The suggestion is THE FAST LION, who was noticeably short in the market at 9/2 for his debut at Newmarket and ran a very promising race behind the subsequent Solario third.
The previous winners could prove vulnerable with their penalties and it wouldn’t be a surprise should Autumn Aurora have a say on her debut.
A 9lb rise asks a question of MADE FOR ALL, but she was impressive in the end at Catterick and this expensive yearling could well have a good deal more to offer.
Cruising is a danger after going down in a tight finish at Newmarket only nine days ago.
The Defiant is very fast and he’ll make them all go to catch him, but he hasn’t quite managed to hang on the last twice and he might just be vulnerable late on once more.
Amazing Alba and INDIAN PURSUIT were first and second over C&D 11 days ago and the latter might be the answer on this sounder surface.
Fashion Advice could leave her reappearance effort behind her and still has potential after just three starts, while Astrozone, Spring Bloom, Mews House and Nibras Again all have something to recommend them.
Show Palace had a torrid run through here 11 days ago and is undoubtedly handicapped to win, but he would be more appealing on softer ground.
PRIMO’S COMET was just ahead of Show Palace on that occasion and he can gain his third course and distance win.
Plenty with chances, however DONNACHIES GIRL is building up a head of steam and deserves a break after so nearly getting the job done at Chester.
Similar comment applies to Lizzie Loch and she’s feared most.
One Last Hug knuckled down well when recording his breakthrough win at Ayr and he’s a big player back in a 1m 4f handicap.
Melabi has claims if he can find some extra spark, while High Fort didn’t really get the breaks behind One Last Hug last time and looks interesting at this new trip.
However, the vote goes to the lightly raced three-year-old PEERLESS PERCY, who was runner-up over C&D 11 days ago and is open to further progress off only 1lb higher here.
Several of these are lurking on dangerous marks and the betting could be revealing, especially with regard to the class-dropping pair Ghayyar and Rocker Dancer.
Chinese Spirit should make another bold bid, but STRAIGHT ASH isn’t on a bad mark if a change of scenery piques his interest.
Travel Lightly has to be respected after winning her last two races, but she was 10lb lower for her handicap win before following up in a modest classified event.
This sharp test might be rather hard work for her back from a break and preference is for ELIXSOFT (NAP), who hopefully will be ridden more prominently again than at Ripon recently, when she did well to reach second after a difficult passage. International Lion may be the pick of the remainder.
