Chris Wall has a strong hand with THE FIDDLER and Walk It Talk It and the former, back into Class 6 company, is taken to land the prize. War Brigade is also much respected.
Although unproven over this far LADY MORPHEUS wasn’t stopping when getting on top over Kempton’s 1m and she was good value for her narrow winning margin that day.
Volcano Bay missed a trick here last time when 5lb well-in, but she’s still feared most.
It could be that 1m 4f last time was too far for MARIE’S GEM (NAP) and his previous placed efforts at this trip make him a strong form contender.
If they went hard up front, then assured stayer Visor could easily have a say. Lord Chapelfield is best of the rest.
Perfect Times made the perfect start at Kempton, but the runner-up was well beaten last week and she may struggle to concede 7lb to JACINTH.
The selection ran a pleasing first race when one of the favourites at Newbury and there’s bound to be more to come from her.
The in-form DELAGATE THE LADY is getting high in the weights but if able to continue her good recent work, she looks nailed on to be involved once more.
Molly Shaw is feared most on her handicap debut, ahead of Terri Rules.
A few of these warrant close consideration but perhaps the most interesting runner is RECALL THE SHOW, who chased home a useful rival in a 6 furlongs Newmarket novice on his seasonal/stable debut and could easily have more to offer back over 7 furlongs.
Gallipoli will pose a potent threat if able to match the form of his Sandown run two starts ago and is second choice. Breath Of Joy, Swift Approval and Envisaging also make significant appeal.
Pretty Pickle has been beaten as favourite in her two runs, but she’s got ability and appeals as the type to come good sooner rather than later.
Purple Power and Captain Claret are both capable of better but RUSSIAN VIRTUE might be the answer.
Although he was only seventh at Newmarket last month, that was in a strong race and a repeat might suffice in these calmer waters.
Le Reveur is up 7lb in his hat-trick bid, but he could be the type that carries on pulling out a bit more. The change of headgear isn’t sure to suit him though and he may come up short.
Glen Esk and Madame Tantzy are both respected, but FURQAAN was strong at the finish when winning at Windsor a fortnight ago and a 4lb rise may not be enough to prevent the follow up.
Preference is for GRANDFATHER TOM, who went down only narrowly off the same mark here last week.
Haveoneyerself is the most likely danger, despite a further nudge up the weights.
