GLAMOROUS ANNA is blessed with lots of ability, but also her fair share of attitude and this talented runner looks well capable of producing a solid effort of a mark of 90 – if they can just sort out her wayward tendencies.
Cheek pieces are also added to get her to focus and keep straight, but she shouldn’t have to make her own running with lots of pace in this contest.
A cracking three-year-old handicap with lots of improving types and some unknown quantities. GROUP ONE POWER is a little more exposed than a few of these, but has some solid class form in the book and notably went close at Royal Ascot in the King George V.
Dropping back a quarter of a mile looks ideal as he can be a touch keen and we have been gifted a rail position.
We put LAUDED up as a big runner at the July meeting, but he came out because of soft ground. That added time won’t have done him any harm whatsoever as he’s a big powerful imposing sort and is going to get better as the season progresses.
The Tom Dascombe yard went close with a juvenile earlier in the week and this horse can get them on the scoresheet.
Another belter of a contest with four runners backing up straight out of the Derby. ENGLISH KING wasn’t knocked about in the closing stages when his chance of winning had gone and he can only benefit from that outing.
He has that potent combination needed to be a top-class performer, and that’s stamina with a change of gear late on in a race.
NAZEEF just keeps on producing the goods as she continues to climb up the ladder, never winning by wide margins but always just doing enough in the heat of battle.
She steps up and distance for today’s assignment, but a look back at her win last time at Newmarket that would suggest this may bring about another pinch of improvement. With the French Oaks winner in here, we are guaranteed to go off at a decent price.
CALCUTTA CUP made his debut at a very high level in Listed Company at Epsom. He bounced out of that with a solid fourth at Newbury behind some very smart sort with lofty ambitions and looks to have been given a more than fair mark of 77.
The trainer Andrew Balding has a great strike in this type of contest at this venue too.
Nothing went right for her at Newmarket’s July course on debut where she dwelt at the start and then got bumped just as she started to make progress a furlong out. Teodolina was an 18/1 chance in the market that day and with that run under her belt and the step up to 7f sure to suit, she can go two places better than HQ and get her head in front on the jam stick.
WINTER POWER will be the last leg of many an accumulator on the day’s racing. She came with a big reputation for her debut at Newcastle but couldn’t come up with the goods.
She hit the crossbar again on her second start, however she made up for that with a very taking victory at Redcar last time and basically won at a canter. She’s going to be short, but trainer Tim Easterby doesn’t send them south just for the fresh air.
