Preference is for SEAFORTH, a course regular in top form and Tyler Heard’s claim takes care of the 5lb this eight-year-old went up for winning at Lingfield.
Liam’s Lass would be a danger if transferring her latest turf form to Tapeta. She may be next best.
It’s a slight worry that the hood is left off Haydock winner AJYAALL this time, but he looks open to plenty of improvement and can give the weight away.
Rocky Dreams showed promise on his debut in a race that worked out well, but the biggest danger could be Fenix, who very much caught the eye when third at Lingfield.
Preference is for BEAUTIFUL NEWS, who has major claims on her latest effort and should progress further judged on breeding.
Likely improver Enoughisgoodenough is second choice. Arceus and Moonshiner can pick up the other prize-money.
A chance is taken on BABA REZA, who got across from an outside stall to lead for a long way in a 7 furlongs course novice last month.
He’s drawn against the rail this time and looks interesting from a mark in the mid-60s, with the drop back to 6 furlongs in his favour.
Boogie Time and Semper Augustus, first and second respectively in course and distance novices last time, are open to further progress now handicapping and head the many possible dangers.
An open race in which the vote goes to Kevin Ryan’s lightly raced three-year-old MIDNITE BRIDE, who has finished runner-up in her three handicaps and is open to more progress on this drop back to 6 furlongs.
Recent Chelmsford winner Bernie’s Boy is feared most on his step back up in trip, though Elzaam’s Dream returned to form with a bold bid over C&D last time and looks interesting if she can back that up.
Others who could have a big part to play are Quaint and Q Twenty Boy.
The hat-trick is on the cards for GALATA BRIDGE (NAP), who has sound form this year and should have more to offer.
Never Alone is 2-2 at this venue, but he’s going into unknown territory over 1m 4f. Bronze River should go well.
A chance is taken on GROUSEMAN, who shaped well on the step up to this trip on his handicap debut at Beverley.
Cheese And Wine is a respected newcomer to handicaps and may be next best while Lord Warburton perhaps resented firm ground the last time and is respected too.
The suggestion is UNCLE SID, who might well have won in the first-time visor here recently had he not got messed about up the straight.
Tidal Racer makes his Tapeta debut, but has been shaping like a winner waiting to happen at this modest level.
