6/4

Half-sister to a couple of useful winners at this trip. Stayed on well after a slow start when landing a 6f novice at Kempton by 2L on debut. Helped by strong pace there, but still worthy of the utmost respect under a 7lb penalty.

10/3

Didn't need to improve much to land a C&D auction contest on her third and most recent start, beating Gift List by a head. Has a 4lb penalty, and needs to find more to follow up in a stronger event.

40/1

By Twilight Son out of a well-related maiden. Slow to stride when 14¼L fifth of 6 to Selected in a 5f maiden here on debut. Sure to know more now, but has plenty to find on form.

11/2

Related to a couple of 2-y-o winners from family of Lennox Stakes winner Byron. In need of the experience when 5½L ninth of 11 to She Do in a 6f novice at Doncaster first time up. Likely to do much better, so dangerous to ignore in this company.

6/1

Half-sister to sprint winners Lil Grey (Group-placed as a 2-y-o) and Miss Rosina. Showed ability when a one-paced fifth of 10 behind Red Fascinator in a C&D novice 13 days ago. Can improve, but does need to.

9/1

Mayson half-sister to 5f-7f winner Mr Diamond and 1m- 1m1½f winner Mr Carbonator. Not helped by a tardy start when 5¾L fourth of 5 to Kohinoor in a Haydock maiden on debut, and should do better with that experience under her belt.

14/1

Not disgraced when 5¾L eighth of 11 to Hot Scoop on debut at Windsor late last month, but quite a bit of progress required if she's to make a serious impact here.

25/1

Half-sister to useful 7f/1m winner Honourable Emperor and 1m winner Fountain of Honour. Yard introduced a smart winning newcomer in Muker in June, so market check needed for this filly on racecourse bow.

80/1

Full-sister to 6f winner Gold Brocade, out of a half-sister to useful winner Hattaash. Yard's juveniles invariably in need of experience starting out.

Betting

Forecast

Perfect Times (6/4), Sandhoe (10/3), Hilarity (11/2), Hungry For Fashion (6/1), May She Shine (9/1), Natural Instinct (14/1), Piran Meadows (25/1), Ghayahib (40/1), Snow Berry (80/1)

Verdict
PERFECT TIMES did well to win on debut at Kempton given she was well off the pace at halfway, and she looks to have excellent claims of following up under a penalty. Hilarity was badly in need of the experience on her debut, and is the type to improve markedly, so makes each-way appeal, and is preferred to the penalised C&D winner Sandhoe for minor honours.
