PORTO FERRO ran well over course and distance last time, beaten by just a head in second despite meeting trouble in running. The handicapper has been fair with a 2lb rise in the weights and she has a 5lb claimer on board today for good measure.

DELEGATE THIS LORD improved last season and put in a good effort on his return to the turf at Bath last time out. He was blocked off entering the final quarter-mile and had to make up a lot of ground. He was a solid third in the end and this slight step up in trip could help.

3.10 – Mullen’s star bet (add to your betslip)
FLIGHT OF FANTASY had a good winter on the all-weather and followed up a Kempton win with a good second at Wolverhampton last time out. She is back on turf from a 5lb lower mark than that win and this trip is ideal. She looks hard to beat here.


COME ON COME ON has only raced three times in an interrupted career but he won two of those and went wrong the other time. He showed his well being with a game win on the AW at Kempton last time and looks on a fair mark returning to handicap level. This step up in trip looks a wise move too.

STARTERS ORDERS Fancy going to Royal Ascot? Here’s all you need to know about the meeting


MEDBURN DREAM has dropped back to his last winning mark and he has gone well over this course and distance before. The booking of Andrea Atzeni is interesting and he has gone well fresh in the past.


EMPLOYER caught the eye on his debut in November when running on well despite not being asked too many questions. He should be happy over this longer distance and wouldn’t have to improve much to strike.


SILVER QUARTZ did well on his debut at Newmarket in October over this trip where he was just collared in the final few yards. He has been lucky with the draw here and there should be a lot more to come.


BOBBY’S CHARM was a relatively expensive buy who had three quiet runs in maidens last term so starts on a handy mark of 70 now. The yard’s runners are in decent form and you would expect plenty of improvement this season.
