16:00 Chepstow The infuriating Catalinas Diamond seems to always get going when the bird has already flown, so to speak. Handily away at her beloved Bath last time she managed to get outpaced at a crucial stage before knuckling down really well inside the last to finish a never nearer fifth. Well enough handicapped at present it is interesting connections have sent her out again so soon and she does handle this track, all things look in place for her to run a big race and at the odds she makes plenty of appeal for a place. Very First Blade and Our Lord look the main dangers though strong market vibes for any could be significant in what is a moderate race. CATALINAS DIAMOND (E/W)

16:45 Wolverhampton Patanjali hails from a yard firing in the winners and this looks a good chance to gain compensation for her unlucky third at Lingfield last time. Often slowly away, Eve Johnson Houghton’s filly will require the gaps to appear but the addition of first time cheek pieces may sharpen her up and she is handed the vote. Dark Confidant is beginning to slip down the weights after a string of uninspiring efforts, from the Fahey yard however it would be no surprise if he were to bounce back and he has won here before. Zebelini looks the pace angle but from stall one, Patanjali looks to have a great chance to reel them all in. PATANJALI (WIN) – NAP
