LTO Selection:

13:40 Bath Maiden (Class 5) 10f Race Class Flow

The chart reads from right to left to today's class 5 race.

MISS DOLLY ROCKER filled the runner-up berth at Lingfield over a mile in December, when just touched off by a short head. The daughter of Frontiersman is bred to get further and can unlock the improvement needed to shed her maiden tag at the fifth time of asking. The main threat might be Ajyad, who took a step forward when upped to this distance last time, while any market support for Ala Kaifi should be noted.

AJYAD shaped well when runner-up at Newcastle and is fancied to go one better here with further progress on the cards for this daughter of Australia. Miss Dolly Rocker has the form to have a big say too and is feared most, although a market move for newcomer Ala Kaifi would put a slightly different slant on things.

The suggestion is AL TARFA, who came on plenty on his second start and is selected in the hope that he can settle better this time.

Dam tough 5f-6f winner (RPR 88), sister to useful 6f-7f winner Harwoods Volante.
LTO Selection:

13:50 Goodwood Stakes (Class 4) 6f Race Class Flow

The chart reads from right to left to today's class 4 race.

The market will be a key guide but marginal preference is for PACKARD, who cost 150,000 euros as a yearling and the son of Mehmas is closely related to plenty of two-year-old winners. Double Jump is also very interesting given that his dam won at Listed level early in her juvenile career and Clive Cox's colt was another expensive purchase at 180,000gns. Others to note are Ambushed, Barnwell Boy and Moyet.

BATED BREEZE ran to just a modest level when mid-field here on debut 3 weeks ago but he showed plenty to work on and can put that experience to good use up against newcomers. Double Jump's sales price doubled from foal to yearling so is one to note, while Packard looks a likely type for Richard Hannon.

The market should be enlightening. As things stand, PACKARD looks a likely type with his owner's 2yos going great guns.

Spirit Of The Bay

8.5/1(-13%)
(5) Spirit Of The Bay 8.5/1, It's now 11 runs since her last win in 2021 but she posted a fair fourth of 7 in handicap at Bath (8f, soft) 25 days ago. Can give a good account now back up in trip.
Fair run over 1m at Bath this month and she's one to consider now back up in distance.
2
2nd (3) Maghlaak (1.1/1 +37%)
Maghlaak

1.1/1(+37%)
(3) Maghlaak 1.1/1, Made a promising start to his career with wins in novices at Kempton and Goodwood last summer and resumed from 8 months off with an encouraging third of 8 in handicap at Goodwood (9.9f, heavy) 20 days ago, clear of rest. Big shout off an unchanged mark.
2-3 in 3yo campaign and reappeared with solid 3rd; open to further improvement; respected.

Thunder Max

7.5/1(+17%)
(7) Thunder Max 7.5/1, Yet to add to his debut success but he's largely run well in handicaps since. Beat only one in first-time blinkers at Chester 15 days ago though so he needs to get back on track.
Reappeared with encouraging fourth over C&D and soft ground may not have suited at Chester.

4th (1) Tamarama (4/1 -14%)
Tamarama

4/1(-14%)
(1) Tamarama 4/1, Ended her time with Charlie Hills with a 10f Chelmsford win in October but she came in last of 7 for her new trainer in handicap at Windsor (10f, heavy) 18 days ago. Worth another chance.
Tailed off on stable debut but on soft ground; three wins last year and not written off.

Bizarre Law

7/1(-56%)
(4) Bizarre Law 7/1, Went backwards from his reappearance third when sixth of 8 in handicap at Kempton (12f) 23 days ago. Others more persuasive.
Reappeared with close third at Kempton but below par there subsequently.
6th
6th (2) Noble Anthem (22/1 -83%)
Noble Anthem

22/1(-83%)
(2) Noble Anthem 22/1, 2 wins from 5 runs last year and ended 2022 with two efforts in the frame over hurdles. Respected on his return.
On a competitive mark on his best form but returns from a break with something to prove.
7th
7th (6) Rogue Rocket (12/1 +14%)
Rogue Rocket

12/1(+14%)
(6) Rogue Rocket 12/1, Winner at Salisbury last July. Run best ignored (stumbled badly early) when last of 11 in handicap at Southwell (11.1f) 7 months ago. Not discounted on his return.
Disappointing on final two starts last season but perhaps a break will have helped.
LTO Selection:

14:05 Haydock Handicap (Class 4) 10f Race Class Flow

The chart reads from right to left to today's class 4 race.

The unexposed MAGHLAAK shaped well enough behind a couple of rivals proven in testing conditions at Goodwood on his return and having progressed well last term, he can resume that forward momentum. Tamarama failed to fire at Windsor on her first appearance for Ralph Beckett, pulling too hard in conditions softer than ideal, but can be given another chance on a sounder surface. Spirit Of The Bay improved on her second start of the year and appears to be on an attractive mark.

MAGHLAAK was a dual winner last season and signalled he's ready to go in again when a promising reappearance third at Goodwood. Spirit of The Bay is on a lengthy losing run but should benefit from this step up in distance and is feared most off an easing mark, with Tamarama worth considering too.

The Charlie Hills-trained MAGHLAAK (nap) could be a lightly raced 4yo to follow and he is the selection ahead of Thunder Max.

(7) Jimmy Mark 5.5/1, Lightly-raced maiden. 33/1, sixth of 12 in handicap at Salisbury (9.9f, good to soft) 22 days ago, headway out wide over 2f out and keeping on. That was his best effort yet but he'll need to find further progress to get involved here.
Modest form in 5 starts but this isn't overly competitive & it's still early days for him.

Pink Lily

2/1(-6%)
(3) Pink Lily 2/1, 1 win from 2 runs this year. 6/1, career best when winning 14-runner handicap at this C&D (good to firm) 9 days ago, cosily. Claims once more under a penalty.
Won well over C&D last week and leading claims despite her 6lb penalty.

Star Sprite

2.5/1(+50%)
(4) Star Sprite 2.5/1, Lightly-raced maiden. Last of 4 in handicap (2/1) at Southwell (12.1f) 47 days ago, not seeing things out over the marked longer trip on back of 7 months off. This ought to reveal more having first crack at 10f.
Hasn't lived up to market expectation on a couple of occasions; flashed tail latest.

4th (1) Man Made Of Smoke (25/1 -108%)
Man Made Of Smoke

25/1(-108%)
(1) Man Made Of Smoke 25/1, Belatedly shed maiden tag at Wolverhampton (9.5f) at the start of the month but not in same form turned out under a penalty when last of 6 over that trip/track 14 days ago. Blinkers replace usual visor back on turf but he may find a couple too good.
21st time lucky when winning at Wolverhampton this month; less good last time; needs more.

Modest form to date; cheekpieces left off today; not bred to relish this longer trip.

1m AW winner in January but not progressing and behind Pink Lily over C&D last week.
LTO Selection:

14:15 Bath Handicap (Class 6) 10f Race Class Flow

The chart reads from right to left to today's class 6 race.

FULLFORWARD (second) had Pink Lily (third) behind at Salisbury on his latest outing and is now 4lb better off at the weights, as the latter went on to strike over this course and distance. If he is able to reproduce that level of form, the son of Tamayuz could prove very tough to beat. Another to consider is Star Sprite, who remains unexposed and was not beaten far on her handicap debut.

A winner over 1m on his final start as a juvenile, FULLFORWARD ran his best race yet for his new yard when runner-up over this sort of trip at Salisbury 3 weeks ago (Pink Lily placed third) and he can confirm the promise of that run and come out on top. The latter-named, a subsequent winner over C&D 9 days ago, rates a big threat however, ahead of Star Sprite.

Pink Lily won well over C&D last week but she may have to give best to FULLFORWARD at these weights.

May bounce back if he takes well to first-time blinkers.

4th (5) Man Of Eden (2.5/1 +17%)
Man Of Eden

2.5/1(+17%)

Failed to fully settle when sixth in 1¼m Newmarket handicap back from a break but benefited from the drop back in trip when second to a big improver over C&D last time. Shortlisted.
Finished nicely for second in similar event over C&D three weeks ago.
5th
5th (9) Tiger Bay (25/1 -108%)

(9) Tiger Bay 25/1, Reached the frame over 6f/7f at Wolverhampton at the end of 2022 and improved to get off the mark at Lingfield (7f, AW) last month, having run of race. Into handicaps now and more required.
Likely player if transferring her AW progress to turf.
6th
6th (8) Woodstock (6/1 +45%)
Woodstock

6/1(+45%)
(8) Woodstock 6/1, Built on debut second when comfortably landing short odds at Chelmsford and didn't need to improve again to double his tally at Kempton in March. Seemed unsuited by very testing underfoot conditions tackling turf for the first time at Nottingham last time, so well worth another chance.
Progressive on AW; possibly unsuited by soft ground on turf debut.
7th

Dream Of Mischief

Matched that form when third on nursery debut at York on final outing and is likely to do better still this season given his physique. Has been gelded since last seen. Interesting.

Not solid on turf form but the return to 1m may suit.

Come Together

(2) Come Together 5/1, Showed much improved form when edging out a promising newcomer close home in 11-runner minor event at Wolverhampton (8.6f) in November. Has a 6-month absence to overcome but looks on a good mark for handicap debut.
Looks the type to improve further and do well in handicaps.
LTO Selection:

14:25 Goodwood Handicap (Class 4) 8f Race Class Flow

The chart reads from right to left to today's class 4 race.

This is an open looking handicap and a tentative nod goes to MAN OF EDEN, who has a fitness edge over potentially his biggest dangers. Harry and Roger Charlton's charge was a good second over C&D last time and he can go close again, despite a 2lb rise. Come Together was successful over the extended mile at Wolverhampton but has been off the track since November, while John Chard Vc must also overcome an absence from the track.

COME TOGETHER looks to have got into handicaps on a good mark based on his win at Wolverhampton in November, so he's an appealing candidate, especially with the prospect of more to come. Man of Eden ran well behind a big improver over C&D on his most recent outing and is feared most, while Woodstock and John Chard Vc are others who enter calculations.

On the back of his good second over C&D three weeks ago, MAN OF EDEN could well go one better. Sudden Ambush is second choice.

(8) Patasola 50/1, Twice-raced filly who still looked in need of the experience when fourth of 6 in maiden (20/1) at Ripon (5f, heavy) 14 days ago, pushed along before halfway and one paced. Handicaps likely to be more her bag in due course.
Ties in with stablemate Lady Dandylion on Ripon running.

Showed ability when fourth in 11-runner Windsor novice (5f) on debut in April, kicking on over 2f out and vulnerable late on. Sound claims with progress anticipated.

Down the field at Goodwood; others preferred.
LTO Selection:

14:40 Haydock Maiden (Class 2) 6f Race Class Flow

The chart reads from right to left to today's class 2 race.

Any market confidence behind the George Boughey-trained newcomer Chic Colombine would be significant, but ALWAYS LOVE YOU shaped with plenty of promise when fourth at Windsor. The form of that race has worked out well, with the winner going in again since, while the second went close in Listed company at York last week. China Trade might prefer further than this in time but is sure to be fit and ready to go on debut.

ALWAYS LOVE YOU clearly knew her job and showed bright speed before proving vulnerable late in the day when fourth on debut in a Windsor novice (5f) last month. Very much the type to improve, she can build on that run and make it second time lucky. Chic Colombine and China Trade are a couple of appealing newcomers and may emerge as the lead threats.

The standard is set by ALWAYS LOVE YOU. Nicely bred newcomer China Trade is second choice.

LTO Selection:

14:50 Bath Stakes (Class 5) 5f Race Class Flow

The chart reads from right to left to today's class 5 race.

Succession made all last time over course and distance but he now has to carry a 7lb penalty, which could open the door for the Richard Hannon-trained MASHADI. The son of Blue Point was just touched off on his second career start at York and he can score here. The Liegeman, who is a full-brother to the multiple Group 1 winner The Tin Man, should be monitored in the betting.

Mashadi has finished runner-up on both outings so far and he may find one too strong again here in the shape of MAYO NEIGHS, who has plenty of speed in his pedigree and confidence would only heighten should market support arrive. Recent C&D winner Succession can fight out third spot with debutant The Liegeman.

Dual silver medallist MASHADI (nap) is taken to go one better. Succession and newcomer The Liegeman are feared most.

LTO Selection:

15:00 Goodwood Listed (Class 1) 10f Race Class Flow

The chart reads from right to left to today's class 1 race.

It's difficult to rule any of these out with improvement on the cards, so only a tentative vote can go to ARAMINTA. It's not often Henry Candy sends out a winning debutant, so it was all the more striking when she cruised to success at Newbury last month. She then lost nothing in defeat when third over 1m here, and the step up in trip can see her in an even better light. Heavenly Breath and Veil Of Shadows are feared most, while Inner Space heads the remainder.

ARAMINTA acquitted herself well against a couple of older, more experienced rivals when a close third in a 1m course listed event 3 weeks ago and can build on that now stepping up to 1¼m. Veil of Shadows, Blue Missile and Understated look very useful prospects for good stables and head the many possible dangers in an open-looking listed event.

Although she lacks a Ribblesdale entry, VEIL OF SHADOWS looks sure to improve for going this far after her good run at Ascot.

LTO Selection:

15:15 Haydock Listed (Class 1) 6f Race Class Flow

The chart reads from right to left to today's class 1 race.

GALE FORCE MAYA has finished behind her stablemate Azure Blue on her last two starts but that filly is now a Group 2 winner and with this faster surface sure to suit, the Michael Dods-trained seven-year-old gets the vote. Get Ahead has only her second try over this trip after competing over the minimum distance for most of her career, and remains of interest. Makarova was ahead of the selection at Newmarket and further improvement is possible with that run now under her belt.

GALE FORCE MAYA showed smart form when winning twice at this level last season and this looks another good opportunity for her to add to her tally under a penalty back on ground which should prove more suitable. Get Ahead is feared most back down in class, with Kape Moss best of the others.

Gale Force Maya holds leading form claims but this could go to the 3yo SWEET HARMONY, who has shown sprinting potential over 7f.

Lightly raced but she is in a competitive race after her absence and others are stronger.
LTO Selection:

15:25 Bath Handicap (Class 5) 5.5f Race Class Flow

The chart reads from right to left to today's class 5 race.

COUP DE FORCE was only narrowly denied in a higher grade at Goodwood three weeks ago and the daughter of Lethal Force could be hard to stop off just a 1lb higher mark. Four Adaay is an obvious threat to the selection following her victory at Kempton earlier in the month. Redredrobin does not have to carry a penalty for her win at Salisbury recently and completes the shortlist.

The vote goes to the consistent GRANARY QUEEN, who has done most of her racing at 7f/1m but it could be that sprinting is her game after all. Coup de Force is accorded a great deal of respect on the back of a solid effort in a higher-grade handicap at Goodwood, while last week's Salisbury winner Redredrobin and Four Adaay are others to consider.

Coup De Force ran well in a better race last time but GRANARY QUEEN should get a good pace to aim at and can come out on top.

Productive sort; drop back to 7f looks ideal; 2-2 under William Buick; respected.
LTO Selection:

15:35 Goodwood Handicap (Class 3) 7f Race Class Flow

The chart reads from right to left to today's class 3 race.

A prolific winner in the second half of last season, AUTUMN FESTIVAL bounced back to form with a highly creditable effort in the Thirsk Hunt Cup and the drop in trip is a major plus. The booking of William Buick also catches the eye and he is taken to see off C&D winner Lyndon B and Global Esteem, who has not been beaten far on either start this season. Able Kane and Tintoretto are entitled to be thereabouts as well.

ROPEY GUEST is a consistent sort who shaped as if the run would put him spot on when fifteenth in Ascot's Victoria Cup so he gets the nod off a 2 lb lower mark here. Autumn Festival looked on the way back when fourth at Thirsk last time and is next on the list ahead of C&D winner Lyndon B.

Off a workable mark NIZAAKA could well enhance her strong record in British handicaps. Autumn Festival is feared most.

Open to improvement on this second start but highly likely to need a big step forward.

Dam useful French winner up to 1¼m (2-y-o 9f winner). Bred for longer trips but her yard had a nice 2-y-o winner at Yarmouth earlier in the week. Wears hood.
Newcomer; has a classy pedigree and very interesting for stable whose 2yos are going well.
LTO Selection:

15:50 Haydock Stakes (Class 4) 7f Race Class Flow

The chart reads from right to left to today's class 4 race.

Just the one runner with any racecourse form, and SEVEN ACES may well be able to put that to good use. Slowly away at Sandown, she was never involved until passing one rival late on, but should have learned plenty from the experience. Amazing Winnie may be one of the better newcomers for a stable that has had four juvenile winners on the turf this year. Fallen Angel is another worth watching first time out.

A field of newcomers bar one so the market will likely prove the best guide in this novice, but as things stand FALLEN ANGEL is just about the pick on paper being by Too Darn Hot and out of the May Hill Stakes winner Agnes Stewart. Queen's Reign and Lady of Leisure are a couple of other well-related sorts to keep an eye on.

Some very interesting newcomers and preference is for MARY BAGOT, who is from a fine family. Fallen Angel is second choice.

In good form on AW over the winter; fair claims back on turf after 11 weeks off.
LTO Selection:

16:00 Bath Handicap (Class 6) 6f Race Class Flow

The chart reads from right to left to today's class 6 race.

This represents a considerable drop in class for Flying Barty, who was last seen finishing sixth at Ayr in September. She makes her stable debut for Stuart Williams here and is taken to improve, but ALAINN TU has previous track form and shades the vote following some respectable efforts on the all-weather recently. Mayz makes her handicap bow and is another to consider.

ALAINN TU has shown improved form since her reappearance, getting off the mark at Wolverhampton at the start of the month before not being seen to best effect when third at Lingfield 6 days later. She is taken to resume winning ways at the expense of Miss Moonshine, who can leave her latest run behind following a break. My Delilah completes the shortlist.

Flying Barty could have more to come this year but DESERT ILLUSION is preferred back on fast ground and with headgear tried.

Batemans Bay

9/1(+18%)
(1) Batemans Bay 9/1, Shaped like a stayer on debut and duly improved for the extra 1f when winning Haydock novice. Ran well upped in grade/trip when fourth in Zetland Stakes at Newmarket (10f, good) 7 months ago and further progress in on the cards as his stamina is drawn out (gelded in interim).

From a fine family and looked a colt going places when beating previous winners at Haydock.

Bigger price than Hadrianus when tailed off behind that rival in the Chester Vase.
LTO Selection:

16:10 Goodwood Listed (Class 1) 11f Race Class Flow

The chart reads from right to left to today's class 1 race.

A fairly open contest in which marginal preference lies with KLONDIKE. A game winner over 1m3f at Newbury last month, William Haggas' expensive colt can make it two out of two, and the fact he holds an entry for the King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot suggests he is showing all the right signs at home. Gregory is another who made a successful start to his career and he can give the selection plenty to think about, along with the grade-dropping Batemans Bay.

Normandie Stud Ltd won this contest 12 months ago with Lionel and they could have a star on their hands this time around in the shape of GREGORY, who justified support to see off a trio of previous winners at Haydock last month, and with significant improvement on the cards, he's fancied to take this step up in grade in his stride. Klondike is bred to stay well, so he may emerge as the main threat having also made a winning debut, with Tempered Soul third on the shortlist.

Klondike and Gregory are promising but HADRIANUS sets the standard on his Epsom second and there were excuses at Chester.

LTO Selection:

16:25 Haydock Stakes (Class 5) 8f Race Class Flow

The chart reads from right to left to today's class 5 race.

The formbook points to the chances of Zouzanna, second on both her starts and only beaten a head at Kempton in November. She can go well, as can Ithra, a length second over a furlong shorter at Yarmouth and representing the in-form Alice Haynes stable, but SUB ROSA might have the edge. Fourth behind subsequent Nell Gwyn heroine Mammas Girl at Newmarket on her only start, she was green before running into traffic problems and if she learns from that, she could make up into a decent filly.

ZOUZANNA sets a clear form standard on last autumn's runner-up efforts. Roger Varian's Sub Rosa is open to progress on the back of her Newmarket debut fourth last October so she's second choice ahead of Yarmouth runner-up Ithra.

The Roger Varian-trained SUB ROSA was a promising fourth on her debut at Newmarket last October and is taken to make a winning return.

LTO Selection:

16:30 Bath Handicap (Class 6) 6f Race Class Flow

The chart reads from right to left to today's class 6 race.

ALFRED COVE arrives here following a respectable third on the all-weather at Chelmsford earlier this month and he must enter calculations if transferring that form back onto turf. The Cola Kid finished fourth when short of room late on over course and distance last time out and can give the selection plenty to think about, while Notre Maison also warrants a market check.

Fitter for his reappearance, THE COLA KID ran much better in a change of headgear when fourth at this C&D 9 days ago and he could be ready to take advantage of his reduced mark. Notre Maison shaped as if she'd be better for the run here last time and is feared most, while Suanni isn't one to write off having dropped to a career-low mark.

The suggestion is JACQUELINA, the pick of whose form prior to this handicap debut suggests she may be capable of defying this mark.

Very solid form claims based on his recent win and placed form on turf.

3rd (1) Dream Composer (1.25/1 -4%)
Dream Composer

1.25/1(-4%)
(1) Dream Composer 1.25/1, Goes well at this track and having added to his tally at Newmarket (5f) in April, he posted a career-best when following up over C&D 3 weeks ago, by 1¼ lengths from Angle Land. Assessor applies a little more pressure but big player again in this groove.
Has never been in better form following 5f wins on good to soft at Newmarket and here.

Comes here on the back of creditable in-the-frame efforts in recent weeks but no easy task on from out of the weights on this occasion.
Tends to ply his trade at a lower level and it's not ideal being 7lb out of the weights.

6th (3) Dubai Station (14/1 -40%)
Dubai Station

(3) Dubai Station 14/1, Latest win at Wolverhampton (6f) in March. However, proved rather disappointing on AW since, 22¼ lengths last of 12 in handicap at Kempton (6f) 46 days ago. Bounce back called for returned to turf.
Looked good on the AW in March and excuses since; perhaps better at 6f than 5f.
LTO Selection:

16:45 Goodwood Handicap (Class 3) 5f Race Class Flow

The chart reads from right to left to today's class 3 race.

There was just over a length separating DREAM COMPOSER (first) and Angle Land (second) over course and distance three weeks ago and, although the latter is 5lb better off this time around, the James Evans-trained gelding is taken to confirm those placings. The consistent Lihou has been in great form so far this year, winning four times already, and may give the selection most to think about.

Plenty of these arrive in good form including DREAM COMPOSER who supplemented his Newmarket victory in April with a career-best display over C&D 3 weeks ago and he can complete the hat-trick in his present groove. Lihou and Angle Land may emerge as the lead threats.

A trappy little sprint. DREAM COMPOSER is on a roll and has a particularly solid record at this track, so he may go in again.

LTO Selection:

16:50 Curragh Maiden 6f Race Speed Rating Flow

The chart reads from right to left to today's race.

OCEAN BAROQUE offered plenty of encouragement when filling the runner-up spot over C&D on his racecourse bow earlier this month and the now-gelded son of Caravaggio must hold every chance of building on that. Jakajaro will be worth monitoring closely in the market, having recorded a staying-on sixth over 5f at Cork on his debut, along with Joseph O'Brien's newcomer Absolute Advantage. Others worthy of consideration include Velvet Skies and Nemonte.

OCEAN BAROQUE showed plenty when second over this C&D earlier this month and sets a high standard. Jakajaro shaped like a potential improver when sixth at Cork so is respected, with stablemates Absolute Advantage and Nemonte making most appeal of the newcomers.

Plenty of unknown quantities here, but the logical choice is OCEAN BAROQUE, second to a potentially smart filly on his debut

LTO Selection:

17:00 Haydock Handicap (Class 5) 8f Race Class Flow

The chart reads from right to left to today's class 5 race.

AURORA DAWN is difficult to oppose after she strolled home over 7f at Newmarket and although she has to carry a 6lb penalty for that victory, she will go up another 5lb for future races so she is well-in. Masterpainter is the only distance winner in this field and although not at his best so far this season, blinkers are tried, which may help him focus. Pearly Star is a work in progress and is probably better than she has shown so far.

It's very difficult to look beyond AURORA DAWN, who did the job in good style on her recent turf debut at Newmarket and she's a step ahead of the handicapper under a 6 lb penalty. Perhaps Pearly Star will improve on what she has shown in maiden/novice company now handicapping and Hugo Palmer's charge gets the nod ahead of Pearl Eye for forecast purposes.

This is all about AURORA DAWN, who comfortably won a big-field handicap at Newmarket last Friday and can follow up.

Handy mark after AW losing run; market can help indicate whether a revival is anticipated..
LTO Selection:

17:05 Bath Handicap (Class 6) 6f Race Class Flow

The chart reads from right to left to today's class 6 race.

FAIR AND SQUARE looks to be the most solid proposition here as Ronald Harris' runner shaped well when second of 13 over this track and trip last time. With that in mind, he can go one better today off the same mark. Boarhunt is another who was second on his most recent outing, while Fact Or Fable may benefit from a drop in trip.

Having opened his account at Wolverhampton in February, BOARHUNT quickly left a below-par effort behind when runner-up at Southwell last month and Mick Appleby's 4-y-o could still have more to offer now switched to turf. He can get the better of Fair And Square who returned to form at this C&D 9 days ago, with We're Reunited another to consider.

Preference is for the unexposed BOARHUNT, who should cope with this drop in trip and is open to some improvement.

LTO Selection:

17:10 Limerick Maiden Hurdle 16f Race Speed Rating Flow

The chart reads from right to left to today's race.

LITTLEFOOT makes his hurdling debut and is a good ride for 5lb-claimer Liam McKenna. He caught the eye in bumpers and has taken the runner-up berth three times in that code. He represents a shrewd stable and should be well prepared for hurdling. Ideal De Ciergues gave best in third on the run-in at Killarney, but the feeling is that there is a maiden hurdle in him particularly when you look at the good maiden hurdles he ran in before. Manisanda can play a part. She drops back in trip and get a tongue-strap. My Gaffer and Champagne Mahler are others to consider.

MY GAFFER impressed with the way he went through the race before his stamina began to tell at Punchestown last month, so he's very much of interest now dropping back in trip. Ideal de Ciergues and Littlefoot rate the main threats.

The choice is MY GAFFER, a bumper winner over this trip who ran with great credit in a good novice hurdle at Punchestown last month

Ascot was a write-off but he goes in more new headgear and others appeal more.
LTO Selection:

17:20 Goodwood Handicap (Class 3) 16f Race Class Flow

The chart reads from right to left to today's class 3 race.

Blazeon Five is likely to prove popular after regaining the winning thread at Ascot, and a 2lb rise is unlikely to prevent her from going close once more. A chance, however, is taken on GRANDMASTER FLASH. who wasn't seen to best effect when finishing fourth over 1m6f here earlier in the month, but he offered enough to suggest he can land a race of this nature. Better is also expected from First Emperor now returned to 2m.

MELAKAZ resumed his progress when winning a Chelmsford handicap with ease earlier this month and remains relatively unexposed over staying trips. He can follow up. Yorksea could be well treated returned to the Flat and is feared most, whilst Ehteyat can also make his presence felt.

LTO Selection:

17:25 Curragh Maiden 6f Race Speed Rating Flow

The chart reads from right to left to today's race.

MACHNAMH ran her best race to date when weakening into fourth over a mile at Naas earlier in the month and Jim Bolger's filly could gain a breakthrough success now dropped in distance. Danvers Gold offered plenty of encouragement on her third-placed debut here last June and the daughter of Galileo is feared most. Roaming Star often goes well and is respected, while newcomers Nelda and Ostraka require market checks.

DANVERS GOLD did well under the circumstances when third in a big field here in June and he remains a useful prospect despite his absence. Sibyl Charm is worth another chance to confirm debut promise so is next best ahead of Machnamh, who took a step forward when fourth at Naas.

There is not enough speed on her dam's side to suggest that MRS DANVER, who showed promise over 7f at two, can win over this trip

LTO Selection:

17:30 Haydock Handicap (Class 5) 10f Race Class Flow

The chart reads from right to left to today's class 5 race.

Having been withdrawn at the start when a warm favourite at Nottingham on his intended return in early April, DOG FOX made no mistake when winning at Yarmouth later that month. Ed Dunlop's charge has been raised 4lb for that success but he remains unexposed and is fancied to defy the hike, with further improvement likely. Tremendous Times is one to monitor closely in the betting ahead of his handicap bow, while Wadacre Gomez heads the remainder.

Conditions here will be very different to those under which DOG FOX made a winning reappearance at Yarmouth, but it's likely that the improvement he showed that day was owing to the switch to handicap company, step up in trip and the addition of a hood, not the ground. If that proves to be the case, Ed Dunlop's charge should have little trouble following up here off a 4 lb higher mark. Edmund Ironside and Wadacre Gomez may well emerge as the main dangers.

Soft going may well have been against AL HARGAH in her first two handicaps and today's better ground could help her prevail.

LTO Selection:

17:35 Bath Handicap (Class 6) 8f Race Class Flow

The chart reads from right to left to today's class 6 race.

Mabre was a good winner over 1m at Newbury a week ago and another bold bid can be expected off the same mark, but the nod goes to TRANS MONTANA. Clive Cox's charge was competitive off this mark last season and a line can be put through her run last time after finding trouble in running. Eye Of The Water has raced here three times and has never been out of the first four, so another bold bid can be expected.

MABRE looked as good as ever at Newbury a week ago when gaining a third success of the year and he can score again off the same mark this time around. Heading the list of dangers is Eye of The Water who won over C&D on his penultimate start, while Revolutionary Man isn't one to take lightly if he makes a quick turnaround.

The mare KEEPER'S CHOICE looks interesting having dropped 4lb lower than for the last of her three C&D wins on good and faster ground.

(7) Paddy's Return 5.5/1, Well beaten in 3 novice hurdles at the start of 2021. Of some interest that connections have persevered but betting is perhaps the best guide to expectations now handicap chasing after over 2 years off.
Struggled to get competitive in three slow-ground novice hurdles in early 2021.
LTO Selection:

17:40 Worcester Handicap Chase (Class 5) 16f Race Class Flow

The chart reads from right to left to today's class 5 race.

Runner-up over an extended 2m1f on his latest outing, a 2lb raised mark looks unlikely to stop Opening Bid being in the mix, but he has to shoulder top-weight here so it is easier to side with URABAMBA. The gelded son of Arctic Cosmos finished a fair third over an extended 1m7f at Wincanton last month and the eight-year-old makes plenty of appeal back up in trip. Duke Of Luckley completes the shortlist in a first-time visor.

On the face of things this looks a very good opportunity for OPENING BID to build on last month's Exeter second and get off the mark over fences at the sixth time of asking. Urabamba has been placed in similar company lately and should have a part to play again, while Rocambolas returned to his weak-finishing ways last time but would be a threat to all if reproducing the form he showed when scoring over hurdles last month.

Preference is for OPENING BID, who ran a big race in defeat at Exeter last month and remains well handicapped on hurdling form.

LTO Selection:

17:45 Limerick Maiden Hurdle 19f Race Speed Rating Flow

The chart reads from right to left to today's race.

SPACE TOURIST looks a likely sort for Willie Mullins. Since switching to Mullins, this six-year-old mare won a Tramore bumper and finished a somewhat remote third in a bumper at Cork. That run can be viewed in a better light, though, as the winner has since won a Grade 2 novice hurdle. When she won in Tramore, Mullins commented that he hoped she would win over hurdles. Glendars Mahler won't be lacking in stamina having kept on in third over an extended 2m7f when last seen at Thurles in November. Sligo bumper winner Cash The Cheque has been placed twice over flights. She didn't perform in Tipperary and tries a new trip now. Miss Madeline outran her 125/1 odds when fourth in Tramore and could build upon that.

There's every reason to think SPACE TOURIST can improve on just her second start over hurdles having landed a bumper for Willie Mullins last summer, so she's a straightforward choice to come out on top. Cash The Cheque was a shade underwhelming at Tipperary last time but can provide the main threat if returning to the pick of her form up in trip. Glendars Mahler may prove best of the rest.

Maybe this is the chance for CASH THE CHEQUE to make up for some unlucky bumper defeats. The step up in trip on good ground should suit

LTO Selection:

18:00 Curragh Handicap 8f Race Speed Rating Flow

The chart reads from right to left to today's race.

Bellaphina surprised a few when winning a Limerick maiden in comprehensive style last month, giving the impression this extra furlong could bring out further improvement. However, the vote goes to the hat-trick seeking SNOWCAPPED, who was a most impressive scorer over 7f here earlier this month and can defy the 11lb rise she received for that success. Tea Olive is another who makes appeal having performed well on all three starts so far this season.

Jessica Harrington might be set for a second successive win in this useful fillies' handicap courtesy of the progressive SNOWCAPPED, who was well on top at the finish over 7f here last time and can make light of an 11 lb rise with the return to 1m in her favour. There should be more to come from Impact Warrior now handicapping and she's feared most ahead of Tea Olive, who has done well in lower-grade handicaps this spring.

Limerick maiden winner BELLAPHINA does not look badly treated for her handicap debut and can fly the flag for a small stable

LTO Selection:

18:10 Worcester Handicap Chase (Class 4) 20f Race Class Flow

The chart reads from right to left to today's class 4 race.

BALKO SAINT finished second over an extended 2m4f at Kempton earlier this month and the fact he was headed approaching the last means he could benefit from a slightly shorter test of stamina. The class-dropping Kauto The King is now rated 8lb below his last winning mark and can bounce back to form, while Umndeni also warrants a market check on his return to chasing.

It might be worth taking a chance on COURTLAND bouncing back to form as he's come down a long way in the weights and his stable is going pretty well at present. Balko Saint is second choice ahead of last year's winner Kauto The King.

Granted a sound surface over 2m4f for the first time, COURTLAND is preferred over recent dual chasing runner-up Balko Saint.

LTO Selection:

18:15 Limerick Handicap Hurdle 19f Race Speed Rating Flow

The chart reads from right to left to today's race.

REFLECTIONIST was in dominant form when powering seven lengths clear to score over a similar trip at Punchestown on Tuesday. He runs under a 7lb penalty and remains in the same 80-95 grade. Being by Sea The Stars, he should enjoy this ground. Lilian Bland is running very consistently this year and has been placed in all three runs in handicap hurdles. Connections now decide to claim 7lb off her back and she is weighted to go close. Sixty Seconds showed improvement in third at Clonmel, but that was on soft ground. He is due to step on much better ground here. He does have a fifth place in a Listowel bumper run on good to yielding ground in the book, though.

REFLECTIONIST built on the promise of his stable debut when scoring in comfortable fashion at Punchestown 3 days ago and he looks up to defying a penalty with further improvement on the cards. Dragon's Pass and Lilian Bland are a pair of credible rivals, though.

He may be only 2lb well in with his mandatory penalty, but it is hard to overlook Tuesday's Punchestown winner REFLECTIONIST

(11) Broctune Red 4.5/1, Back to winning ways at Newcastle (10.2f) last month and acquitted himself well in defeat since, latest when close second of 11 in handicap at Beverley (8.4f, good, 9/2) 10 days ago. Can race off same mark and holds strong claims.
Ordinary strike-rate on turf but mainly consistent and ran well at Beverley last month.

(6) One For The Frog 18/1, Off the mark (dead heated) in 6-runner minor event at Wolverhampton (8.6f) 27 days ago. Fairly treated on turf debut and is one for the shortlist.
AW novice winner last time; not fully exposed but enough to prove from draw on turf debut.

LTO Selection:

18:25 Pontefract Handicap (Class 5) 8f Race Class Flow

The chart reads from right to left to today's class 5 race.

This can go the way of BROCTUNE RED, who arrives in excellent form and hasn't finished outside the first two in his last three starts. The slight drop back in trip is another plus, while he is able to compete off a mark 6lb lower than his all-weather figure, and he is preferred to Shimmering Sands and Westernesse, who remains a maiden after 10 starts but has shown promise since joining the David O'Meara stable.

This can go to BROCTUNE RED, who arrives in fine fettle and posted his best effort on turf when runner-up at Beverley last time. One For The Frog and Westernesse rate the principal dangers.

This can go to CLIFFS OF CAPRI, who is on a good mark and he is taken to return to winning ways back on turf in refitted blinkers.

(5) Space Age 10/1, Offered plenty to work on both starts as a juvenile, again displaying fair form when sixth in 20-runner Naas maiden (1m) in November. Gelded ahead of return and he promises to do better again, particularly in handicaps.
Promise in a pair of maidens at 2; gelded since and quicker ground for his return.

Slowly away when 10th on Sunday and drop to 7f isn't certain to help; needs progress.

(7) The Franchise 2.5/1, Twice-raced colt. Twelfth of 19 in valuable minor event (12/1) at this C&D (good to soft) in September, brief headway under 2f out but unable to land a blow. However, debut third here previously was a solid display and feasible to think he can get back on track now.
Beaten 3l on debut; not as good in Goffs Million here but return to faster ground may help.

(4) Lope De Rueda 33/1, Once-raced colt. Sixth of 11 in maiden at Dundalk (7f, 25/1) on debut in January, taking a strong hold in mid-division and ultimately one paced. Did cost plenty as a yearling however, and feasible to think he can do better somewhere down the line.
Green when beaten 6l over 7f in AW maiden on debut; can progress but form has been knocked.

(1) Dream Escape 18/1, Once-raced gelding. Fair form when seventh of 24 in maiden (28/1) at this course (10f, soft) on debut in September, racing freely in lead until weakening final 1f. Could well do better now as a 4-y-o but no easy task conceding weight all round.
Beaten 8l in promising debut here last year and shorter trip may suit.

Son of Where Or When; half-brother to winner over further; best watched on debut.
LTO Selection:

18:30 Curragh Maiden 7f Race Speed Rating Flow

The chart reads from right to left to today's race.

SUBZERO was a clear second behind a progressive type, who has since come out and franked the form in Listed company, last time out over 7f at Leopardstown, and a repeat of that effort would make him very tough to beat. The Franchise is fancied to pose the biggest threat based on the form of his racecourse debut third last August over C&D. Beyond The Steps heads the remainder.

SUBZERO took a step forward on his sole start as a juvenile when runner-up in first-time blinkers (discarded here) at Leopardstown (7.2f) 19 days ago and a repeat may well be enough to see him get off the mark. The Franchise rates the chief danger but market support behind appealing newcomer Beyond The Steps would put a different slant on things.

It was an encouraging return from SUBZERO (nap). With the form boosted and the potential of him coming on for that, he's the one to beat

LTO Selection:

18:40 Worcester NH Flat Race (Class 5) 16f Race Class Flow

The chart reads from right to left to today's class 5 race.

It could pay to side with THE GAMBLER, who bolted up in a point-to-point in Ireland last month when trained by Patrick Turley. She can make both a winning Rules and stable debut, but C&D winner Genovese cannot be dismissed on the back of his most recent third-placed effort at Southwell. Jefe Triunfo is a newcomer of interest, especially when considering the booking of Harry Cobden.

THE GAMBLER changed hands for £20,000 after an easy victory in an Irish point last month and is fancied to make a winning start for new connections on her bumper debut. Chris Gordon's newcomer Jefe Triunfo could emerge as the main threat, especially if the market vibes are positive, with C&D scorer Genovese appealing as the pick of the trio with previous bumper experience and also considered.

The form standard is set by GENOVESE who has the added bonus of being a C&D winner. Jefe Triunfo is second choice.
