A Gavin Cromwell hotpot was the victim of the same connections on Monday and perhaps KING PELLINOR can get the better of Theatre Of War, even if the last-named has the best form.
A near-impossible turnout of horses here with ratings well up to this class and more, with a volatile market seemingly certain at this stage of a strange season. EARLY DOORS, who was disappointing chasing but seems to need to go left-handed, has a great chance if back to his best. Petit Mouchoir should win this if running his race, while Aramon also needs respect.
SHANROE looks quite nicely in now on her handicap debut and seems one of the better-treated. Song Of Namibia appeals as the type to bounce back, while Bua Boy is also interesting.
This looks a penalty kick for THUNDER DOWN UNDER, who seems to face no dangers only the obstacles in front of him, with nothing remotely solid for the forecast.
Less than inspiring stuff but the one that could go on to slightly better things is the handicap debutant SHANNON FIELDS. Not seen out for 120-days, he sidestepped an engagement at Limerick on Monday due to the going, and with a little bit more of an ease predicted here, the stage looks his to show us what he is capable of. Lord Boru and Mary Fields are the most obvious dangers.
Gordon Elliott tends to do well with his imports and he won’t need to have improved the first time hooded MARIA FRANCESCA a lot, if any, in order for her to come up trumps in what looks a weak affair. Jaunty Velocity has shaped well in the past in more competitive heats than today’s and could be the main threat whilst Elegant Dan is also worth considering.
An interesting finale. Better ground will be new to some of these, including BROOMFIELDS JEREMY, who is a hopeful choice at the expense of Goaheadwiththeplan and Curlew Hill.
