Winners Disco Beats and Crown Princess have penalties to shoulder and perhaps SILENT QUEEN will exploit the weight she receives from them after her promising start at Ripon.
Better efforts from Roydmoor, One For The Ladies and Day Job can be expected this time.
Nibras Again wouldn’t be winning out of turn and he’s officially 2lb well-in but this represents a drop-in class for EAST STREET REVUE and he can gain a second C&D success.
A better run from True Hero could be on the cards back on quicker ground, but he’s not one to trust implicitly.
An interesting race, as four of the five to have run all look winners waiting to happen and the newcomers are likeable.
Despite a tricky draw preference is for PARTY SPIRIT, who ran to a very good level on her debut and, for a filly bred to stay so well, this stiff finish should be up her street. Dromquinna could be the one she has to beat.
An open race. KENTUCKYCONNECTION is no win machine, but he’s a consistent operator in these Class 5 handicaps and looks sure to give his backers another run for their money.
Majalaat is an interesting handicap debutant with his latest Leicester form looking all the better now, while Keepup Kevin is another likely to feature.
Some of these are potentially well handicapped but with a good deal less to prove is LE CHIFFRE, who has won both his handicaps decisively and he could still be ahead of his new mark.
Bottom Bay, now tongue tied, can be the danger.
The safest option is GLOBAL EXCEED (NAP), who comes here in better form than most and shapes as though this stiffer test of stamina might bring him on some more.
Imperial Focus was in form prior to a luckless run at Hamilton and he’s second choice.
Burguillos will take a lot of beating if replicating his Leicester form, but that was only his third win in 33 starts, so he’s not one to be taking short odds about.
He’s taken on with BROCTUNE RED, whose latest Doncaster conqueror was making it three wins from five starts for Michael Appleby.
This is quite interesting for a Class 6, but Newmarket raider EAST END GIRL was eye-catching in her final qualifying run at Kempton and is ready for this step up in trip on her handicap debut.
The obvious danger is last week’s course second Kitten’s Dream, who is wisely turned out quickly with a 6lb rise imminent.
An interesting handicap which offers STONIFIC the chance to follow up last week’s C&D victory under a 4lb penalty.
He seemed to improve for the step up in trip and can collect again at the main expense of Snookered, who shaped well over 1m 5f last time and boasts winning form on the all-weather over this trip. Others likely to get involved include Doctor Cross, Blazon and Reassurance.
