2.15: ASHRAAKAT is already being quoted at 33-1 for next year's 1,000 Guineas even before she sees a racecourse and is reported to be impressing John Dunlop on the Arundel gallops. Shuhrah is held in similarly high regard and this race should have an important bearing on betting for next year's Classics.

2.45: With Bolivar and Burnt Offering better suited by give in the ground, Paradise Navy running below his best, Salska flattered by her recent win in a slowly-run race, Spy Knoll handicapped on his potential rather than the limited amount that he has achieved and Benjamins Law unproven over the trip, this is best left to SHINING DANCER, who was staying on well over 1m 6f at Sandown last time.

3.15: Several of these sprinters arrive here at the top of their form and MOON STRIKE, who seems to be improving at the age of seven, is only marginally preferred to Crofters Ceilidh, Twice As Sharp and Blessingindisguise.

3.50: SONG OF FREEDOM is only lightly raced and is just the type to progress further after comfortably winning a very competitive maiden race at Pontefract last time.
