1:50 – Stewards’ Dash H’cap – Monsieur Kodi @ 7/1 (BetUK)

Monsieur Kodi has been very constant in all of the races he has run this season. Early on he went over the flying 5, profitable one, and ending shut in his subsequent two begins. Then he stepped as much as six, the place he received his first begin after which got here third in his subsequent two begins. As a consequence, he stays at a mark of 83. Floor isn’t going to be an issue, and it seems like it might get a bit softer with rain anticipated within the morning.

Music Society represents the worth within the race, as he did at York final week. He appears to go on softer than good higher than any floor, and his second at Ayr earlier than York comes into play. A mark of 83 received’t hassle him, with 4 placings on that particular mark for the eight-year-old. He’s been backed in from 18/1 and now stands as a 14/1 shot (BetVictor, Betfred, Boylesports).

3:00 – Lillie Langtry Stakes (Group Two) – Free Wind @ 6/5 (William Hill, BetVictor, Boylesports)

Free Wind is again down in journey and again to softer floor, so already she has positives. Strike by her Ascot run and look again to her York run within the Middleton, and the shape speaks a thousand phrases. Rogue Millennium went to win the Duke of Cambridge (which tied in with Random Harvest’s win final week); Poptronic completed third and received on her subsequent two begins; Keep Alert completed second within the Group One Fairly Polly at The Curragh; and Sea Silk Highway received on her subsequent begin and misplaced to Poptronic. Every thing says she is not going to lose this race.

Nonetheless, Luisa Casarti can lay down a problem to Free Wind as she is a winner at Goodwood. She received the Daisy Warwick in Might, and circumstances not suiting at Haydock she involves Goodwood with a reside probability. She’s 8/1 (888Sport) to trigger an upset, however I’d personally stick her and Free Wind in a reverse forecast.

3:35 – Stewards’ Cup (Heritage H’cap) – Orazio @ 11/2 (William Hill, 888Sport, Betfred)

Orazio backers could have feared a bit bit on Thursday when the draw got here out. He was drawn six and there was a concern that a lot of the tempo could be in direction of’ the stand-side. However after the previous few days, fear not. He seems to be drawn on the paciest a part of the observe, two stalls away from anticipated front-runner Hyperfocus. And with the tender floor anticipated to make it a little bit of a crawl, Orazio can showcase his mud loving expertise and trounce all of them within the huge handicap.

Down the market Chairmanofthebaord may ship one other huge handicap efficiency for the Jack Channon steady, after Johan’s huge win yesterday. He’s been drawn on the opposite aspect of the observe in 19, and will fall into hassle in an space of the observe that doesn’t have a lot tempo.

But when his performances at Hamilton and Newmarket are something to go by, he may have it in him to rally very late on. He does have expertise within the race, operating within the 2020 version of the race, ending fifth off a mark of 95. Three years on he’s off 89 and an excellent each-way worth of 16/1 (Betfred, Boylesports, BetUK)

Proper down the underside are Julie Camacho’s three runners. She’s been dwelling in dreamland with Shaquille, however hasn’t had something to cheer about since. However, Considerably seems her greatest probability, regardless of a six-pound penalty. Floor received’t be an issue and, even with the penalty, is off an excellent mark. There have been loads of big-priced winners, and at 25/1 (William Hill) he could possibly be one too.

2:40 – Chalice Stakes (Listed) – Amusement @ 13/8 (Basic)

There are two horses on this race which might be 4yo+, which suggests 9 out of 11 obtain 10 pound allowances. So it’s greatest to search for enhancing three-year-old fillys on this race, and Amusement seems like one. Having frolicked with Group One fillies in a Group Two race final trip, she’s dropped in school to search out her ft at Listed degree. Donnacha O’Brien sends her over right here, hoping to see Storm Antoni give the July course an excellent soaking for his Amusement.

The easiest of luck!
