6.00 Newbury - Wild Beauty

Wild Beauty looks hard to oppose in the Hot To Trot Racing EBF Fillies' Novice Stakes at Newbury.

Charlie Appleby's Frankel youngster showed potential first time out at Ascot, while running green, in a race won by Queen Mary sixth Get Ahead.

She showed the benefit of that experience to run out a smooth winner at Haydock, and should be set to do better still now she gets to try seven furlongs. There might be a good prize in her at some stage this season.

1.25 Ayr - Arranmore

Arranmore is the one to be with in the opening Summer Staycations At Western House Hotel Handicap.

David O'Meara's four-year-old comfortably got the better of old rival Six Strings - who had beaten him twice previously, but was back in fifth this time - at Carlisle last week.

That victory, over this trip, was a continuation of Arranmore's return to form since joining O'Meara just last month.

He has incurred a 5lb penalty, which means he must concede weight to all but one of his rivals here.

But Arranmore is still more than a stone and a half below the rating he reached in Ireland two years ago - and after re-discovering the winning knack, there is every reason to anticipate he can prosper again in this grade and conditions which suit.

2.35 Ayr - Bravado

Bravado has largely performed with credit in some decidedly decent company, despite failing to win any of his last six starts, and a revival could be on the cards in Scotland for the Book Now For Ladies Night Handicap.

Mark Johnston's three-year-old must restate his case after finishing a distant last of 11 in a very competitive Goodwood handicap last month.

Johnston has had him gelded since, however.

Bravado won his first three career starts last autumn and through the winter, including a notable defeat of subsequent dual Group and Royal Ascot winner Rohaan at Lingfield in January.

He had Rohaan behind him again at Kempton later the same month.

A string of tough assignments has followed. But this looks a much more feasible opportunity for Bravado to give weight away in a small field to three fellow three-year-olds who have not approached his level of form yet.

3.45 Ayr - Keep Busy

Keep Busy can live up to her name in style with victory in the Listed Irish Stallion Farms EBF Land O'Burns Fillies' Stakes at Ayr.

John Quinn's four-year-old was in action on day one of Royal Ascot when she outran odds of 50/1 to be a very honourable and close fifth behind Oxted in the Group One King's Stand Stakes.

She therefore has just seven days to get over those exertions, on good to firm ground.

Keep Busy is, however, taking a significant drop in class here, is abundantly clear on ratings and adaptable in terms of going should further rain fall in the west of Scotland.

In addition to her run in the King's Stand, the Night Of Thunder filly has lots of other classy form in the book, too - top of the list being her close second to the top-notch Glass Slippers in a Group One in Ireland last year.

She followed that up with a fine fifth place in the Abbaye on Arc day and if she is anything like her best form, then she should be very hard to beat on the way back to mixing it in Group-race company.
