Well-bred dual novice winner SERENA’S QUEEN should have more to offer, so she gets the nod to make light of an opening mark in the mid-70s. Baby Alya and Adelita are other handicap newcomers who are likely capable of better, while Roman Mist and Puy Mary were first and second in a Nottingham handicap recently and are others likely to have a say in a competitive opener.
Some likely sorts among the newcomers and strong market support for any of them would clearly bring them into the reckoning, but the percentage call is to narrow this down to the two previous winners.
General Panic’s second to Navello at Wolverhampton looks a good bit better now, but preference is still for DESERT DREAMER, who had four subsequent winners (and two seconds) behind her when scoring nicely over 5 furlongs at the Craven meeting here.
This looks one for SUNRISE VALLEY who shaped well on her 1m debut, running into a very promising type at Yarmouth. Malathaat has the potential to leave her debut form well behind and she can fight it out for second with Appellation.
It’s likely there’s more to come from AADDEEY (NAP), so a 2lbs rise for his very good reappearance second in a big field at Newbury doesn’t look enough to prevent him going one better here. The reappearing Rodrigo Diaz was very progressive when racking up a hat-trick on the all-weather last year and is the obvious danger if as effective on turf.
Preference is for MOVIN TIME, who brings strong form and has major entries. Magical Land has been frustrating thus far, but he looks the biggest threat to the selection – ahead of Night Of Dreams. The newcomers need a check in the betting.
An interesting race. Strong market confidence behind Top Brass would look significant, but it might be worth taking him on with GRAND SCHEME – who is still in the Derby and shaped as if he’s likely to benefit from this trip when keeping on well for a 1m Chepstow handicap debut success last month.
There should be more to come from ALABAMA BOY after his comfortable Haydock success, so he’s taken to make light of a 10lbs rise. Fiordland (second choice) and Shuv H’penny King are others who should have a say, while there could also be further improvement in well-bred Haydock novice winner Anghaam.
