Chris Wall’s filly CAPLA HUNTRESS is not yet proven on turf but, otherwise, her profile is very appealing.
She gained her breakthrough win on Tapeta in the autumn, gave a very good account on last month’s seasonal debut and has plenty of scope for further progress with that recent outing under her belt.
Consistent mare Voi comes here after running well in defeat at Windsor 12 days ago and is feared most.
Kannoor seems likely to take a significant step forward from last month’s debut at Newmarket and is not opposed with any confidence, but HIDDEN SKY already sets a fairly good form standard after her clear third at Beverley 11 days ago.
She might well be capable of even better if more settled in the early stages here. Almareekh and Ice Sprite should also have plenty of improvement still to come, while Godolphin’s newcomer Arabian Romance also looks interesting.
The main question is whether SONGKRAN can repeat his promising reappearance for a new yard on this quick return and if he can, he should take the beating in a race where not many make strong appeal.
Course winner Apache Blaze and Global Style back at 1m 2f are possible dangers, along with Destinys Rock.
This looks a good opportunity for VENTURA TORMENTA, who acquitted himself with credit when thrown in at the deep end on his racecourse debut at Royal Ascot. Sidi Mansour is feared most.
Time may tell that it was a good effort for Tsar to find Lord Campari almost 5 lengths too good at Newbury on his comeback, but the vote goes to ROVANIEMI (NAP).
He didn’t have the race run to suit when third at Kempton. Oslo, in the same ownership as Tsar, is feared most.
With Julia Feilden in good form Sea Shack is worth a second look, despite a poor wins to runs ratio. But, this can go to HARLOW who ran well against the track bias at Redcar last time. Steal The Scene is feared most.
This won’t take a great deal of winning and it could be worth chancing INNER CIRCLE, who will appreciate the return to turf.
Dual course winner Herringswell has possibilities along with stable switcher Danecase.
Blue Venture ought to build upon last month’s encouraging seasonal debut and can probably get a win on the board soon.
But, Archie Watson’s unexposed all-weather winner ICE ICE LADY probably faced an impossible task against a very progressive rival at Redcar last week and can go one better off the same mark here.
