Oaks final 21:45

T1 Boher Princess
Litter-sister to Eclipse third Boher Paddy and Charlie Lister's second string here. She broke better from trap one in the semi-final but moved off and could cause problems for Spinkys Nod if doing the same again. In career best form but would need a big lead to beat these.

T2 Spinkys Nod
Only unbeaten finalist and could hardly be in better form after her seasonal rest. Beat big rival Silverview Perky on merit in the semis but will need to trap again from a less favourable draw and avoid middle moving trap one if she's to take the big prize.

T3 Droopys Aretha
Has done well to reach this stage having only debuted in September, but looks up against it and may struggle to get a run in between early paced rivals.

T4 Droopys Loner
Another relative newcomer but makes much more appeal having won in both quarter and semi-finals, both from this draw. Looks to be improving rapidly and a good mix of middle pace and stamina gives her outside chances.

T5 Silverview Perky
Bids to give Charlie Lister a first Oaks success and can trap better to reverse semi-final form with Spinkys Nod given her more advantageous draw. Still only a puppy (Jan '10 whelp), she was only four spots outside the clock in the quarter-finals and could prove top class.

T6 Thurlesbeg Bound
A second finalist for Seamus Cahill (also has Droopys Aretha), and like her kennelmate has yet to win in the competition. A strong-running bitch, she can stay on to claim minor spoils.

Verdict:
Silverview Perky can fill in a rare blank on Charlie Lister's CV and ensure he remains in the hunt to be Trainer of the Year. Still only a puppy, she was somewhat surprisingly turned over by Spinkys Nod in the semis, but had got within half a length of Taylor Sky's track-record in the previous round and looks far better drawn than her rival who may struggle to avoid Lister's other runner Boher Princess on the run up. Droopys Loner has a bit to find but is improving quickly, while Thurlesbeg Bound could stay on for a share of the spoils.


19:40 480m
On a mouth-watering card this is undoubtedly the trickiest race of the night and any selection is only made tentatively. That said Droopys Steve beat a decent bunch of puppies at Yarmouth on Saturday, and while a trial would have been a plus may have improved ahead of his rivals.

20:00 Marathon
Capoley Ash, back at Wimbledon where he was Leger runner-up, can restore his edge over Ayamzagirl, who he had beaten three times before she surprisingly turned him over at Nottingham last week after poaching an early lead.

20:15 480m
Derby semi-finalist Destroy The Camp will relish the return to Wimbledon, especially as the only wide seed from his favoured trap six box and rates a solid selection against a field of front-running rivals.

20:35 Sprint
Lil Risky, in hot form in the National Sprint at Nottingham on Monday, beat Jimmy Lollie on his only previous start here in October and can follow up from a favoured trap one draw.

20:50 Hurdles
Irish National winner Olivers Twist will probably prove popular but veteran Plane Daddy has been expertly campaigned this year and can make it eight wins from his last 12 over CD.

21:10 Stayers
Leger semi-finalist Skywalkershearer has fared well in the draw outside railer Express Trend and looks a good bet to make it five wins in six over this 687m trip.

21:25 480m
What a race! Irish Laurels winner Razldazl Rioga posted a first class trial last week and will doubtless be a big player if getting out, but Eclipse third Boher Paddy has a string of fast times around here and is hard to oppose.
