DIXIE DELTA ran well in defeat here last time and was a ready winner at the track the time before that, so everything points to another bold showing. Taylor’s Beauty and Mongol Call are consistent performers and both are expected to be thereabouts.
RETROFIT has a couple of these held on recent form and he is taken to complete the hat-trick in this starter allowance heat at the main expense of Free Music and Knight Disruptor.
WARRIOR’S LULLABY arrives in the form of his career having completed the hat-trick here in fine style last month. It is going take a big performance to stop this gelding, and he gets the nod ahead of Astonishing Tweet and Out Of Patience.
WITT’SDOLLARNIGHT is debuting for a new barn in this claimer and is going to win a race of this nature sooner rather than later judged on recent form. Dreamer’s Point is capable at this level and joins Diesel’s Prize on the shortlist.
SUPER CHARLIE‘s recent form stacks up in the context of this allowance optional claimer and he can confirm his superiority over Be My Shadow en route to rounding off the hat-trick. The unexposed pair Ye Be Judged and Name The Price can also have their say.
WHERE’S RUFUS had Smokin B, Country Summer and Handsome Deputy behind when second here last time and he can confirm that form, while he also holds Songster on their meeting last month. He looks capable of confirming all that form to score. Three Footer won well last time and has to be respected.
LOVETHATCAUSE has positively bolted up the last twice and with very little obvious competition for the early lead here, he could cut loose early and never come back. My Boy Lollipop looks the biggest danger if keeping the selection at close quarters early, while the consistent Mallory’s Bandit is another to note.
Plenty of these arrive in good form, possibly none more so than SMARTY PARTY PAPA, who has maintained a tremendous level of consistency here this year. Dukati edged out Mr Red Sensation for second here last time and could confirm his superiority, while the form of Runarounddancing’s fourth here last month looks particularly strong.
