Relative Choice won tidily at Wolverhampton last month and a 4lb rise shouldn’t be beyond her so she’s high on the list, despite the widest draw. Isabella Swan is an interesting nursery debutante but PORFIN has had excuses in both nursery runs and can take advantage of his drop in the weights. Lynns Boy is another who could still do better.
Back on AW Perfect Times could return to her debut form but she won’t find it easy trying to concede weight to some interesting opponents. Carnation, Electric and Mejthaam are well-bred newcomers, while Auroch and Spirit Of The Bay were both backed on debut and can leave their initial effort behind. SHOW YOURSELF shaped nicely at Yarmouth though and she gets the verdict.
A small field but a fascinating race all the same. Good Birthday is down to a good mark, Summeronsevenhills caught the eye last time and Stamford Raffles might get an easy time of things up front. Win O’Clock is officially 7lb well in after his facile win at Sandown last time but OMNIVEGA looked ahead of his mark when fourth from a very unpromising position at Ascot and he can resume winning ways.
Pinnata goes well around here and ought to make a bold bid but there are some interesting 3yo opponents. Impatient should be a player back at 1m but ITKAANN (nap) won with plenty to spare at Salisbury on his handicap debut and might be up to defying his hike up the handicap.
The market will no doubt reveal plenty here with five newcomers on show, and of those Mark Johnston’s Dansili colt Andonno and Hughie Morrison’s The Gurkha gelding Pride Of Nepal appeal most on paper. However, SAMMY SUNSHINE already has experience on her side and sets a good standard on the form shown when fifth recently at Goodwood.
Across The Nile and The First Hurrah are interesting newcomers but MISHAL STAR made a very promising start to her career at Newbury and she ought to be more streetwise with that under her belt.
Comeatchoo should make a bold bid from the inside stall, while each of the three Tony Carroll-trained runners have something to recommend them. Wild Flower is feared on her first run for a new stable but BADGER BERRY is still low mileage for a 4yo sprinter and can show the benefit of his recent return to action.
Having shaped with promise over an inadequate trip here last month, SEA OF MYSTERY is taken to return to winning ways, possibly at the main expense of Life Matters. Conkering Hero has a C&D success to his name and would be a threat to all off this mark if returning to form.
