The 4yo maiden KENTUCKY KINGDOM holds every chance of opening his account, given that he’s in good form and ahead of the assessor. Second choice is Lady Dauphin, who may show the benefit of this return to 1m2f. Closely matched rivals Lothario and Settle Petal are among others with possibilities. Potential improver Fenix needs a close look, especially if the market speaks favourably.
The only runner with winning form is Bad Attitude, who has solid claims. The pick of the maidens is PROSILI, who is 2lb ahead of the assessor having gone well over C&D last Friday. He has a good chance provided he’s not hindered by the widest draw. Cafe Milano, Blairlogie and Cool To Be A Cat are also in the mix.
The most likely outcome is a C&D hat-trick for POWER OF STATES (nap), who has an impressive record at this venue and may have even more to offer. Kattani and Arij look the main dangers.
The two leading form contenders are PERFECT SUNSET and the comparatively exposed Brunel’s Boy, while Tomorrowland and Mjolnir are open to improvement. Save The Spirit looks the pick of the newcomers.
Lomu went into plenty of notebooks after his encouraging run from the worst of the draw at Lingfield 12 days ago but he wouldn’t be certain to confirm those placings with Verne Castle now that rival has a run under his belt. Either way, this may be best left to LORD RIDDIFORD, who ran as well as he ever has when scoring at Wolverhampton last week. He may well have had a touch more in hand than the winning margin suggests there and he can gain a fourth C&D success.

A wind operation could coax Spurofthemoment back to her best and she’s a key player dropping back into Class 6 company. Indian Pursuit and You’re Cool should give their running but SMOKEY may not have finished improving just yet and she should find this being run to suit.
Highfield Princess should make another bold bid and can confirm recent C&D placings with Gloves Lynch, while Bombastic also enters calculations. JOHNNY REB continues on the up though and may be able to take full advantage of his inside stall.
