Brazen Belle was only sold for £5,000 as a yearling but certainly has the pedigree of a proper sprinter, being by Brazen Beau and out of a dam who was also a winner over six furlongs, and she gave her yard a third two-year-old winner from just six runners this season when landing the spoils over five furlongs at Beverly last month, knowing her job well and digging in well to make a winning start. She will likely prove suited by this step up in trip, and with her debut form already having been franked, she is the one to beat with improvement on the cards.
Dark Jedi ended his time with Charlie Hills in a slump but took a big step back in the right direction when seventh at Pontefract on his first outing for Tim Easterby last month. He caught the eye under a sympathetic ride, and he bounced back to his best with that run under his belt when scoring in good style at Hamilton recently, kept far handier back up in trip and comfortably on top come the line.
He looks to have plenty of handicapping scope on that evidence, particularly over this sort of trip and holds solid claims of following up under a penalty.
My Kinda Day ran an excellent race when second on his all-weather debut at Newcastle last month, always going well on the front end and pulling clear of the others, caught only close home by a subsequent winner. He ran to a similar level when fourth at Redcar last time, looking comfortable going the pace over five furlongs but shaping as though this step back up to six furlongs was very much in order.
He remains relatively unexposed, having only raced six times to date, and may be able to find the requisite improvement to turn the tables on Infinite Grace, who finished a couple of places ahead of him last time.
