14:40 (Sandown) Attack

Attack can go one better in the British EBF Maiden Stakes.

The Wootton Bassett colt was held up on his racecourse debut at Yarmouth before being asked for an effort three furlongs out but found 6/4 favourite El Burhan too good by one and a quarter lengths.

Sure to be better for that experience, John and Thady Gosden’s two-year-old will again be partnered by Osin Murphy and can get the better of stablemate Aegean Sea.


15:15 (Sandown) Born Ruler


Born Ruler can finally get back into the winner’s enclosure in the Book Your Coral-Eclipse Tickets Now Handicap.

The four-year-old son of Kingman returned from a 223-day break at Lingfield last month and ran freely when being beaten into second by Party Island over a mile and a half.

He was dropped back in trip to 10 furlongs for his turf debut at Ayr and again had to settle for second as he trailed in half a length behind Pol Roger, with the race not panning out in his favour.

Raised 2lb since those efforts Sir Mark Prescott’s gelding can come on for the run and get back to winning ways.


15:50 (Sandown) Crimson Road

Crimson Road shed the maiden tag when contesting a 1m2f turf handicap at Lingfield in this grade and will be a leading player set to follow up in the Style Awards Return To Ladies Day Handicap.

Devoirs Choice went well at Haydock a week ago finishing a smart second in a lower level 1m2f handicap. Big chance with progress likely.

Screaming Eagle, who has Murphy in the seat, produced a good fourth among this company at Newmarket over the distance, so will be in the mix with the interesting Signalman.


17:00 (Sandown) Cock And Bull

Cock and Bull can continue his impressive record since being gelded in the Racing & Music Nights At Sandown Park Handicap.

The three-year-old grey struggled in his juvenile season with a best performance of seventh but has had a new lease of life since returning to the track this season.

He was beaten just a neck when stepping up to a mile and a half at Wolverhampton in March, before breaking his maiden four days later at Kempton.

He followed that up with another pair of second-place finishes at Windsor and Wolverhampton, the latter by a short head.

He has a 5lb rise to overcome, but the first try at a mile and three-quarters could see his improvement continue, with the first-time booking of champion jockey William Buick hardly a negative.
