Dutch Connection can continue his love affair with Goodwood by repeating last year's victory in the Weatherbys Racing Bank Supreme Stakes.

Charlie Hills' smart performer pulled two lengths clear of Salateen last August to win for the third time at the Sussex track.

He has been out of luck since then but hinted he was coming back to his best when only beaten two and a quarter lengths behind Sir Dancealot in the Lennox Stakes despite being unplaced in a tight finish.

He had won that race in 2016 and a performance anywhere near that would see him net this prize again.

Giving Glances has been on an upward curve with wins at Lingfield and Leicester, for which she has gone up a total of 13lb in the ratings.

Alan King has given her the chance in a better grade and she can prove up to the task by wining the Ladbrokes Home Of The Odds Boots Fillies' Handicap.

Princess Power promises to be the star turn at Beverley, where she can surge to a four-timer in the Covers33 For All Your Vinyl Needs Nursery Handicap.

Nigel Tinkler's filly did not bother the judge in her first three starts but has turned that around dramatically with wins on this track, then at Thirsk and Newmarket.

She lowered the colours of Ginger Nut on her latest start and that horse had won the Weatherbys Super Sprint and was successful at York on Wednesday.

That form looks superior to any of her rivals.

Withernsea can take advantage of a big drop in class in the John Jenkins Memorial Claiming Stakes to win for the first time since May 2017.

The Richard Fahey-trained seven-year-old may not be the force he once was, but he did not run at all badly when fifth to stablemate Third Time Lucky at York a month ago.

He comes out on top on the ratings and can register a confidence-boosting success.

Spanish City has been running creditably in competitive seven-furlong handicaps all summer, winning at Newcastle and Doncaster as well as putting in creditable efforts at Ascot, York and Newmarket.

Roger Varian looks to have found a less taxing task in the Racing Welfare Handicap at Yarmouth.
