This may concern the two penalised runners with HENRY GONDOFF marginally preferred after dishing out a comfortable beating to an improving horse at Wetherby. He faces another one now, as although Royal Arcade ended up with nothing to beat here last time, he recorded an eye-catching RPR.
Tom Symonds’ LEGENDARY RHYTHM drew nicely clear with another unexposed one when scoring on her recent handicap debut and could still be well treated off today’s 7lb higher mark. Sawpit Sienna has a point to prove after a below-par effort last time, but she was in good form beforehand and may provide the main threat. Leeswood Lily can also feature.
Ardera Cross and Miss Amelia both bid to complete hat-tricks, while Sabbathical won over course and distance in a first-time visor this month and looks interesting with blinkers now tried. However, TONTO’S SPIRIT travelled well for a long when returning from a break at Ayr four weeks ago.
If that outing did him good, he can capitalise upon some considerable help from the handicapper. Triple course and distance winner Halcyon Days has also slipped to a dangerous mark and is feared most.
In a race full of intertwining form lines, the vote goes to BOLLIN ACE, who finished a place in front of Cybalko at Wetherby last time and is still well treated on his very best efforts, including over course and distance. Cybalko again rates a serious threat, and among others to consider are the strong travelling Up Helly Aa King and Well Above Par, who creeps in at the foot of the weights.
Sandy Thomson’s STORM NELSON (NAP) returned from a lay-off with an emphatic 2m 4f win on his recent stable debut and, now back up in trip, has the potential for more improvement for his new yard. He gets the nod ahead of Ashfield Paddy, who was placed off today’s mark at Doncaster last time.
Style It Out comes here after two heavy-ground wins, but was treated sternly by the handicapper after the latter success and today’s conditions are likely to be less testing.
A competitive series final may go to OSCAR CEREMONY, who deserves a change of luck after three second places since joining Brian Ellison. Another Emotion has solid claims too, but Event Of Sivola could prove the biggest threat if he jumps better than at Ayr last time.
Irish raider LARGY GIFT could be the best of those with experience as the ground was heavy at Down Royal when he failed to build on his promising debut effort. Bert Wilson is an interesting alternative. He not only has his age allowance, but also Tom Buckley’s useful 5lbs claim and his Devon trainer’s five bumper runners at this track have yielded two winners. Tartan Cookie and Majestic Storm can also feature.
