A tricky opener to the card but DIFFERENT FACE showed enough on her debut behind the subsequent Windsor Castle runner-up to suggest she can take a race of this nature.
Bungledupinblue has shown plenty of ability and the same can be said for Emirati Dirham who met some trouble in running on his latest start.
Smooth Leicester 7-furlong winner WINE FLIGHT probably has a very good chance to go in again. One Above is preferred among the others who have run, with newcomer Hi Way worth a check given the small field.
Rewaayat reappearing back over 6 furlongs is quite interesting but Griggy is probably a stronger contender given his 2020 record and TABAAHY may prove stronger still with one of his late challenges.
Envisaging, Blame Culture, Agent Of Fortune and Eljaddaaf are four of those to be considered seriously in an open race, but a chance is taken on the well-handicapped MR TYRRELL.
His all-weather career is slight compared to what he’s done on turf, but it includes three seconds from four attempts at this track. Blame Culture is next on the list.
Quite an open race but VENTURA GOLD has not had many chances on the all-weather and he caught the eye from a wide draw behind two improvers here three weeks ago. Voltaic finished ahead of the selection that day and although he had a more straightforward passage, he can also be involved.
Apex King has lost his way, but he would be very interesting on his old form if his new trainer can revive him.
Berkshire Philly took a big step forward from her two-year-old campaign when runner-up over course and distance on her return, but a chance is taken on DAKOTA MOON on his first start in a handicap.
The well-bred son of Shamardal should come on for his recent run at Wolverhampton and he looks sure to appreciate this extra furlong.
It’s hard to oppose AWESOMEDUDE who was impressive at Kempton four days ago and connections have found a good opportunity for the four-year-old under a penalty.
C&D specialist Subliminal may come on for his return here last time out and he’s the main danger with Luke Morris taking over in the saddle.
While Noble Fox is well capable of being seriously involved, as would Helian if he can prove his stamina at this second attempt, the most solid win option appears to be SHIFTING GOLD (NAP) whose big efforts from the rear have yielded wins on two of her last three starts.
