14:53 (Ffos Las) Typewritten

15:28 (Ffos Las) Allemande

17:10 (Ffos Las) Red Derek

13:43 (Ffos Las) Ancestral Land

Ancestral Land can make amends for his immaturity on debut when he lines up in the 3A's Leisure Carmarthen Maiden Stakes at Ffos Las.

Clive Cox's youngster was a beaten favourite at Windsor first time, but did himself no favours when by hanging into the centre of the track from the intersection and also showing signs of greenness in the closing stages.

However, he still managed to pick up a silver medal, which now looks no mean feat considering the winner Al Karrar went on to finish second in the Richmond Stakes at Goodwood and both the fourth Tarjeeh and fifth Swift Asset have impressed when scoring since. The latter has also been deemed good enough to run in Group-race company recently.

Ancestral Land cost 140,000 guineas at the Book One sales and has a speedy pedigree that points to a bold bid here.

14:18 (Ffos Las) Let's Have A Flyer

The David Evans-trained Let's Have A Flyer catches the eye as she makes her handicap debut in the 3A's Leisure Carmarthen Nursery.

The daughter of Camacho could be spotted making late headway into fifth place on her Chester introduction, but failed to build on that promising effort at Haydock on her second start.

However, a third placed finish at Thirsk recently was a step back in the right direction and an opening perch of 70 looks workable as she enters the handicap arena.

14:53 (Ffos Las) Typewritten

Al Gaiya arrives on the back of two solid placed efforts on the all-weather and must enter calculations on her return to turf duty, but Typewritten edges the vote.

Although she does have a worrying tendency to hang left, Tom Ward's filly has been running consistently well of late and she is fancied to play a leading role.

Hellavaheart and Point Louise also merit consideration in a competitive handicap.
