An open-looking race in which most of the runners are well treated on their best form. Six-time C&D scorer ROUNDABOUT MAGIC may prove best of them, provided he gets a strong pace to aim at.
Terri Rules has possibilities if the cheekpieces spark a revival, while George Thomas is another suggestion for the shortlist.
The standard is set by LOCKDOWN and he’s worth another chance despite failing to justify favouritism on his last two starts. This step up to 6 furlongs may see him come good.
Redcar winner Bowman and interesting newcomer Amor De Mi Vida look the main threats.
The Coventry was too hot for ARMY OF INDIA, but he has leading claims on the form of his debut success back down in class. Vamoos and Boot Scootin Baby look best of the others with experience.
Newcomers Largo Bay and Light Wakeup need to be monitored for market confidence.
There were clear signs at Newmarket last time that FRESH is getting the hang of things and this is a good opportunity judged on what has been achieved by the others who have run.
Newcomers Starman, Rocky Dreams, I Am The Secret and Aramis Grey need a check and they may pose the chief threats to the selection.
There are clear signs that CHAMPAGNE SUPANOVA (NAP) is about to regain the winning thread. Second choice is Magnificia, who may well improve for this drop to sprinting.
The return to this venue should suit closely matched rivals Twice As Likely and Street Life.
The vote goes to EQUIPPED, who is less exposed than her rivals and may have more to offer back over this C&D. Second choice is Daring Guest, ahead of Tomshalfbrother. A revival from Seprani is not ruled out.
Several have possibilities, including Listed bumper scorer Urban Artist who warrants respect on her Flat debut.
Nicely bred filly FLOAT is taken to build on her Kempton reappearance second and go one better. Kashi is open to progress and Raventree enters calculations for the Gosden yard.
Most of these have quite a lot to prove, but HIDDEN PEARL was only just caught on her step up to 2m at Catterick ten days ago and is a major player again off 2lb higher on this return to Polytack.
Second choice is the lightly raced Walk It Talk It, who kept on well when a promising third on her handicap/seasonal debut at Newmarket and is an interesting contender on this switch to a staying trip.
The other one on the shortlist is Monsieur Fox, who has been placed over C&D and at Kempton in his last two starts.
Red Archangel recorded her breakthrough win at Wolverhampton ten days ago and is respected on this step back up to 1m 2f.
Gold Standard is a big player if he can transfer his recent form back to Polytrack, while Luxford has claims if she can build on her eye-catching third in a similar race last month.
However, it might be worth siding with the lightly raced FOUR FEET, who didn’t get any luck when a promising fourth at Chelmsford on his seasonal return and looks interesting at this new trip.
