COMPLETELY BONKERS is used to keeping much stronger company than this and can get back to winning ways. Tiz Samurai is a player on his latest second and joins Happy Wanderer, who performed better than his latest form figure suggests, on the shortlist.
Georgina Baxter has her string in excellent form at the moment and R KISS EM GOODBYE is difficult to get away from while her impressive Gulfstream success last month remains fresh in the memory. Feisty Chi Chi and Golden Nole are the main dangers.
LITTLE MS BROADWAY arrives on the back of a career-best second at this venue and might be able to shed the maiden tag this time. Imaginary Friend heads the list of dangers from Nagini.
ONWARD represents the powerful Christophe Clement barn and, tried in first-time blinkers and dropped markedly in class, he looks the one to be on. Mukulwitz is another to consider, while Branco Maria is the pick of the newcomers.
Scowling Ridge is interesting now eased in class for this assignment, but preference is for LANGUE LIEE who is holding her form well and got off the mark here last time courtesy of a ready success over 7f. Beachtreasuregirl must also enter calculations.
King Shawn has been running moderately well in better races of late and could go well down in grade, while Newyork Giant has shown some decent form at Gulfstream and is interesting. Preference, however, is for ESOR, who found only one too good here last time and can build on that effort here.
Lady Brexit had Sundrenched behind when second on the main track last time, but the latter was much the better of the pair when they met on turf in January. Classy Of Course has been in excellent form of late and must be considered, but CLASSY LYNN gets the vote. The four-year-old was an emphatic winner when last tried over this trip, beating Classy Of Course by miles.
Bueno Bueno Bueno won from off the pace with a strong late effort over shorter last time and may be a player if he sees out this trip, but CREDIT CYCLE looks the safer option. Robert Raymond’s consistent gelding had Water Patrol behind when second for the third time in a row over track and trip last time and will surely gain a deserved success soon.
UNCORK THE BOTTLE struggled on a synthetic surface last time, but he went close in a stakes race over this trip at Gulfstream on turf prior to that and could prove tough to beat if repeating that effort. Matty’s Express had Valiant Virtue (second), Caramelito (fourth) and Kid Drama (fifth) behind in a similar contest last time and could confirm that form.
