There was plenty to like about SABOUSI‘s first effort and he sets a decent standard, with improvement likely. Top Table, who’s a half-sister to a Del Mar Oaks (Grade 1) winner, is an interesting newcomer.
With his Wolverhampton win given a timely boost by the runner-up going in last weekend KAHEALL, who’s open to the most improvement among these, can make a successful start to nursery life. Toussarok, who appreciated the return to theall-weather and step up to this trip when having London Palladium and Evening Song behind at Kempton, rates the main danger.
Kylla Looks will be hard to beat if repeating last week’s effort, but that was on Tapeta and the cheekpieces need to work as well a second time. In a weak handicap in which she and ALEZAN, who’s 2lb well in after last Wednesday’s Kempton second, stand out, the vote goes to the latter.
The consistent Elzaam’s Dream, who’s 2lb well in after last week’s close second, is an obvious starting point. However, her recent string of decent efforts have come over 6 furlongs on Tapeta and she’s making her Polytrack debut. ONEOFARAREKIND, who again hinted at ability last time when slowly away from the outside stall and inclined to pull hard, looks a viable alternative off a sensible opening mark.

War Glory should make another bold bid at a track he enjoys, but the three-year-old contingent may hold sway. Pistoletto and United Front (former stablemates at Ballydoyle) can have a case argued, but COUNT OF AMAZONIA (NAP) pulled clear with a subsequent winner over course and distance on his stable debut three weeks ago and he can make light of a 5lb rise.
It needed a drop into selling company for Gamgoom to resume winning ways in Germany, but his course and distance win in February came off 7lb higher in a stronger race and it’s hard to believe connections would be bringing him over if they didn’t feel he retained a good chunk of ability.
Nigel Nott and Diamond Dougal come here on the back of good wins, but perhaps INVINCIBLE LARNE could be the answer. His C&D win last month was backed up by the clock and he endured a torrid passage in the straight here last time.
Big Country made a pleasing return to life with Mick Appleby at Kempton last month and can go well, but POWER OF STATES can further enhance his fine record at the track.
Tebay has had a wind operation since last in action and Ben Curtis was initially booked for his return, which suggests he’ll be ready to go. He’s feared, along with the unexposed Nightswimming and Famous Dynasty, but SCOFFLAW drops into a 0-55 and his latest C&D third suggested he was ready to exploit his much-reduced mark.
Splash Of Verve and Zayriyan are major players on 2020 form, but the former has a poor strike-rate and the latter is a longstanding maiden. Most of the three-year-olds are open to improvement for various reasons, and HENLEY PARK may be the answer upped in trip.
