This doesn’t look the strongest maiden and Lovely Breeze looks sure to go well, being a well-bred filly who showed some promise on debut. But I think it might be worth chancing the Richard Hannon filly JOY CHOI each-way.
The level of form she achieved could well exceed what Lovely Breeze achieved on debut, with the first three all showing promise and probably being very useful, while the 5th Harmony Lil won a Chester novice at the weekend. Mark Crehan claims 5lbs off her and if she improves at all from the Sandown run, she should be involved at the finish at the very least.
Currently a reserve, THE JAM MAN would make some appeal here if getting a run on his handicap debut on the flat off a mark of 69. A very useful handicap hurdler last season, he was an excellent second in a strong handicap at Leopardstown off a mark of 139 and that would make him look very well treated here off a mark of 69.
He has shown very little since the resumption of racing, finishing down the field in 3 maidens and being pulled up in a handicap hurdle. He showed far more last time out when second to Poseidon at Limerick and afterwards the trainer said he had been suffering from an infection and that the treatment he was getting was the reasoning for the improved performance. If he can build on that effort, he should run well here.
