There is not much strong form on offer in this 5 furlong Novice Stakes, but I fancy ELEKTRONIC to have enough to win. This gelding has had two races to date, when fourth on debut and a good third in a minor event at Lingfield. He has been off for 170 days since, but should be capable of better and is the one they all need to beat.
Of the rivals, Colombe looks interesting and can be competitive on the pick of her form. Meanwhile, Simply Slew and the once-raced Pretty Shiftwell would come into the reckoning if the market spoke in their favour. However, in this is a low-grade affair, Elektronic should prove tough to beat.
EYRE SQUARE should run a big race in this Mares Maiden Hurdle over 2m 6f. She was a good bumper winner at Wexford in March, and was also second of 14 in a novice hurdle at Limerick on her hurdles debut three weeks ago. She is open to plenty of improvement and can go well now.
Of the rest, Lunar Display for Joseph O’Brien is intriguing. She was down to run on Sunday, but ended up a non-runner. She was a good third of 11 the last day when outrunning her massive 66/1 price, and will be likely to come for that run. But, Gavin Cromwell’s Eyre Square is a promising sort and could have more to offer.
This is a tricky race over 2 miles with very little form to go off, but I’m going with PARISIAN BLUE for Nicky Henderson and Nico de Boinville. This Getaway mare was closing all the way to the line after meeting trouble in running at Chepstow on debut. She is sure to improve from the run and makes appeal coming from an in-form partnership.
The Oliver Greenall runner, The Wild Wild Sea, is also interesting. She showed promise on debut when second, but was disappointing at Cheltenham since. The Greenall stable are flying with two wins and two placed efforts from his last five runners though, and this is his only runner. Those stats do make plenty of appeal too.
