Both of yesterday’s selections ran well and finished second (Chil Chil at 15/2 and Saffron Beach at 3/1).

There are two bets for the third day of the Craven meeting.

13:50 – 6f Each Way Extra At bet365 Handicap (Class 2)

A few of these arrive here with the advantage of race fitness following an All Weather campaign, and I fancy BRAVADO (1 point win bet at 14/1) to appreciate this return to turf and outrun his odds. The Mark Johnston yard has been in really good form of late and sent out Overwrite to win here on Tuesday. Franny Norton has been aboard six winners for Johnston in the last fortnight and travels here for just this one ride today.

This son of Showcasing made his racecourse debut back in October and won his first three career starts. The victory at Redcar – his only start on turf to date - was hugely impressive and he powered clear by almost five lengths. He followed that up with another impressive success from the front at Wolverhampton before running well in defeat twice. Those runs came under slightly different tactics and I’d expect Norton to go back to front running today, especially from a good draw in stall 2. He has to bounce back from his only disappointing run to date at Lingfield last time out, but he suffered interference in running and can be forgiven that effort.

Significantly should also run well on his second start of the season, and Creative Force, a course and distance winner who was last seen in the Coventry Stakes, is a fascinating contender dropped into handicap company.

15:35 – 1m bet365 Craven Stakes (Group 3)

Trainer Charlie Appleby won this race in 2018 with the subsequent Derby winner Masar and looks to have a strong chance of another victory with MASTER OF THE SEAS (NAP – 1 point win bet at 5/2). This son of Dubawi is out of a Listed winning mare and related to several decent performers. He made an excellent start to his career with a win over seven furlongs at this course before an impressive Group 2 success on the neighbouring July Course. 

He came up a little short in the Group 1 National Stakes on his final start of 2020 but should have benefitted from a winter in Dubai. His second-place finish in the Meydan Classic 49 days ago will have out him spot on for this. William Buick takes the ride and a hood has been fitted for the first time.

Stablemate La Barrosa is next best ahead of Mystery Smiles, whose big price is a reflection that he may be better over 6-7 furlongs.
