14:15 (Pontefract) Snow Girl

14:45 (Pontefract) Wor Willie

15:15 (Pontefract) Roman Mist

15:45 (Pontefract) Dream Composer

16:15 (Pontefract) Spy

16:45 (Pontefract) Chimed

17:15 (Pontefract) Iur Cinn Tra

15:15 (Pontefract) Roman Mist

The return to a mile is in Roman Mist's favour ahead of the Weatherbys Bloodstock Pro Pipalong Stakes.

Tom Ward's filly is really likeable and she had to be very brave to win the Listed Snowdrop Stakes at Kempton, for which she carries a penalty in this.

However, it was her performance in defeat last time out which suggests she has arguably improved again.

Stepped up to almost nine furlongs for the Group Three Princess Elizabeth Stakes at the Derby meeting, she travelled best of all and hit the front looking sure to win.

Unfortunately, she was seemingly outstayed close home by Bashkirova and Potapova and was beaten a length and three-quarters into third.

There was certainly no disgrace in that defeat, with the handicapper viewing it as another career-best performance, and another bold bid looks assured.

16:45 (Pontefract) Chimed

Roman Mist's rider William Buick can double up with the Sir Michael Stoute-trained Chimed in the Ben And Mary Hibbert Memorial Maiden Stakes.

The three-year-old has an impeccable pedigree, being a son of Frankel out of Group One-winning filly Timepiece, but has not yet lived up to that regal breeding.

A third placed finish on his racecourse debut at Kempton in November promised plenty, but favourite backers have had their fingers burnt twice this spring, with Chimed finishing a close second at Windsor and a disappointing sixth at Nottingham.

The handicapper has given him a mark of 88, making him the highest-rated horse in this field, and he is given another chance on his first start since being gelded.
