Qaaraat made the frame in higher-grade company over course and distance a week ago and has run well for today’s 7lb claimer Harry Russell before but the answer might be A GO GO.
David Evans’ filly fluffed the start after reportedly becoming fractious in the stalls here last time, so that defeat can be forgiven, and she’s well handicapped if perked up by new headgear. Thegreyvtrain and Swell Song also have possibilities.
Today’s drop back to 5 furlong could prove the key to Smokey, who was placed twice over 6 furlongs on turf last month, but LADY FLORENCE drew clear to win in good style at Lingfield a fortnight ago and gets the nod in the hope she can use that success as a springboard.
Independence Day probably won’t be far away, while it will be interesting to see whether the fitting of first-time blinkers prompts another market move for Frow.
Electric Blue appeals as a likely type now she goes into nurseries and recent Ayr scorer Max Oclock is much respected too.
But, there was a lot to like about SILENT QUEEN‘s first run for George Boughey when just edged out at Lingfield so she is confidently expected to open her account now stepping up in trip.
Owen Burrows’ newcomer Ghazaaly looks very appealing on paper but LOCKDOWN LATCHICO ran a big race in defeat at Lingfield on his recent debut and can better that performance if more settled in the early stages here.
Abduction has also shown significant ability and can make his presence felt too.
American Anthem pulled away her chances on debut and will need to be more amenable early, with only daylight on her outside from stall 12; even then MISS NALA is taken to confirm Redcar placings having come home nicely that day.
Have To Have should also be capable of better.
Not many of these can be taken seriously and this will probably be fought out by PRETTY PICKLE and Precisely.
The latter kept on well for third over 1m on her debut at Bath but the William Haggas-trained filly may prove the better suited by today’s shorter trip and, after struggling on soft ground last time, can build upon her pleasing effort at Yarmouth two starts ago.
This return to this track is a big plus for Gold Arch, who was in career-best form when a wide-margin winner over C&D on his stable debut in June and has made the frame twice on turf since.
However, Sir Michael Stoute’s low-mileage three-year-old BOSS POWER (NAP) ran well in a competitive 1m 4f event at Newmarket last month and, over today’s new trip, can add to his earlier Yarmouth success.
A small field but a few who’ve made the running and CAPLA HUNTRESS, who’s progressed well since handicapping, can make it four wins from her last five starts.
Bobba Tee, who went close in a race not run to suit here last time, is a danger.
Embolden is best in at the weights if his official mark is to be believed but he earned it in the mud last backend and showed nothing in two runs back for Richard Fahey in early summer.
Promises offered enough in a Polytrack maiden that’s worked out well since on her debut three months ago, but HERODOTUS is up to adding to his Windsor win if he settles better in first-time blinkers.
