A trappy event in which Too Shy Shy, Medieval and Ahdab all have something to recommend them. CONSCIOUS got his act together at Kempton last month though and he may be able to defy a 6lb rise on his first run for new connections.
Andonno has achieved the most so far and he’s a solid contender, while Dansing Bear was very green here seven weeks ago and has plenty more to come. Hiroshi and LEGENDARY DAY dead-heated for fourth behind an impressive winner at Chelmsford 12 days ago and Hughie Morrison’s juvenile could well take a sizeable step forward with that initial experience under his belt.
With Code Of Silence looking nothing special it could be Don’t Look Back who fares best of those with experience, for all that he’s been off for 80 days. However, it may pay to chance one of the newcomers and despite attracting only minor interest at the sales ABSOLUTE SCENES does hold a Group 1 entry. She also kicks off with her stable going well.
Lynns Boy and Pockley are capable of better, while Shalaa Asker won well at Chelmsford last time and can’t be ignored on her nursery debut. COLOMBE (nap) is better off at the weights than when finishing ahead of Shalaa Asker on her debut, though, and she’s left the impression this sharp test should be right up her street.
Cappananty Con ought to make another bold bid from the inside stall, while Brenner Pass won’t need much improvement for the headgear to get involved again. Veteran GREEN DOOR should be at peak fitness after a couple of runs back from a break though and he may be able to exploit his lowly mark.
Beholden looked a stayer in the making when finishing a very creditable second over 1m4f at Chepstow recently and there’s a good chance he will handle this surface, given that two siblings won on Polytrack. A few of these can be given a chance on their best staying form, not least CASA COMIGO who has won both his starts over C&D and has his first run here since scooting clear in this race 12 months ago.
Unless there is support for Desert Camp it is probably best to focus on Taameen and TAQAREER. Taameen looked sure to benefit from his debut run but Taqareer’s recent Chelmsford second sets a high standard to aim at.
Several worth considering, with preference for QUEMONDA who has a good record over C&D and showed she was still in solid form when fourth on turf last time. Zeimaam is a big danger if the new headgear does the trick, while Crimewave and Libretti are others who deserve a place on the shortlist
