FELICIDAD LEGADA should be all the wiser for the experience gained on debut and is taken to strike second time out. Reign Of Fire could also come on for her debut spin, while any money for newcomer Where’s Frankie would be notable.
Smiling Annie is a model of consistency and should give her running once more, though for win purposes grade dropper MUCHO MACHO WOMAN shades the verdict. Prance also commands respect as she chases a course double.
MANRESA had New Year New Me back in third when landing the silver medal here last time and wouldn’t be winning out of turn if successful this evening. Our Bonnie Lass is entitled to step up on her debut spin and could also figure.
This looks easier than CHALLAH‘s latest course assignment and he’s expected to land a second distance victory now eased in grade. East Rand and Worthy Turk could put up most resistance.
INSTASTORY shaped with an abundance of promise when second here on debut and sets the form standard on that performance. Blazing Charm is feared most, though a big run from the improving Queensbeccaandjane would also come as no surprise.
DESERT LAW romped to an easy success on his last visit to this venue last summer and should go well if match fit on his return. If the market vibes for the selection are negative, Tiger Dad and Loud Mouth, both of whom ran well here last month, could be the ones to focus on instead.
Mark Glatt’s FRATELLI has impressed on both of his starts so far and will be looking to build on the third place he picked up at the course back in March. He’ll be challenged all the way by Hit The Seam and Kris’ Wild Kat though.
PRAISE AND HONOR will have delighted trainer Jonathan Wong when she delivered on debut at Golden Gate Fields in May and could improve even further here from that run, even if this is a jump in class. Keep an eye on market moves for Gingham and Been Studying Her.
Rounding out the day in the lucky last is our final selection DARK HEDGES. He had his troubles over 1m here last month, but he has won over this shorter trip in the past. He also can find comfort in a drop in grade tonight. More Honor and Little No Way are a couple to keep an eye on as well.
