Though he has yet to win on the all-weather, ITSALONGLONGROAD has run well at times and has been in decent form on the Flat and over jumps lately, so gets the nod. Eloy D’Amerval shaped like he needed further than 1m last time but still has questions to answer. Dark Magic, Lady De Vesci and Tony The Gent are solid.
Though he hasn’t run on the Flat in over a year, HAMMERSMITH has been in decent fettle over hurdles without winning but can go well on this surface. Storm Steps is up 6lb for his course and distance win last time but could still be improving, while Aared could be a player.
PUNTERS POET (NAP) looks to be written in the stars here and presuming he stays, which he should, he ought to win this. That’s unless Solar System proves a different animal at the trip now.
Sister Rosetta and Provocateuse will possibly be shorter than everything else in the betting and it might be worth siding with LION RING, seemingly quite a promising colt on the back of his debut here when the draw did him no favours.
Fairly open but a chance is taken on GREAT MIDGE, who showed a bit more spark over 7 furlongs here last time and can benefit from this drop in trip. Pillar looks sure to run his race, while Sunset Nova and Feel Good Factor can go well
Though she is a 21-race maiden, SESTRIERE is given another chance to break her duck after decent efforts over different trips here lately. Last-time-out winners Eglish and Maggie Thunder are obvious dangers.
LET’S has eye-catching on debut behind Aikido and should reverse that form, though that one’s stablemate Racy Lacey rates an unknown. Ferrybank is respected.
BREAKFAST CLUB, just denied on his course debut, should make amends. Although, Allez Sophia is down markedly in grade for a top team.
