Tough race with more than half the field coming to the races for the first time. ANOTHER HOT TOPIC looks the best of the raced brigade. Provided speed before fading late and can improve off that run. Jery Smaih looks to be well bred while Irus Des Sources has some good bloodlines. Watch the betting with those on debut and respect any positive moves. Forefront was well beaten on initial outing but will find this easier.
CHILL CHAINNIGH resumed in a harder race then sat on the speed and wasn’t beaten far when well in the market. This is no harder and may go one better. Lupy Nero has to take a step out of maiden grade but does look capable. A runner-up at three straight before a success last time. Comes with versatility and can settle anywhere. To Fly Free raced at Listed level retruning from the break. Will be fitter and appreciate the class drop.
INEEDALEADER has to carry the extra 2kg after a dominant win up on the speed resuming. Can roll forward again and prove hard to run down. Zinouyi is still yet to win a race but indicated that he has come back well from a spell. Running on and closing late he should not be a maiden for long. Mixologist looks suited rising in trip after a steady run returning. Suave Story was in the market for latest and was fair in the run home.
FLASHER looks the class runner of the field. This G3 winner in 2018 had a lengthy spell and was good upon return taking plenty from that run after the long break. Genial D’Athon was a winner on debut before having a spell. Faces a step up in grade however appears to be above average so watch the betting for any confidence first-up. Gepetto will go forward and be hard to run down. If securing the lead should look the winner some stage in the straight.
MOONWALK STEP rarely runs a bad race. Resumed in this class at Chantilly and sat up on the speed for a long way. Will be better for the run and can win again. Vasy Sakhee doesn’t have a great overall record but looks to have come back well. Anticipated to gol forward early and looks suited at the distance. Classic Pearl will be up on the speed for a long way and though this is harder than last time may give a sight.
SIRCA could be fitter for a return to racing and looks hard to beat. Sweet Bay was only fair when resuming however finds a trip that looks to suit and might be finishing hard. Rebel Queen doesn’t win out of turn. Started favourite in latest only to fade and just miss a placing. Set to improve and is well placed. Callydini recommences racing with a consistent overall record. Expected to be closing late from mid-field.
SIN DEL RIA fell on jumps debut then followed up with a success in latest. Looks to have a future over the fences. Seeyouinthepark was poor on first attempt and subsequently finished runner-up in a similar race to this. May go one better. Watch for any market moves on those making a debut. In particular Del Rey must be respected while Faldex has placed in both career outings including one on the flat and one over the jumps.
AVENUE KENNEDY maintains a good record. Won back-to-back races last year before a solid placing first-up. Fitter for that run and is the one to beat. Naaqoos Flow is resuming and carrying a big weight. Has been consistent and placed at his past two since a maiden win. Galante De Ferbet had been racing well prior to the break and returned with a solid win against her own sex. Set to go on with it.
ROI D’OUDALLE was a winner before the enforced break. Only fair in a much harder race resuming and is expected to improve off that run. Prince De La Barre has been consistent but doesn’t win out of turn. Finished close-up on resumption in a similar race on a soft track and will take improvement from that effort. Zambezi Flow comes as a maiden who may find this too tough though was good enough upon resumption and illustrated that she has come back favorably. Ready to win soon.
JOLY RISK won by a big margin three starts back. Resumed favorably with a win in an easier grade and with plenty of upside could prove hard to beat. Panis Moon is consistent and doesn’t know how to run a bad race. Produced a solid runner up effort and can step up to this class with a win. Fameck maintains a good starting-price profile though was only fair resuming. May progress with that run under his belt at big odds.
