2pts win FRANCISCAN  9.5/1( Betfair and Betdaq)  Quipco Supporting Bristish Racing H'cap
1pt win ITHOUGHTITWASOVER 15/1 (Betfair)  QuipcoSupporting British Racing Stakes
Progressive towards the end of last season,Franciscan looks one to follow in handicaps this season and can start of the new term on a wining note. It's  interesting to note that there wouild have been a suitable race for him at Chester this week; -  his owner's favourite track -  and while it could be taken as a negative that he runs here and indeed a sign that he'll need this, his price his holding up at the moment and he'll most likely be fit to do himself justice here.

Ithoughtitwasover ran a poor race in testing conditions at Epsom last but does handle ground on the easy side . He has pieces of form in the book that give him a serious chance of winning this and with his yard in fairish form, could bounce right back to his best here.
Ithoughtitwasover won + 12.5pts

1.5pts win DISCOURSE 12/1 (Betfair) Quipco 1,000 GNS
1.5pts win DIALA 15.5/1 (Betfair) Quipco 1,000 GNS
Discourse created a positive visual impression when winning the Sweet Solero last August, easily disposing of a very hardy and useful yardstick in the process, and can give his trainer his second consecutive winner of this event. Admittedly the form of the yard is a concern; Mariner's Cross ran very well yesterday but a couple of others ran stinkers. However, it's not uncommon for many of the big yards to be a bit patchy at this early stage of the season and she is one of the more likely winners of this.

Her stable companion Lyric of Light is another of considerable interest but if they both aren't quite firing then one to take advantage could be Diali who chased home Lyric of Light on their debuts.While the winner then went and proved herself at the highest level, Diali appeared once more to lose her maiden tag. She arrives here unproven in Group company but it's very likely that she would have acquitted herself well in one of the filly juvenile G1's if asked to do so and she must be considered here.
