Dukedom - 16:40 Haydock
Smart Stat: 20%#John & Thady Gosden's strike rate with horses running in races between 7f and up to 10f
Dukedom had seemingly been showing all the right signs at home as he started odds on for his debut, but was too green to do himself justice, and he failed to improve as expected on his second start. He was a bit better behaved at Newmarket last time and returned to something like his debut form and he may be seen to better effect now handicapping for top connections.
Jaramillo - 17:00 Newcastle
Smart Stat: 24% - Roger Varian's strike rate at NEWCASTLE since the start of the 2017 season
Jaramillo is clearly not one of Roger Varian's leading lights, but he does possess ability, and his sole run on tapeta was a promising one at Wolverhampton. He didn't run too badly at Ripon last time despite finishing last of five and he returns from a short break from a career-low mark. Varian has his string in good order and it wouldn't be a surprise were he to get back on the up returned to an artificial surface.
Between The Sheets - 18:30 Newcastle
Smart Stat: £13.69 - Michael Bell's profit to a £1 level stake with horses being stepped up in trip
Between The Sheets remains a maiden and needs to bounce back from a poor run at Wolverhampton last time, but on the pick of her efforts she looks fairly treated and the step up in trip should be in her favour. She's out of a fairly useful mare who stayed a mile and Michael Bell can also boast a good record when stepping horses up in trip.
