Timeform Shortlist: Pontefract, Sunday August 14
2.15 British Stallion Studs EBF Trevor Woods Memorial Maiden Stakes (4) 5f
Stall 10 isn't ideal for Gokena, but she's bred to be above average and offered enough on debut at Leicester 18 days ago to think she could win a race of this nature. Computable is the form pick, but a tame finishing effort at York raises a few doubts.
2.45 totepool Live Info Download The App Handicap (3) 1½m8y
Regal Monarch remains with potential and could bounce back to winning ways. Mysterial and the returning Busy Street, 1 of 2 runners for Alan Swinbank who won this in 2012 and 2014, are a couple of other interesting contenders.
3.15 Moor Top Farm Shop Hemsworth Handicap (5) 2m1f22y
Rocktherunway is one of a number here who finds winning difficult, but his latest third at Thirsk suggests he may be up to bucking that trend, and he gets the nod to confirm himself on a handy mark. Another Lincolnday and Tuscan Gold can give him most to think about.
3.45 EBF Stallions Highfield Farm Flying Fillies' Stakes (Listed) (1) 6f
A good renewal of this listed prize. Priceless has posted a couple of excellent efforts in strong 3-y-o handicaps on her last 2 starts and is selected to take the step up to listed company in her stride under Silvestre De Sousa. Last month's York 1-3 Ridge Ranger and La Rioja could be the pair to give Clive Cox's filly most to do.
4.20 In Loving Memory of Alison Clark Handicap (3) 1m4y
An open heat in which it might be worth taking a chance on Bathos bouncing back to form. The Mark Johnston-trained colt hasn't fired on recent starts but this is a drop in class and he's now only 1 lb higher than when winning at Goodwood in the spring. His stablemate Huntlaw and Tim Easterby's My Lucille head the dangers.
4.50 totepoolliveinfo.com Maiden Stakes (4) 1m4y
The 3 fillies can dominate, with the superbly-bred Russian Finale taken to build on her promising debut here and open her account from Hilldale and Organza.
5.20 Nova Display Handicap (5) 6f
Hilary J confirmed the improvement shown in her Thirsk success when a fine third at Newcastle last time, and may have more to give after only a handful of starts. She is taken to land an open-looking finale. Mr Orange, Van Gerwen and More Beau make up the shortlist.
