N/A
Age: 2
Weight: 9-8
OR: 92
Days: 20

The first selection of the afternoon comes in the Class 2 Nursery Handicap over a mile and Bold Act for Godolphin and Charlie Appleby looks the one to beat.

Seen three times in his career the son of New Approach was second on career debut over 7f on the July Course behind stablemate High Bank, but then got off the mark over the same C&D next time out.

Stepped up to a mile last time out at Kempton he went on to make it back to back wins, with the front two pulling well clear of the field and now tackling handicap company in this four runner affair, he should dominate if improving like he has.

Azure Blue

T: Michael Dods
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 9-3
OR: 89
Days: 18

Next up is the Premier Fillies' Handicap over six furlongs and we are taking on the favourite with the Michael Dods trained Azure Blue.

A winner on her final start as a juvenile last term having placed on her three prior starts, she was sent into her first handicap event on debut this term and was a good fifth of 21 in a 6f Sunday Series Dash Handicap at York.

She got off the mark for the season at Hamilton off a mark of 77next time out and then upped to 83 at Redcar bumped into Khanjar who won well by three lengths.

Sent to the July Course she ran a screamer to finish a staying on fourth of 19 at the July Cup meeting in a hot handicap and then over the same C&D got back to winning ways, seeing off Cuban Breeze who she takes on again.

Last seen at the start of September at York she was a close up fourth of 13 in a Class 3 Handicap off a mark of 89 and off the same mark should go close again.

Very consistent sprinter.

Nostrum

J: Ryan Moore
T: Sir Michael Stoute
N/A
Age: 2
Weight: 9-2
OR: N/A
Days: 63

The feature race of the afternoon is the Group Three Tattersalls Stakes over 7f and although only four runners go to post it looks a fascinating contest.

We are taking a chance on the very unexposed Nostrum for Sir Michael Stoute in the Juddmonte colours, with there being a thought he could be the yards and owners next superstar.

A winner on his sole start to date over 7f at Sandown when bolting up by close to four lengths, he has since been saved for this and if improving again, which he will need to, he looks a very exciting talent in a race full of smart performers.

Superb race.

William Carver

Ranch Hand

J: William Carver
T: Andrew Balding
N/A
Age: 6
Weight: 9-5
OR: 105
Days: 467

Another nice event on the afternoon is the Listed Rose Bowl Stakes over two miles and we are siding with last year's winner of the race Ranch Hand.

Winning this event off a mark of 100 last year, he has since been seen on the all weather, over hurdles and on the turf and everything looks set up for him to go close again.

A winner twice on the all weather in March and April, he was then dropped in trip to 1m4f in the G3 Al Rayyan Stakes and it did not suit.

Back up to todays trip he was a better second at Sandown in the G3 Coral Henry II Stakes and last time out at York dropped again in trip, although fourth of four he was less than three lengths behind the winner in the Listed Grand Cup Stakes.

Primed to go close.

Dhahabi

J: William Buick

N/A
Age: 4
Weight: 10-3
OR: 101
Days: 14

A very tricky event on the afternoon at Newmarket on Thursday is the Class 2 1m4f Handicap and Dhahabi just gets the nod.

A well bred son of Frankel he has not been seen all that often during his career, missing his three year old campaign due to a setback.

This term he has been seen three times, needing the run after close to 18 months off, he then went to Doncaster over a mile and finished a fair second behind Magical Morning.

Stepped up to 10f in a hot conditions race he was out his depth behind Derby winner Adayar and Masekela, but now tried at 12f in calmer waters, he has a big chance to show his true colours.

His pedigree suggests he has been waiting for this trip and he is worth another go.

Yantarni

J: William Buick

N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 9-10
OR: 85
Days: 27

The penultimate runner of the afternoon comes in the Class 4 Handicap over a mile and Yantarni for Charlie Appleby looks to be the one to beat.

Second on his debut at Newmarket in October last year behind Audience over 7f at Newmarket, he then went up to 8.5f at Wolves and was third behind two nice types.

Beaten for the third time in December at Southwell he was starting to become frustrating but last time out off a mark of 80 on handicap debut he showed his true ability to win well on the July Course over a mile.

That was on soft ground and he tried a quicker surface here but only 5lb higher, he should have progressed again.

Pierre-Louis Jamin

Postwick

J: Pierre-Louis Jamin
T: Harry Eustace
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 9-2
OR: 83
Days: 40

The final event of the afternoon sees the Class 4 Handicap over 1m2f and Postwick if backing up his latest performance looks too good for this field.

Last time out on his second handicap start back at 10f, he went to Newbury on quick ground and went on to win extremely well.

5lb higher for this run but with jockey Pierre-Louis Jamin offsetting 3lb, he is effectively only 2lb higher for this run which makes him solid.
