43/1 E/W Double

15:05 Birum Stakes - Mon Bel Canto (9/2)

Half brother to a Listed winner over this distance, he impressed on his first two starts last season on good ground winning both in fairly stylish fashion over 7f clearly looking likely to thrive off further in both runs.

He did however then come unstuck in his next two runs but both of those came on heavy ground and now making his first start of 2021 on good ground with the apprentice jockey getting 8lbs off, he's a massive player in the field.

15:35 Nubienne Stakes - Antolya (7/1)

Two second placed finishes from two starts, her first second came over 7f and then her latest run came over 1m 2f at Angers back in October.

She showed she's got a bit about her in that race when held up at the rear but making late headway to grab second.

Her dam was a winner over this distance on debut and for top connections on her seasonal reappearance, she looks a terrific price at 7/1.

6/1 NAP

18:05 Karaway Stakes - Hurricane Dream

A maiden winner back in November of 2019, he had a terrific 2020 winning three of his six starts including a Listed triumph and a close second in Group 2 company.

Unlucky not to do better on his seasonal reappearance last time out when hitting plenty of trouble on his way to finishing a four lengths fifth at La Teste De Buch but his best form has come over this distance and he's going to take some beating if rediscovering that early 2020 form up against a more than beatable field.
