LOST IN SPACE had plenty in hand when winning over seven furlongs at Newmarket last time and should improve over this mile.

Oisin Murphy was on board when he scored at Lingfield two runs ago.

Frankie wears the Godolphin blue on main danger Last Sunset who went close at Ascot 19 days ago.

She’s on a fair mark for this handicap debut.

2.25

QUICKSTEP LADY has not run a bad race this season and landed a deserved win at Goodwood last time. She kept it simple from the front and had five lengths in hand crossing the line. This is tougher but it’s still early days and there’s more to come.

Gale Force Maya has been knocking on the door at this level with seconds at Pontefract and Thirsk. She won’t be far away while Betsey Trotter was impressive when scoring at Thirsk and could defy a 6lb rise.

3.00

LA BARROSA was impressive when scooting in on debut at Ascot last time. He travelled sweetly over this trip and has a lot more to offer. There are questions over his two main rivals.

Yazaman has plenty of talent but is a hard ride who doesn’t seem to finish off his races.

Qaader has put in two poor efforts now and needs this slight drop in class to help. Both are stepping up in distance so could bounce back — but need to.

3.35

WITHHOLD (NAP) won this race 12 months ago when making all and has every chance of pulling off the same tactics again. He sees out two miles really strongly and put in his best effort of the season when second at Salisbury last time.

Mildenberger has been in cracking form on the all-weather and was second in the Sagaro Stakes at Newcastle. He’s back from more than three months off and has gone well fresh before.

Ghostwatch should find this a lot easier than the Ebor while Ranch Hand chased home the tip last time and this longer trip could help.

PONTEFRACT

2.05

VICTORY CHIME didn’t get the breaks when beaten less than two lengths at Chester last time. He is only 1lb higher than his Windsor success last month and saves his best for this trip.

Arctic Sound came from a long way back for a solid third at Ayr seven days ago and should be right there again, while Archie Perkins ran better than seventh place suggests at York latest.

2.40

DARK JEDI went close in the red-hot Old Borough Cup at Haydock last time as he continues to thrive for Tim Easterby. He is equally effective over this shorter trip and a 3lb rise in the weights looks fair.

Few of the others are in form and Frankel’s Storm could bounce back from two poor efforts at a track she likes.

Not So Sleepy is having his first Flat run since finishing fourth in last year’s Cesarewitch and is being primed for that marathon again.
