10/3

Impressive maiden winner over 5f at Ripon (good-to-soft) on her penultimate start and drops in grade following a disappointing 13L last of eight in a Listed race at Sandown (5f, good) early last month.

11/4

Made the perfect start to her career when winning by 3¾L in a 5f maiden at Beverley (good-to-firm) last month. Bold show looks likely with a promising apprentice jockey taking the ride.

Unraced Kodiac filly bought for €42,000 at the sales as a yearling last October. Dam placed at two and she is an interesting runner on debut for a top yard.

Beat one rival home when fifth in a six runner 7f novice race at Newbury (good) on debut just over two weeks ago. Probably best watched dropping back in distance.

Finished last on both starts to date including when beaten 24L over 6f at Ripon (good) recently. Likely to be playing a minor role once more.

Signs of ability when 8½L sixth in a 6f maiden at York (good) when debuting last month. Interesting to see how she performs dropping back in trip.

Unraced daughter of The Gurkha bought for 26,000 gns at the sales last autumn. Half-sister to a number of winners and market support would be notable on racecourse debut.

Unraced Coulsty filly cost connections €48,000 at the breeze-up sales last month. Half-sister to top sprinter Amour Propre and is an interesting runner on debut.

Unraced Prince Of Lir filly purchased for €15,000 in October last year. Dam unraced and she is worth a check in the market on debut for a useful yard.

4/1

Placed on both previous starts including when 1L third over 6f at Newbury (good-to-soft) just under a month ago. Strong claims of getting off the mark at the third attempt for a top stable.

Forecast

Beechwood Donna (11/4), Risk Of Thunder (10/3), The Circus (4/1), Passthecourvoisier (5/1), Cream Of The Crop (10/1), Iris Dancer (14/1), Babe Alicious (18/1), Sunset Spirit (28/1), All About Charley (33/1), Libby Ami (80/1), Harswell Princess (500/1)

Verdict
RISK OF THUNDER can put a disappointing effort behind her to register a second career success in the opening race on the card. The selection can get the better of debut winner Beechwood Donna who has a promising apprentice taking a valuable 5lb off in this event while third place can go to The Circus who represents a top yard.
