If you're after some more juicy info on Planet Sport's three main picks then read on.

13.40 Nottingham - Cumulonimbus

Charlie Fellowes' three-year-old can make it a stormy opener for the bookies in the Jeffrey King Memorial Race Novice Stakes.

Carrying plenty of heavyweight entries, including for the Dante and the Epsom Derby, Cumulonimbus will have to make an impression here to go onto such class races.

A third on debut at Doncaster was reasonable, getting in front of the subsequent winner Velasquez of the Gosdens and jockey David Egan is eminently capable.

14.15 Nottingham - State Legend

A tremendously competitive Handicap can go the way of James Ferguson's State Legend.

A hat-trick hunter out of Coolmore sire Churchill, his top class father won on soft and State Legend shouldn't be perturbed by give in the ground.

Daniel Muscatt gets the ride with State Legend open to further improvement.

16.00 Nottingham - Trueshan

Although being more well known for distances over two miles, Alan King's popular six-year-old has distance winning form over Wednesday's trip of one mile, six furlongs.

Trueshan has beaten the mighty Stradivarius in both the Prix Du Cadran and the Qipco British Champions Long Distance Cup.

The shorter trip may be more of a leveller in the Barry Hills Further Flight Stakes but class can pay in the Barry Hills Further Flight Stakes.
