11:15 AM - Welcomes You Maiden Plate (F & M)

ALPHA SAPHIRE is a long-time maiden but seldom finishes far off the action and can get another look in. PRINCESS PENELOPE disappointed last time but was difficult in the preliminaries and is capable of better. RIVER RHONE has scope for further improvement but may need the run. JACQUELINE reverts to this track and trip with blinkers on and should go close with progress likely.

211:50 AM - Tab Telebet 0861 000 822 Graduation Plate

Well-related SILVA'S BULLET is the best-weighted runner in the race and still fairly unexposed. He caught the eye on his local debut when returning from a break and will strip a fitter horse here so with improvement expected should go close. PROVOCATEUR has been 2nd in his last two, both over this trip, and could pose the biggest threat in receipt of 4kg. CYBER LAW can earn too

312:25 PM - Hospitality Now Open For LQP2019 Maiden Plate

Competitive maiden. ROCHESTER, CASH CALL and ALL IN LINE have shown enough to get a look in although preference is for the last-mentioned runner who is has more scope for improvement. FATEFUL ran well after a break and will have more to offer over this trip, but so will MARAUDING who was on debut when finishing ahead of that rival last time. Watch the betting on the newcomers

41:00 PM - Betting World 087 741 2777 Maiden Plate (F & M)

BOUNDLESS DEEP has run well in both Cape starts and was ahead of ANINA over course and distance last time. She should improve to confirm the form. Stable companion SOMMERSONNE is good enough to be competitive if race ready after a layoff. CRUSADE'S PROMISE has improved this term and should be involved if making further progress. Watch DREAM BABY DREAM who was fancied on debut

51:35 PM - Hospitality Bookings LQP2019 021 700 1662 Mr 68 Handicap

LUCKY DANCER and WINTER STORM are above-average but face a tough task conceding weight to older hard-knocking handicappers. The latter has a prior engagement so his participation here is also in doubt. PHOTOCOPY was behind last-start winner WHAT A SUMMER recently but could turn the tables on these terms from a better draw. FLASH TWICE and BESTDAY OF MYLIFE will be compeititive.

62:10 PM - Supabets 0861 76 22 37 Fm 80 Handicap (F & M)

A case can be made for all. Top-weight LEISURE TRIP has form at this level and won a similar contest in October and had STRAWBERRY FIRE in close attendance, so there's little between them. HELEN'S IDEAL was not disgraced at Grade 1 level last time and will fare better in this class, so could represent value. PERFECT AIR and NASTERGAL should turn the tables on SUMMER OLIMPICS.

Watch out for: STRAWBERRY FIRE (3)
72:45 PM - 0861 150 160 Pinnacle Stakes

Top race worthy of Graded status. BOLD RESPECT and SERGEANT HARDY ran well in a Grade 2 when returning from rests. Both will be fitter and should go well on favourable terms. KASIMIR took advantage of his superior fitness when beating those rivals and has more to do on these terms but could be better than rated. SAND AND SEA, ATTENBOROUGH, SPEEDPOINT, PACIFIC TRADER can earn.

Top Tip: KASIMIR (4)
Watch out for: BOLD RESPECT (1)
83:20 PM - Fm 80 Handicap (F & M)

Tricky but Plattner-owned pair of EVELINA and SPAM ALERT, who are closely matched on these terms on the form of their 15 November meeting (which the latter may have needed after rest), are likely to feature prominently. CHARGE D'AFFAIRES and WINGS OF HONOR are capable but may need the run. CROWDED HOUSE should be competitive on current form and FOURS A CROWD has a place chance.

Top Tip: SPAM ALERT (12)
Watch out for: EVELINA (9)
93:50 PM - Next Meeting Kenilworth 4 January 2019 Mr 68 Handicap

TEMP THE TIGER returned to form when finishing ahead of consistent stable companion APOLLO ACE and could do so again on similar terms in his peak run. The latter will run his race but is worse off with JEPHTHAH on these terms. TYRIAN is capable of better than his last start suggests, RED RASCAL will enjoy racing back up the straight and READY TO RUMBLE can surprise. Quartet on?

Top Tip: APOLLO ACE (1)
