15:00 Pontefract - Adaay in Asia

Adaay In Asia can thrive in West Yorkshire when Harry Dunlop's filly goes in search of a four-timer in Pontefract's EBF Stallions Highfield Farm Flying Fillies' Stakes. Rid of a few issues that hindered her earlier career, the three-year-old has excelled in the handicap ranks of late, winning three on the spin. A good winner of a competitive six-furlong event during Glorious Goodwood, she blitzed her rivals when seen in Shergar Cup action at Ascot, coming home comfortably off her revised mark of 88. She is now entitled to take her chance at Listed level and victory in this sprinting contest could provide Dunlop with another stakes success before exiting the training ranks later in the year.

14:25 Pontefract - Wor Willie

The drop back to 12 furlongs paid dividends for Wor Willie over course and distance last month and Michael Dods' four-year-old appears primed to follow up in the Mary Clark "Favourite Day Of The Year" Handicap. He has gone up 8lb which will make life tougher, but the manner of his seven-and-a-half-length success suggests he could have enough in hand to strike again.

15:35 Pontefract - Ikhtiraaq

Sir Michael Stoute won the William Hill Pick Your Places Handicap 12 months ago and could do so again with recent Yarmouth scorer Ikhtiraaq. The three-year-old, who looked a useful operator in novice events at the backend of last season, was making just his second start of the season when scoring on the east coast and could have plenty more to come in the handicap ranks. He is 4lb higher here, but granted a good pace to aim at, expect the 220,000 guineas purchase to impress much more than he did last time.
