the stiffest test, and apprentice Clifford Lee removes a handy 3lb. Lynwood Gold looks the pick of the Mark Johnston pair, with Lucky Deal having disappointed recently, while Amazing Michele won off this mark earlier in the season.

Verdict

ARTARMON hasn't looked back since fitted with a visor and is taken to defy the handicapper again. The Mark Johnston pair Lynwood Gold and Lucky Deal have to enter the reckoning, while Amazing Michele was a bit better than the result last time and is unexposed at this trip.

Verdict

MR SHELBY went very close to getting his head back in front here over 5f at the end of last month having seemingly improved for a change to front-running tactics. He struggled at Hamilton on Thursday but the step up in trip on a sharp track is likely to suit. Colour Contrast is of interest dropping in distance, while Frank's Legacy can bounce back after defeat when sent off an odds-on favourite at Yarmouth in July.

Verdict

There's a good chance FRANK'S LEGACY simply found the run coming a bit quick on him after his Newcastle win when beaten favourite at Yarmouth a week later and he's worth another chance having been freshened up since. Colour Contrast is hard to win with but took a step back in the right direction last time and should figure again, while Irish-raider Texas Radio also merits respect.

Verdict

POLYPHONY has shown promise on most of her racecourse appearances so far and despite being a beaten favourite at Ripon in July, shaped as though a step up in trip would suit. She was also dropped 2lb for that outing and is capable of getting her head in front. Great Colaci ran below par at Newcastle last week but is a lot better than he showed on that occasion, while Tember is considered if the visor has a similar effect to last time when fourth at Leicester.

Verdict

POLYPHONY never really looked comfortable on the undulations of Ripon last time but the fact she went off favourite suggests connections are hopeful she's on a favourable mark and this step up to 7f should be in her favour. Great Colaci went off too hard last time and is likely still in form, while Tember can also figure if the visor continues to have a positive effect.

Remains a maiden after 19 Flat runs. Blinkered for 1st time, fifth of 12 in handicap (66/1) at this C&D (good) 8 days ago.

Verdict

TWENTYSVNTHLANCERS was triumphant at Beverley when holding on gamely in the closing stages, and he returns to a course he already has winning form at this season. Jeffrey Harris arrives on the back of a career-best effort over C&D last week, while the consistent Miss Dd has finished second on her last three outings and is expected to be in the mix once again.

Verdict

KINLOCH PRIDE can have a line drawn through her latest run here and is taken to resume winning ways. Jeffrey Harris seems sure to pick up a handicap like this in the coming weeks and also makes plenty of appeal.
