Monday August 8.jpg
2.00 British Stallion Studs EBF Maiden Fillies' Stakes (4) 7f50y

Top Rated:
84p 1. HONOURABLE Tony
77p 3. NEPETA Joe Fanning
69 2. MISTRESS VIZ John Mackie P. J. McDonald

Analyst's Verdict:
There was plenty to like about Honourable's opening effort at last month and she's narrowly preferred to the -trained Nepeta, who showed clear ability once the penny dropped on her recent 6f debut and is sure to improve, particularly over this trip.
2.30 Racing UK Handicap (6) 7f50y

Top Rated:
74 6. REINFORCED Michael Dods Connor Beasley
71 9. RIPONIAN Susan Corbett Joey Haynes
70+ 4. NORVILLE L. Smyth Paul Mulrennan

Analyst's Verdict:
Reinforced performed below expectations last time but his reappearance promise is still fresh in the memory and he's taken to get back on track in first-time cheekpieces. Indego Blues might have found the run coming a bit quickly last time and had shaped nicely at prior to that, while Fine Example is an unexposed 3-y-o who should be up to making his presence felt in a race like this.
3.00 Racing UK HD On Sky432 Handicap (5) 1m

Top Rated:
87 5. JAY KAY K. R. Burke Joey Haynes
84+ 8. WAR DEPARTMENT Keith Dalgleish Joe Fanning
84 10. TANAWAR Ruth Carr James Sullivan

Analyst's Verdict:
Lawyer is a classy sort for this level and can add to last week's success with the majority of his 6 lb penalty offset by Adam McNamara's claim. Jay Kay has a fine record at this venue and would be entitled to plenty of respect if turning out again after Saturday, while Mustaqbal is a bit tricky but he does arrive in good nick and this jockey has won on him before.
3.30 Racing UK Profits Returned To Handicap (5) 6f

Top Rated:
89p 5. AFRICAN BLESSING David Barron
86 1. VALLARTA Ruth Carr James Sullivan
85 10. ROCK CANYON Linda Perratt Tom Eaves

Analyst's Verdict:
Vallarta could be the sort to go in again now he's got his head in front and can defy a 2 lb rise for his 7f win here last month. African Blessing is inexperienced for a race of this nature but surely has more to offer for the David Barron team, while In My Place never really threatened on AW at last time but had been in good form on turf prior to that and can bounce back.
4.00 Racing UK In Glorious HD Handicap (6) 5f

Top Rated:
81 2. STRATEGIC HEIGHTS J. J. Feane David Nolan
79 7. GONINODAETHAT Jim Goldie Joe Doyle
78 4. BUNCE Linda Perratt P. J. McDonald

Analyst's Verdict:
The Irish pair Catwilldo and Strategic Heights can fight this out, with the winner taken to follow up given the ease of that success. Lady Wootton could yet pick up a race for Keith Dalgleish and ran well here on Saturday.
4.30 Follow @_UK On Twitter Handicap (3) 1¼m

Top Rated:
100 4. NICHOLAS T Jim Goldie Joe Doyle
98 6. ROBINNIELLY Keith Dalgleish Phillip Makin
97p 9. ARCHIPPOS Philip Kirby Andrew Mullen

Analyst's Verdict:
Robinnielly looked to have a bit in hand when winning at last time and could go in again. Nietzsche, one of a couple who ran at last time, Nicholas T and Archippos are all interesting rivals in what looks a good handicap.
5.00 Racing UK Day Pass Just £10 Handicap (6) (D.I) 1¼m

Top Rated:
77 3. VASTLY Sophie Leech Joe Fanning
75 7. PENELOPE PITSTOP L. Smyth Jack Garritty
74 2. HAYMARKET R. Mike Smith Garry Whillans (5)

Analyst's Verdict:
Penelope Pitstop is more reliable than most and could finally open her account. Tonto's Spirit and Highway Robber are a couple of the other interesting ones.
5.35 Racing UK Day Pass Just £10 Handicap (6) (D.II) 1¼m

Top Rated:
72 8. WOOTTON VALE Tony
71 2. GOLD SHOW (7)
71 7. DEA DIA A. P. Keatley

Analyst's Verdict:
Gold Show's promising young rider can claim his full allowance this time after partnering her to success in an apprentice race at , and the mare can go in again. Saturday's winner Tectonic and Dea Dia both have to be considered also.
