Dancin Inthestreet ran a race full of promise on debut over seven furlongs at Newmarket earlier this month, finding only a good prospect trained by John Gosden too strong. She is bred more for speed than stamina and shaped that way at Newmarket, failing to settle fully as she attempted to make all the running.
She had no more to give when headed by the winner a furlong out, so this drop back to six furlongs should suit. She is entitled to improve for that initial experience and trainer William Haggas looks to have found this well-bred filly a good opportunity.
This significant step up in trip should be the catalyst for improvement for Summeronsevenhills, who can make the most of a potentially handy opening mark on his nursery debut. Richard Hughes’s charge failed to justify support when third in a Southwell maiden last time, but he caught the eye nonetheless, and should be seen in a better light granted this stiffer test of stamina.
The application of blinkers could also have a positive effect, while a US pedigree suggests this Polytrack surface will suit. Good Reason was much improved when winning over course and distance on her handicap debut and is the big threat.
Kyllachy Gala ran respectably here on his first start since rejoining Marco Botti and then built on that to see off his nine rivals last time. He has gone up 3lb for that success but scored with a bit in hand and was rated much higher last year, so still has scope from a handicapping perspective.
This is a competitive field but Kyllachy Gala has hit the ground running since rejoining Botti and should go close if running to a similar level as last time. Just The Man got the better of the reopposing Good Tidings in a close finish here last time and they appeal as two of the biggest dangers.
