14:00 - Ladbrokes Bet 5 Get 20 Maiden Auction Stakes

GOLD BERE was a handy fourth at the Glorious meeting here on debut and that course experience should help George Baker's youngster as he steps up in trip this time. Richard Hannon saddles two, with Al Wafi expected to confirm Newbury form with stablemate Aspire Tower. Any market support for newcomers Debbonair and Lariat should also be noted, and the latter is related to multiple winners.

Top Tip: GOLD BERE (9)
Watch out for: AL WAFI (5)

14:30 - Chichester City Selling Stakes

DEMURRER made all at Lingfield before a modest effort at Pontefract, but this sort of test should suit Michael Bell's charge better and he is reunited with the in-form Oisin Murphy. The three-year-old can account for Phoenician Star, who wasn't disgraced despite failing to beat anything home in a tactical affair at Chepstow. Barnay wears a first-time visor and also enters the reckoning.

Top Tip: DEMURRER (1)
Watch out for: PHOENICIAN STAR (6)

15:00 - Ladbrokes Handicap

A very competitive contest but marginal preference is for HAMLUL, who won in the style of a progressive colt on his handicap debut at Beverley. A 7lb rise in the ratings will make life harder for him but he should have more improvement left to come. Knight Errant and Jack Regan have to be respected after they fought out the finish of a race at Sandown recently, while Beringer and Jazeel complete the shortlist.

Top Tip: HAMLUL (4)
Watch out for: KNIGHT ERRANT (7)

15:35 - Goodwood Amateur Riders' Handicap

Mr Red Clubs is 4lb lower than when landing this contest 12 months ago and could interest each-way punters at a price, though preference is for BALMORAL CASTLE. A four-time C&D winner, most recently off 6lb higher, he served notice a return to winning ways was imminent when beaten a length into third over 1m2f at Windsor. Others to consider are recent Chester scorer Miss Sheridan and Ebbisham, who responded well to the refitting of cheekpieces at Nottingham.

Watch out for: MR RED CLUBS (5)

16:10 - Weatherbys Racing Bank Supreme Stakes (Group 3)

Breton Rock and DREAM OF DREAMS set the standard following their placed efforts in the Group 2 Hungerford Stakes at Newbury eight days ago. The latter finished a place in front of his older rival on that occasion and he may confirm that form. Raid did not appear to get home in the 2000 Guineas but his previous form in the Greenham gives him a big chance in a race at this level.

Watch out for: BRETON ROCK (1)

16:45 - Ladbrokes Home Of The Odds Boost Fillies' Handicap

GIVING GLANCES has looked like a different animal since switching to this distance and could have even more to offer for Alan King. A 6lb rise for his second successive win at Leicester last time doesn't look too harsh, and the three-year-old can account for Klassique, who only won in workmanlike fashion in maiden company last month. Rococo can be forgiven a poor run at Newbury last time when failing to beat a single rival home.

Watch out for: KLASSIQUE (6)

17:20 - Sussex Roof Garden Handicap

Ayr scorer DR DORO wasn't beaten far over six furlongs when attempting to follow up at Lingfield, and the drop back to five furlongs is a positive here off the same mark. Chepstow winner Broadhaven Honey could follow up from a 5lb higher rating, with dual 2018 winner Roundabout Magic back down to his last winning figure. Flowing Clarets and Firenze Rosa give John Bridger a useful hand and any market support for either should be noted.

Top Tip: DR DORO (4)
Watch out for: BROADHAVEN HONEY (3)

17:50 - Silk Series Lady Riders' Handicap

GEETANJALI finished strongly over 1m2f at Chepstow last time and could improve for this stiffer test. In receipt of weight-for-age, Michael Bell's charge could take all the beating. Paddy A is a potential improver now fitted with first-time blinkers and could feasibly get back on the winning trail, though the main danger to the selection may be recent 1m2f Epsom second Jumping Jack, for whom this longer trip could be ideal.

Watch out for: JUMPING JACK (6)
