11:15 - Welcomes You Maiden Plate (3-Year-Olds)

TYRIAN and HEY BOY are closely matched on recent form. Both performed well after gelding last time and should have more to offer. GALLAGHER showed pace then tired over further last time so could be better suited to this trip. FLYING ARROW has been disappointing but has scope to improve. Newcomers GIVE ME DYNAMITE and VIA SALARIA are by top sires out of Grade 1 winners. Watch!

Top Tip: HEY BOY (1)
Watch out for: TYRIAN (2)

11:50 - Tab Telebet 0861 000 822 Maiden Plate

ELUSIVE VICTOR will not be long in winning having shown promise in both starts behind Snaith-trained winners. That yard saddles a useful coupling but preference is for highly regarded KNIGHTS TEMPLAR who should improve with experience under stable jock Fourie. RIVER THAMES improved last time and will have more to come. DHARMA and CONSUL OF WAR have the form to be competitive.

Top Tip: CONSUL OF WAR (1)
Watch out for: ROCHESTER (3)

12:25 - Betting World 087 741 2777 Maiden Plate (F & M)

Good maiden. BELLA SUMMER has finished close-up in both starts around the turn and should feature prominently from the ace. SPRING BURST attracted betting support in both starts and ran well on both occasions. She could have more to offer over this trip. CONTESSA'S GLANCE has the form and race fitness to pose a threat. AU REVOIR (draw) and BOUNDLESS DEEP (fitness) are capable

Watch out for: BELLA SUMMER (3)

13:00 - Supabets 0861 76 22 37 Fm 68 Handicap (F & M)

Tricky but improving 3YOs could edge older hard-knocking rivals, despite conceding weight. GRANDIFLORA is weighted to confirm recent form over KAWAKAMI, but the latter has more scope and can improve to turn the tables. SECRET DEPTHS is above average and can reverse recent form with that rival on these terms. SANS REGRETS, GO SNOW GIRL GO and TATTOOED ROCKER have more to offer.

Top Tip: KAWAKAMI (1)
Watch out for: SECRET DEPTHS (3)

13:35 - Cape Mile (Non-Black Type)

Smashing contest worthy of Grade 1 status. EYES WIDE OPEN and ROCKET COUNTDOWN resume after rewarding 3YO seasons and could play a role if race ready. A NEW DAWN and SILVER MAPLE are unexposed so could pop up under galloping weights. We've not seen the best of unbeaten RAINBOW BRIDGE and he should confirm recent form with FIFTY CENTS, COPPER FORCE and HORIZON on these terms.

Watch out for: ROCKET COUNTDOWN (2)

14:10 - Laisserfaire Stakes (Listed) (Fillies And Mares)

Open. The Snaith yard's four-pronged attack is led by CASUAL DIAMOND (2nd last year), but stablemates TOWNSHIP MELODY and ANGEL'S TRUMPET could get a look in too. OSTINATO and TOO PHAT TO FLY are picks of the Kotzen-trained quartet. MAGICAL WONDERLAND and CALL TO ACCOUNT are capable but have fitness concerns and big weights to shoulder. ANIME could surprise for raiding Drier.

Watch out for: CALL TO ACCOUNT (4)

14:45 - Woolavington Handicap (Listed)

Intriguing race as the pace could prove decisive. Progressive BALLAD OF THE SEA was 2nd to subsequent Algoa Cup winner Magnificent Seven in a similar contest on his comeback. He had SISTER SOOZIE and BENJAN behind that day and should confirm on these terms. He is closely matched with ROCK MY SOUL on earlier form, so respect that rival. JAILHOUSE ROCK is bred to enjoy this trip

Watch out for: ROCK MY SOUL (4)

15:20 - Next Meeting Kenilworth 15 November 2018 Mr 80 Handicap

The form of the race won by Silver Maple should be worth siding with and a big performance from that runner in the Cape Mile would strengthen the cases here of SPECTRA FORCE and CAPE XTREME, although both could struggle to reverse the form with improving 3YO HUDOO MAGIC. Last-start winner BEN-HUR warrants respect, as does top-weight CHATUCHAK who should have more to offer now.

Top Tip: CAPE XTREME (2)
Watch out for: BEN-HUR (3)
