Charming Kid ran very well at Chelmsford on his recent return from a break and he’s a key player. Mutabaahy ought to give it another good go, but 5 furlongs and a visor looks optimal for HEER WE GO AGAIN. He can confirm the promise of Sunday’s third over an extra furlong.
Warrior Brave recorded RPRs in the 70s in his three runs in Ireland during the summer and is an interesting contender dropped to 5 furlongs on his first run for The Horse Watchers. Mashaan should be in the thick of things again, while Seaclusion could make a bold bid on her switch to this trip.
However, the vote goes to David O’Meara’s well-bred filly RADRIZZANI. She defied a market drift when scoring in good style over course and distance on her recent debut, and has plenty of scope for progress on her second start.
An open race in which the vote goes to Alan King’s OCEANLINE, who has been strong at the finish in a pair of 7 furlong all-weather events this autumn and is an interesting contender upped to an extended 1m on his nursery debut. Leopardo and Little Kitten are feared most, though Holy Endeavour showed a willing attitude when making all at Newcastle and she’s respected back up in trip in her first nursery.
The main danger is Liberated Lady, who finished well for second behind the selection on her debut and is armed with a 6lbs swing in the weights in this rematch. But, SOMMER DAISY showed clear promise at a big price on Polytrack 12 days ago and has claims again, while Karl Burke’s newcomers both need checking in the market.

As was the case on his last visit LEO DAVINCI could be better drawn, but he actually did well to finish so close six days ago and he’s in better form than most of these. Bobby Joe Leg is another whose latest effort can be upgraded, and he’s feared most.
It’s easy to envisage Glory Of Paris turning in a much-improved display now dropped into Class 6 company and fitted with a tongue-tie. He, along with another interesting contender in Stoney Lane, hasn’t fared well with the draw though. Deftera Lad and Vitesse Du Son can go well, but THE MACKEM TORPEDO might be able to defy a 4lb rise for his recent breakthrough success.
Preference is for the comparatively unexposed ROVANIEMI (NAP), who has gone well in deeper fields the last twice. He still has low mileage and may be able to show significant progress this autumn/winter. Fellow three-year-old Harrison Point enters calculations, along with Ghaith and Poetic Force who are interesting back at this venue
A good second to a progressive three-year-old at Chelmsford at the start of the week suggests that ASDAA could be ready to take advantage of what is a favourable mark on his best form. John Jasper went close over course and distance last weekend and rates an obvious danger, while Harry Love arrives on the back of two good placed efforts over 7 furlongs on all-weather and should have a say if seeing out the longer trip.
