17.30 – Betway Casino Handicap – 4f

PASSIONAL was mightily impressive when producing a career-best to score at Chelmsford last week and, with over course-and-distance winning form to his name, he will be tough to beat escaping a penalty.

USTATH also likes it around here with course-and-distance winning form and should make a bold bid under Ben Curtis, while SPIRIT POWER has winning form at this venue and shouldn’t be taken lightly at a double-figure price.

Selections: PASSIONAL, USTATH, SPIRIT POWER

18.00 – Bombardier ‘March To Your Own Drum’ Handicap – 7f

The ten-year-old HOLIDAY MAGIC boasts an excellent record at this course with figures yielding 192232823. Essentially, he’s 5Ib below his last winning mark and his two placed efforts here the last twice suggests he’s about to capitalise on a career-low mark.

THREE C’S is another course specialist to consider in this wide-open event. He represents a stable with a good strike-rate here (7-19, 37%) and should be thereabouts.

Selections: HOLIDAY MAGIC, THREE C’S

18.30 – Bombardier British Hopped Amber Beer Novice Stakes – 7f

It was hard not to be impressed with MEHMENTO when the son of Mehmas returned a convincing nine-length winner over course-and-distance on debut 41 days ago. The bulk of the opposition will need significant improvement to trouble Archie Watson’s charge who is likely to start a short-priced favourite.

Selections: MEHMENTO

19.00 – Betway Handicap – 6f

LORD OBERON looked on good terms with himself when gaining back-to-back victories here last week and given his trainer, Karl Burke, does extremely well at this course in general, his six-year-old may well compete the hat-trick with plenty in his favour.

Roger Fell’s MEDICINE JACK looks very well treated on historical form and his latest fourth at Newcastle from today’s mark suggests he can run another big race with Ben Curtis maintaining the partnership.

Selections: LORD OBERON, MEDICINE JACK

19.30 – Bombardier Handicap – 1m

BOND ANGEL looks good each-way material from a mark that is within her capabilities. She often goes well around here and Jonathan Fisher’s valuable 5Ib claim will count for plenty.

INEXPLICABLE didn’t do a lot wrong when chasing home the useful Craved over six-furlongs here last-time-out and the step up to one-mile promises to suit on handicap debut.

Selections: BOND ANGEL, INEXPLICABLE

20.00 – Read Katie Walsh On Betway Insider Handicap – 1m4f

ARIA ROSE looks poised to go close in search of a four-timer on the back of his recent five-length course-and-distance success and a 5Ib penalty shouldn’t prove impediment towards his chances.

STRAIGHT ASH has continued the good form since winning here in January with a good third last-time-out and it’s notable to see Graham Lee have his only ride on the card.

Selections: ARIA ROSE, STRAIGHT ASH
