Global Acclamation ran well over course and distance last month and probably won’t be far away, but the pick is CHRISTMAS NIGHT.
He was slightly disappointing here last time, but has posted a couple of fairly good efforts on turf this summer and recorded his career-best RPR over this C&D.
Final Attack created a good visual impression when winning over the extended 1m 1f here 11 days ago, but his overall record is much less persuasive.
Vitesse Du Son was very well backed at Chepstow last time and ran a better race so he’s one to consider, while Viola Park has some uninspiring form figures, but is more than capable at this level and could revive.
However, preference is for DEFTERA LAD, whose C&D win in July has worked out and who may be able to capitalise on the return to this track.
He has been absent for two months but other than that JADOOMI boasts cast-iron credentials after finishing third in races won by two Group-class horses.
Who knows what lurks among the newcomers, but Wurlitzer showed enough at Kempton to make some each-way appeal.
Jigs Princess has been placed off this mark on her last two runs and can go well, while More Than Lucky and Silver Nemo also enter calculations.
DENZIL’S LAUGHING ran quite well in a stronger race on his recent nursery debut though, and the drop to a Class 6 could trigger some improvement.
The one to appeal most is RELATIVITY, who has leading prospects on his much-improved handicap debut second on Kempton all-weather last time when staying on in a manner suggesting a step up from 1m 4f would suit.
This is a full half a mile extra so it isn’t guaranteed, but there should be more to come from this lightly raced three-year-old. He should have a big chance if he does indeed see it out.
True Destiny is next best ahead of Stagiaire.
A tight little handicap which may go to the one older runners, POLYPHONY. She remains very much unexposed at this trip after being upped to 1m 2f and winning at Doncaster last time.
Make It Rain may be the pick of the other five runners, who are all three-year-olds, ahead of Dutch Painting.
Date In Vegas is bred to be a lot better than her mark and neither of her qualifying runs was devoid of promise, while Flying West will surely win again and last-time-out winners Cwynar and Our Shakila need respecting.
However, DECORA should appreciate this return to a shorter distance and at lengthier odds she’s worth risking.
William Haggas’s well-bred gelding Divine Consent is open to improvement on today’s handicap/AW debut, while Old Friend will be a tough nut to crack if able to replicate the form of his Windsor third.
However, the most obvious answer is GOLDIE HAWK (NAP) who was an emphatic turf winner on her recent handicap debut and should still have more to offer.
