None of those with prior experience has run on softish ground and it looks a race to play carefully, with SAHARA SPEAR given the nod in the hope that he starts better tonight. Hattie C will find this easier than on her Salisbury debut and is worth considering, along with Global Flight, while Strozzi is perhaps the most interesting newcomer.
None of these arrive on the back of a solid recent effort, with a good few returning from breaks, including Chichloui, who holds obvious claims for her new trainer if ready to go after eight months off.
The formerly useful Mount Tahan has a solid chance at the weights, but it’s hard to believe he’s still worth his current mark. The vote goes to SCHOOL OF THOUGHT, who’ll find this level easier if seeing out the longer trip for a yard in good form.
Eponina is just below the mark off which she won over course and distance on heavy ground last autumn and she’s considered, having had valid excuses in two runs back on turf. Meanwhile, Kohinoor should better her comeback effort in a first-time tongue-tie.
Consistent maiden Cirrus seems more likely than not to get involved but BANKROLLED, who was highly tried after a pleasing debut last summer, looks to be starting handicap life on a workable mark.
With last November’s Kempton fourth well advertised since and nothing wrong with his subsequent clear second on Tapeta, MOBAADEL looks the one to beat on his comeback. Thaler, who goes in a tongue-tie after failing to justify support on his Doncaster debut, and Derby entrant Bashosh, who’s likely to want more of a test ultimately, look the two he has to worry about.
Little Boy Blue was well drawn when winning at Ascot nine days ago, as were Global Esteem (made most against the rail) and Spanish Star, who chased him home. Able Kane is proven on soft ground, which earns him preference over Dancinginthewoods, who beat him over course and distance last month.
But, this can go to GAMBON, who goes well on undulating courses and will appreciate tonight’s stiffer 6 furlongs now dropped another 2lbs.
Zookeeper and Commonsensical bring the recent handicap form but, almost inevitably at this stage of the season in a three-year-old handicap, some of their rivals are unexposed and look promising. Top of that category is KELMSCOTT and Handsome, and they may provide the winner.
Didtheyleaveuoutto is an eyecatching debutant in Flat handicaps, given the much higher level of his hurdles form and his bumper form before that. Preference, however, is for GREY FOX (NAP) who scored so well last time out when he finally lived up to earlier potential. Broad Appeal’s first-time-out record puts him on the shortlist, along with recent runner-up Bit Of A Quirke.
