11:40 AM - Welcomes You Work Riders' Maiden Plate

CAPTAIN CARLOS and SPY were closely matched over course and distance last time. Both are likely to be prominent again, although FAMOUS ORATOR shows pace too and could mix it with them. GALLAGHER and THE SUIT have shown enough to be competitive but preference is for the latter's stable companion FERGUS who has more scope to improve. Watch LIMELIGHT with work rider Bambiso up!

Top Tip: Captain Carlos (2)
Watch out for: Benelux (3)
2 12:20 PM - Tab Telebet 0861 000 822 Maiden Juvenile Plate (Fillies)

No form to go by in this field full of newcomers, so the betting could provide more clues to the chances of these fillies on debut. What A Winter debutantes CYBER BLOSSOM and WHAT A LOVER are worth a market is check, as is DUCHESSOFCORNWALL who gets weight from all with a 4kg claimer up. MISS HONEY and ROCKACHINO are bred to be useful so could shape if forward enough.

Watch out for: Rockachino (5)
3 12:55 PM - Maiden Plate (F & M)

WHAT A RED makes most appeal of those with experience, having finished on the premises in both starts over this course and distance. EMMA LEIGH, MAKARANGA LOVE and SUPER LADY could improve with experience to finish closer to that rival. PHILOMENA is open to further progress, so could earn. Well-bred newcomers GOLDEN MIRAGE and WINDOW TO AFRICA could be competitive on debut.

4 1:30 PM - Betting World 087 741 2777 Maiden Plate (F & M)

Hard race to assess with Fourie on lesser-fancied EVENING CHANT instead of DOUBLED OVER. The latter, like top-weight FASHION FORCE, is overdue a maiden win after several close-up finishes. FAYE has more scope for improvement and should be in the thick of things. Stable companions BLUSH SCARLET and ELUSIVE GREEN have claims over this trip and PROFOUND can show more in blinkers.

Top Tip: Fashion Force (1)
Watch out for: Faye (2)
5 2:05 PM - Hospitality Now Open LQP2019 Mr 80 Handicap

Tricky. MERAKI finished behind a smart 3yo prospect in a similar contest last time (SHERWOOD FOREST further back) and on that form should be competitive. However, conceding weight to younger rivals PRICELESS RULER and QUICK STAR gives them the edge. SPECTRA FORCE could be hard to peg back if allowed a soft lead, although LADDER MAN, ANCESTRY and STRIKEITLIKEAMATCH can earn too.

Top Tip: Meraki (3)
Watch out for: Spectra Force (6)
6 2:40 PM - Supabets 0861 76 22 37 Mr 74 Handicap

Tricky. JOHNNY BLACK is weighted to confirm recent form with GREEN JACKET, although the latter should improve in his second run after gelding. PRINCE ORACY could get closer to that pair after an eye-catching last run. VASCOSTREETTRACTOR and TEMP THE TIGER should fare dropping in class. APOLLO ACE has done little wrong and can't be ignored. NORTHERN ROUTE can get a look in too.

7 3:10 PM - 0861 150 160 Fm 84 Handicap (F & M)

Well-bred VICE VERSA appeared back to her best when making all under a big weight in a similar contest last time, and she could follow up if building on that performance. Stable companion VODKA LIME should be competitive but is unlikely to turn the tables on these terms. THE BOSTON ROSE and OUTLANDOS D'AMOUR could improve with blinkers. VARSITY LOVER and PASSION PEACH can earn.

Top Tip: Vice Versa (1)
Watch out for: The Boston Rose (2)
8 3:45 PM - Next Meeting Kenilworth 22 December 2018 Fm 71 Handicap (F & M)

Get Quartets on. MADONNA will enjoy the extra and should be competitive with improvement expected. However, STAR FIGHTER makes more appeal with the form of her maiden win franked. Debut winner JETORIO could be anything. Little separates SKYE LANE, SECRET DEPTHS and INDIAN SONG on these terms. BE YOURSELF, ROCK ON WOOD, HEAVEN'S EMBRACE and ROCK TRIP could all play a role too.

Top Tip: Skye Lane (3)
Watch out for: Secret Depths (4)
