RACE PREVIEWS & TIPS (THURSDAY)

18:00 Epsom Zaria has been disappointing since winning here last season though she gave notice last time, when a creditable third at Chepstow. Drawn in four today and three pounds below her last winning mark it would be surprising if she didn’t go close and as such she is handed the vote. Chosen Character is from a yard amongst the winners, strong market vibes would bring him into the equation though perhaps Ravenhoe and Stosur represent the biggest dangers to the selection. ZARIA (WIN) – NAP

19:50 Doncaster Three year old Firefright has twice raced here, resulting in a third and a comfortable success over the trip in a maiden back in April. Seemingly unfazed by any going conditions his latest effort when third at Sandown reads well in the context of this. Explain has been in good heart and won easily at Chester last time, his 8lbs penalty for that makes this harder but he has claims. Farlow and Firmdecisions could surprise if on a going day but the vote goes to the unexposed Firefright, who looks to have a handy weight. FIREFRIGHT (WIN)
