12.00 – BetMGM: It’s Showtime Hands And Heels Apprentice Handicap – 1m

MYKONOS ST JOHN hasn’t won since February last year, but that last win came off an 11Ib higher mark, and he has come close several times since. From the same mark as when second over C&D last time, he could go one better. GIRL FROM ITALY finished a good second when trying to win for a third consecutive time when last spotted at Wolverhampton and must be feared, while DAVID’S DIVA is eased in grade on her handicap debut.

Tips: MYKONOS ST JOHN, GIRL FROM ITALY, DAVID’S DIVA

12.30 – Boost Your Acca At BetMGM/EBF Restricted Maiden Stakes – 1m

Tom Clover’s BIG ZOU made a promising start to his career when he finished fourth at Chelmsford, and with that experience to draw upon, he is open to improvement and could be tough to beat. BATTLE OF OMDURMAN improved markedly from his debut eighth when he finished third at Bath. That form has worked out well, with the fourth-place horse winning since, so Ollie Sangster’s charge should be thereabouts.

Tips: BIG ZOU, BATTLE OF OMDURMAN

13.00 – Boost Your Acca At BetMGM/EBF Restricted Maiden Stakes – 1m

The Andrew Balding-trained BELCAMO should be hard to beat. He caught the eye from an unpromising position when flying at the finish to take third on his debut at Kempton and is a sure-fire improver on the evidence of that display. He is drawn handily in stall 1 and should be difficult to keep out of the frame under Oisin Murphy.

Tips: BELCAMO 

13.30 – Best Racing Odds Guaranteed At BetMGM Nursery – 5f

RELENTLESS WARRIOR was well beaten in the Super Sprint at Newbury, but will find this a lot easier and makes his handicap debut off a realistic mark. ROGUE ROSIE has knocked on the door several times for this stable, and although she has yet to succeed, her form is working out well, and her third at Wolverhampton in September reads well. She should be competitive.

Tips: RELENTLESS WARRIOR, ROGUE ROSIE

14.05 – BetUK. Home Of The Acca-Fenwa Handicap – 1m2f

ROMILDA ran an eye-catching race when third at Wolverhampton three weeks ago and should be able to build on that here. She’s a big player with a handy weight due to her rider claiming 7Ib. Light Speed is the biggest danger after two wins, but the weight differential could see William Haggas’ participant come out on top this time. The hat-trick seeking LIGHT SPEED can still be included though.

Tips: ROMILDA, LIGHT SPEED

14.35 – BetUK. It’s Where The UK Bets Handicap – 1m2f

VILLABOLOS has a good record at this course, and while she has been below par in her latest three starts, she is only 1Ib higher than when scoring over C&D back in March earlier this year. She’s majorly respected, while THE CONQUEROR stepped up from previous efforts when fifth at Chelmsford last time and is well-handicapped on the pick of his form.

Tips: VILLALOBOS, THE CONQUEROR
