Tattoo fluffed the start on her debut, but it was still a promising effort and she’s a leading contender in this field. Katie’s Kitten was also second last time, but she may not be able to confirm that form with FOUR ADAAY.
Rod Millman’s filly looked in need of the experience on that occasion and should be a different proposition this time.
It’s hard to get away from DILIGENT LADY, who upheld the family tradition in winning so well over the minimum trip at Windsor. Star Prize can head the chase.
This is deeper than the race she won at Yarmouth, but ICE ICE LADY did collect with lots in hand and is looking progressive.
Glamorous Force is the other penalised runner after his Leicester win, but Hot Hot Hot was fourth there after missing the break (no stalls) and she could finish a lot closer this time.
The suggestion is SECRETFACT (NAP), who made up nice late ground on his Chepstow return. He’s dropped in grade on a course he likes and with cheekpieces back on.
Pink Flamingo, runner-up at Newmarket a fortnight ago, is closely matched with the selection on a clash from last season and she heads a number of feasible dangers.
Hello Girl has been resurgent this season and is a major player if she can repeat the form of her close call at Thirsk last time but slight preference is for AQUADABRA, who is 2lb lower than for her close second at Chepstow ten days ago and that can be marked up because she had to be switched out wide behind a rival who got first run.
Q Twenty Boy has claims if he can find some extra spark with blinkers added, while others who could be in the mix are Toolatetodelegate and Katherine Place.
Top of the list is triple turf winner APEX KING, who justified favouritism off a tumbling mark on Polytrack on his return from lockdown and is a major player again back in this sphere in his bid to make it 2-2 for Ed de Giles.
Kingston Kurrajong and Poetic Force are feared most, though Buckingham is on a workable mark and has claims if he gets a good pace and some luck.
Another to keep an eye on is the lightly raced four-year-old Tell William, who could resume his progress back at this trip.
There are several in-form contenders in the line up, but the one that appeals most is COMPETITION.
He has done well back on the Flat for his new yard this season and he trounced his rivals over an extended 1m 3f here last week.
The other last-time-out winners Magic Shuffle and Songkran are feared most, though Amor Fati has finished runner-up at Wolverhampton in his last three runs and is respected back on turf. Others to consider are Mystic Dragon and Janus.
Esspeegee turned things around with a comfortable win at Thirsk 11 days ago and he’s respected under a penalty.
Fairly useful jumper New Millennium looks interesting on his Flat handicap debut, while Capricorn Prince has claims if he can transfer his all-weather form back to turf.
However, the vote goes to BLUE BEIRUT, who started this season with a good second off a reduced mark at Chelmsford and didn’t get any luck when switched back to turf at Lingfield two weeks ago.
