Race 2 No1 FLASH BETTY (Nap)
Trainer: Mick Channon – Jockey: Nicola Currie
FLASH BETTY fell to the well supported Hollow Steel in a Ripon seller and now tries her luck in a nursery. She isn’t an easy ride, as shown that day and on her previous start at Leicester, but there’s an engine under her bonnet that should manifest itself today.
Race 7 No3 SULOCHANA
Trainer: Hughie Morrison – Jockey: Charles Bishop
Lope De Vega filly SULOCHANA is back in the grade that saw her gain back-to-back triumphs in the spring, having finished just out of the money in a better race at Sandown last time. Her shrewd handler has freshened her up, and she can resume winning ways.
Race 3 No9 ROYSTAN GIRL (Nap)
Trainer: Stan Moore – Jockey: Josephine Gordon
ROYSTAN GIRL has the edge on her foes by way of greater experience and should know too much for the promising Clifford. The selection has taken home a cheque on her latest starts at Nottingham and Windsor, improving for the fitting of cheekpieces that her trainer retains.
Race 8 No10 CHICKENFORTEA (Each Way)
Trainer: Declan Carroll – Jockey: Harrison Shaw
CHICKEN FOR TEA showed a first sign of ability for his new handler when third in a big field over course and distance earlier in the month. That effort should have teed the grey up nicely for another earning run.
Race 5 No1 JUST FINE (Each Way)
Trainer: Sir Michael Stoute – Jockey: Ryan Moore
JUST FINE travelled well for a long way in the King George V Handicap at Royal Ascot. The run was better than his finishing position of tenth indicates, and this diminutive gelding is capable of bouncing back on his first start for a month.
Race 6 No3 SNOWALOT (Nap)
Trainer: James Ferguson – Jockey: Daniel Muscutt
Camelot gelding SNOWALOT was a hugely impressive scorer at Salisbury and has looked an altogether better performer since going handicapping. This strong stayer should greatly appreciate the stiff uphill finish and can defy a 5lb penalty.
Race 5 No1 SILENT ESCAPE (Nap)
Trainer: Saeed Bin Suroor – Jockey: Pat Cosgrave
New Approach filly SILENT ESCAPE can preserve her unbeaten record and complete a fine hat-trick. Following wins at Wolverhampton and Newcastle, she now debuts on turf but has worked well on that surface in Newmarket.
Race 6 No5 GRANARY QUEEN
Trainer: Eve Johnson Houghton – Jockey: David Probert
GRANARY QUEEN has failed to menace in only two of her six outings this year and showed with an eye taking earning run at Chepstow last time that she’s on the cusp of a winning breakthrough.
