Once-raced maiden. 33/1, sixth of 7 in maiden at Sandown (5f, firm) on debut 16 days ago. Should improve.

Verdict

Magical Wish has to be respected following his narrow victory at Windsor last month but a 7lb penalty will make life harder for him. With that in mind, the preference is for BE LIKE ME following her second-placed effort at Nottingham last week. The daughter of Helmet has run well in all previous starts and should not be underestimated. Others to note are Fizzy Feet and Anandita.

Verdict

MAGICAL WISH got off the mark at the second time of asking at Windsor last month and looks sure to progress further. He can go in again. Be Like Me and Fizzy Feet look the obvious dangers.

Verdict

AHUNDREDNOTOUT has made the frame in some competitive handicaps in Ireland recently and his yard tend to do well with their runners in this country. Counterfeit got her head in front when last seen in May and she could go well off just 1lb higher in the ratings. Others to consider are Ingleby Molly, Monsieur Mel and Passing Star.

Verdict

PASSING STAR should have come on for his first run in 5 months at Lingfield and makes plenty of appeal now down into a 0-60 with Silvestre De Sousa up. Ahundrednotout, Counterfeit and Ingleby Molly are all considered also.

Verdict

GOOD TYNE GIRL struggled in the Super Sprint last time out and but her previous form suggests she should prove to be a class above these. Solesmes would be a threat if making the line-up, but it would be a quick turnaround after finishing third at Brighton on Wednesday. Go Annie Go has already won at this level but she has 15lb to find with the selection according to official ratings. Thegreyvtrain may struggle to win but may pick up some minor money.

Verdict

GOOD TYNE GIRL was well beaten in the Newbury Super Sprint last time but has solid claims on her earlier form which includes a win at Leicester. Solesmes is respected back in a seller.

Verdict

PODEMOS was disappointing when fancied to go well on his handicap debut at Haydock behind Sea Youmzain having raced far too freely for his own good. On his second to Almoghared at Chepstow, he would take plenty of beating in a novice contest of this nature. Newcomer Dress Coat represents Saeed bin Suroor, who has his string in excellent form so he has to warrant respect, while a visor can see Harawi take a step forward from his debut when down the field at Newbury.

Verdict

DRESS COAT wouldn't need to be out of the ordinary to make a winning debut here and the hint should be taken if the market speaks in his favour. Legal History boats some decent pieces of form but he doesn't look especially progressive and, moreover, this step up in trip poses a serious question. As such, bigger threats may be posed by Podemos and likely improvers Jaquar and Harawi.

Verdict

SERVO is more than entitled to be forgiven a disappointing effort when returning to turf at Haydock and only beating one rival home behind Save The Bees. His recent course form is solid and he can bounce back to his best off what looks a winnable mark. Beatbybeatbybeat has been knocking on the door recently, with three seconds in her last four starts, and she is likely to be in the mix once again along with Lexington Empire, who got off the mark over C&D latest.

Verdict

LEXINGTON EMPIRE likely has more to offer after opening his account over C&D last month and can defy a 6 lb rise. Sicario is on the upgrade and has to be respected.

Verdict

CONKERING HERO notched up a hat-trick when successful over course and distance last time and appears hard to oppose under a 6lb penalty. He had Cry Wolf three and a half lengths adrift that day and Alexandra Dunn's gelding may get closer this time on revised terms. Scrafton is another to have denied the aforementioned rival when they met over shorter in April and he is entitled to get involved as well.

Verdict

CONKERING HERO was full value for his win here last week, his third in a row, and looks set for further success. Gravity Wave is the one for the forecast.

Verdict

STRINGYBARK CREEK has impressed in winning the last twice and the forward-going gelding can land a quick-fire hat-trick under a 6lb penalty. Celtic Artisan was second over course and distance last time and the track and trip winner must be considered off the same mark, while Topology offered encouragement over seven furlongs here last time and is another who could get involved.

Verdict

STRINGYBARK CREEK is effectively just 3 lb higher compared to when scoring at Nottingham recently and is taken to complete the hat-trick. Celtic Artisan hit the crossbar over C&D off this mark last time and may emerge as the main threat. That said, Topology enters calculations following his solid effort here in June and Indiana Dawn also needs considering back at a more suitable trip.
