Odds correct at the time of writing and provided by Bet365
Thirsk 14:32 – Papa Don’t Preach (7/1)
Trainer: Kevin Frost
Jockey: Paul Mulrennan
Papa Don’t Preach ran extremely well on his turf debut at Wetherby last time out. The fiery speedball has seen that form work out extremely well with runners he finished in front of last time coming out to win subsequently including Twelfth Night and It Just Takes Time. He is only one pound higher than when scoring at Newcastle under this jockey last season. It is the first time that Paul Mulrennan has ridden him since and with so many of these struggling to find their form, they could well take advantage.
Newbury 16:10 – Intellogent (10/1)
Trainer: Jane Chapple-Hyam
Jockey: Hollie Doyle
Intellogent is now becoming dangerously well handicapped and his first run back in the Group Three Earl Of Sefton Stakes suggested he may well be on his way back into some decent form. Jane Chapple-Hyam has dropped him into handicap company for the first time since he finished an excellent runner-up in the Royal Hunt Cup at Royal Ascot last season. With a run now under his belt, the six-year-old can make his mark now given the opportunity and the positive booking of Hollie Doyle. This is a first time ride for her on this likeable sort and they look sure to give a good account.
Newmarket 17:00 – Ancient Times(6/1)
Trainer: Harry Eustace
Jockey: Hayley Turner
A first run of the year and a first time tongue tie could well prove beneficial to this five-year-old son of Exceed And Excel. He won first time out when ridden by Hayley Turner last season so has proven he can go well fresh. He is a horse that loves to hear his hooves rattle on the ground so connections will be hoping that the rain stays away. He has been dropped slightly in the ratings by the handicapper since his last run at Wolverhampton last October. Ususally ridden prominently, he can make an immediate impact for his yard this year.
Newbury 17:18 – Sergeant Tibbs (12/1)
Trainer: John Flint
Jockey: George Rook
Sergeant Tibbs was dropped in grade last week and was given a solid chance by the handicapper. He found only one too strong on that occasion and it will be of little surprise to see him build on that off just a two-pound higher mark here. He is a previous course and distance winner and should be nearing peak fitness now. He remains five-pounds lower in the ratings than what he last won off so remains a danger off bottom-weight here. He cannot be completely ruled out of this by any means.
