13:50 Matchbook Betting Exchange Handicap - York
The lightly-raced COWBOY SOLDIER took his form to another level when beating a subsequent winner at Kempton on return last month, setting up a potentially lucrative campaign in good 5f handicaps. Saaheq is another sprinter on an upward curve and rates a big threat, while Powerallied makes each-way appeal having caught the eye on his comeback at Pontefract.
14:10 Byerley Stud EBF Fillies' Handicap - Salisbury
BELLA VITA did everything right when winning a Lingfield maiden earlier this month and a mark of 77 looks manageable on her handicap debut. Baba Ghanouj could be excused her Ascot run and she may improve for this trip. Sufficient is another worthy of consideration on the back of her promising yet unlucky reappearance at this course last month.
14:25 Al Basti Equiworld Dubai Middleton Fillies' Stakes (Group 2) - York
LAH TI DAR was most impressive when winning a listed event here last season and had excuses when beaten favourite in the St Leger at Doncaster and the Fillies And Mares at Ascot. She can resume winning ways back down in class on return before having another crack at the highest level. Of her rivals, Rawdaa arguably has the most potential and can follow the selection home.
15:00 Al Basti Equiworld Dubai Dante Stakes (Group 2) - York
TOO DARN HOT completed the perfect 2-y-o season with the best Dewhurst performance since the legendary Frankel in 2010 and remains a colt with huge potential given he's bred to be a middle-distance 3-y-o. Line of Duty is the other Group 1 winner in the field having won the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf, while it didn't take long for Japan to reach a smart level last season.
15:35 Matchbook Betting Podcast Hambleton Handicap - York
HORTZADAR has impressed since joining David O'Meara from France, and there's a good chance he could still be ahead of the assessor, so despite a wide draw, he receives the narrow vote. Mutafani concedes race fitness but he should go on improving now venturing into handicaps. Beringer and Escobar are others who make appeal.
