Stars In The Night, Wade’s Magic, Quanah and Somewhere Secret are all making their Fibresand debuts returning from an absence, which muddies the waters rather. There are no worries on the surface or fitness fronts with the progressive TRUE HERO however, so he’s fancied to defy a further 4lbs rise and make it 3-3 over course and distance into slightly better company.
Deevious Beau had three of today’s rivals, including 2019 winner Jazz Legend, well beaten off when coming away with one other over course and distance on Sunday, and he’ll rightly be popular under a penalty. BLUE CABLE is a solid alternative if taking to the new surface however, with valid excuses for her three defeats since a Tapeta win in February.
In need of the experience, having been too easy to back ahead of his York debut last autumn, ARCTIC EMPEROR‘s promising fifth has been well advertised since and he’s preferred to dual Newcastle runner-up Kehailaan. The market will show what’s expected of likely looking newcomers Thunderclap and Special Directory.
Hard to rule out any of the seven but MAY NIGHT, who won well on his comeback last week and is due to be another 2lbs higher from the weekend, looks the one to beat. Dajraan, who may have bumped into one when clear of the rest on his comeback, is starting handicap life on a workable mark and rates the main danger.
In-form George Boughey is an outstanding 11-29 with runners here and BATCHELOR BOY (NAP), who’s back on a winning mark and who’ll be suited by the return to sprinting on his third start for the yard, can enhance those numbers still further. The market will help with the unexposed, ex-Italian Fine Wine.
The step up to this trip has brought about sharp improvement from SILVER SHADE, a half-brother to an easy course winner in Glacial Age. He’s been found the ideal opening as he tries to defy an 8lb rise in the weights. Eagle Springs looks a better option for the forecast than Cherokee Dance.
Brandy Station won easily over course and distance at the weekend, but he is unlikely to have suddenly improved out of all recognition after 47 runs and a penalty leaves him with something to find with KYLLUKEY, who’d previously beaten him here off level weights. Andre Amar’s latest effort can be ignore, but his course record tempers enthusiasm.
