18.20 Carlisle - Quantum Field
David Brown has his horses in good form and he's had 2 winners in nurseries from 4 runners over past 2 weeks. He also does well here at Carlisle with 2yos (2 wins from 8 runners, level stakes profit of 6.62 over past 5 seasons). Quantum Fields is a half sister to Neck N Neck, a multiple graded stakes winner in USA. Quantum Field improved for first 2 starts to finish 3rd in a 7F Redcar maiden, just 1 length behind the runner-up, Kings Gift, who won next time and a half clear ahead of Sofia's Rock, who was a close 2nd next time and is now rated 77. Quantum Field had her first run in a nursery over 7F at Haydock last time off 66 but she clearly didn't run her race, after racing too keenly. She has been dropped 2lbs to a mark of 64 and this looks a much weaker race, so she could bounce back and run a big race.

18.45 Ripon - Apricot Sky
Apricot Sky has won on its one start here at Ripon, over this CD in June off 72 by 2 lengths from Orient Class, who has gained 2 wins and a second from 3 runs since. Apricot Sky struggled on next start when slowly away in a 5F Hamilton handicap off 78, racing too keenly before fading late on. He ran a better race in a 5F Beverley handicap next time when beaten just over 2 lengths and 2nd, 4th & 6th from the race have won since. Apricot Sky's last 4 wins have come over 5F, and the move up to 6F at York in July didn't appear to suit. He put in his best effort since his CD win last time out when 2nd in a 5F Thirsk handicap off today's mark of 76 and form of the run was franked by 3rd, Seamster, who won next time and was then 2nd off a 6lb higher mark on latest run. Apricot Sky is stepping up in class today but conditions should suit and he could run well at a big price.

16.30 Goodwood - Zonderland
3yos have won 6 of the last 8 runnings of the Celebration Mile and Clive Cox won the race with a 3yo last year. Zonderland's 2 runs on good or firmer in Britain this year have been wins in the 1M listed Heron Stakes and in the group 3 Sovereign Stakes at Salisbury last time, by 2 lengths. In past 10 years, record of Sovereign Stakes reads 5131 (2-1-4) and 3 of the 6 winners aged 3 to win this in past 10 years ran in the 2000 Guineas, a race in which Zonderland finished 6th. Frankie Dettori takes the ride for first time and on trends, Zonderland looks the one to beat.

14.30 Brighton - Waseem Faris
Waseem Faris has been contesting higher class races and may be suited by dropping back down to class 4. His last 4 runs in class 4 have been 3 wins and a 3rd and he won this race last year off 78. His last wins came in a 5F Nottingham class 4 handicap off 84 in October. He has yet to win this year but he has run some big races, placing in a 5F Goodwood class 3 handicap off 88 and also placing in a class 2 handicap at the Epsom Derby meeting off 87. He disappointed in a 5F class 2 handicap at Newmarket last time but he has now been unplaced on all 4 runs at Newmarket, whereas he has 2 wins and 1 second from 3 previous runs at Brighton and is 2 from 2 over this CD. He's down to his lowest mark since his last win and back down in class 4, he may be able to return to winning ways.

15.40 York - Wings Of Desire
Wings Of Desire has proven himself here at York and could be the value in the Juddmonte. Following a win in a 1M 4F Wolverhampton maiden, he took the Dante over this CD on good to firm from Deauville, who won grade 1 in the USA next time. He found 1M 4F on good to soft stretching his stamina in the Derby when still a fine 4th. The faster ground suited him last time in the King George when beaten a length into 2nd to Highland Reel. The drop back to 1M 2F should suit today and, with this being only his sixth start, there is still more improvement to come from him. The only previous Pivotal colt to run in this was Farhh, 2nd to Frankel in 2012, and the last 3 Dante winners to run in this have gained 1 win and 2 seconds. Wings Of Desire could prove the value in this year's Juddmonte International.

14.45 Pontefract - Busy Street
Busy Street is by multiple group 1 winner, Champs Elysee, and is a half brother to group 2 winner, Canticum, and also to Uphold, who won several handicaps off marks in the 80's. Busy Street improved for debut run to win a 1M 4F Southwell maiden by 4 lengths under Neil Fairly. He was 2nd in a couple of handicaps off 75 and 77 on first 2 start this year and then ran with credit in a 1M 4F York handicap, when 7th of 20 off 81. Form of that run is working out. He was a bit disappointing on first run here at Pontefract, finishing 4th of 9 in a class 4 handicap over this CD in May but that was his third run in less than 40 days and he may have been feeling. The winner also came out and won off 7lbs higher next time, while the 5th has also won a Newmarket handicap since. Busy Street has dropped 1lb to 79 and Alan Swinbank has won this handicap in 2012 & 2014. Neil Fairley, who has been on board just once before for the maiden win, is back on again today.

15.55 Ripon - Snap Shots
Snap Shot's record here at Ripon reads 221 (1-2-3) and he was 2nd in a handicap over this CD off 93 in August last year. He struggled towards the end of 2015 and also in first 3 runs of 2016, but he bounced back to form when winning a 6F Haydock handicap off 85 in May. He found the drop to 5F too sharp on next 2 runs but he gained another win over this trip when landing a handicap over this CD off 90 last time. He has been raised to a mark of 94, but he has proven he is capable off marks around this level and Richard Kingscote has been on him for 3 of his 4 wins. Tom Dascombe's last 2 runners both won and Snap Shots appears to have a good draw in stall 7, with 6 of last 10 winners coming from stalls 7 to 11.

16.05 Curragh - Fort Del Oro
Fort Del Oro won her maiden over this CD in June last year and then ran in this race, on only her third ever start, finishing a 2 length 3rd. She ended last season with a win in a listed race over this CD no good ground. She won first time out in a 5F listed race at Naas before disappointing in the group 2 Greenlands Stakes here on yielding to soft, however ground would not have suited. She bounced back to form by finishing 2nd on good to firm in the Ballyogan Stakes here, beaten 3 lengths by Divine, who was beaten a head in the Hackwood Stakes last month. The 4th, Diamond Fields, was 2nd in the Sandringham next time, while the 5th, Marsha, won listed race on next 2 starts. Fort Del Oro gained her fourth win from 9 starts last time in a 6F Naas listed contest and looks capable of giving Edward Lynam a second win in this race in past 4 years.

20.20 Lingfield - Great Expectations
Great Expectations has 2 wins and a short head seconds from 6 runs on the turf at Lingfield. He won this race last year off a mark of 65 and followed up the following month with a win at Brighton over 6F off 69. He has struggled somewhat since but as a result has now dropped down to a career low turf mark of 63. Dougie Costello takes the ride for first time and he is 2 from 8 when riding for John Jenkins, showing a healthy level stakes profit. This is clearly a track Great Expectations enjoys and he looks a solid each way bet.

15.10 Yarmouth - Pacharana
Pacharana has a lovely breeding profile, being by Oasis Dream and out of a Montjeu mare, Cascata, who is a full sister to St Nicholas Abbey. She is a full sister to 91-rated Richard Of Yorke. She struggled on her 2 runs as a 2yo but showed a bit more on first 2 runs at 3, though both efforts came on softer ground. She seemed to enjoy her first try on firmer than good ground last time when winning a handicap over this CD off 57, by over a length from Hope Is High, who won off 2lbs higher next time. Pacharana has only gone 5lbs for the win and with conditions likely to suit again, she should go close for Jamie Spencer, who is 1 from 1 on board.
