An interesting and open looking maiden. Five of these are making their debuts with Nasaayim and Jamarrat both wearing headgear they would narrowly be preferred in that order. Of the other debutantes Dergham Athbah also make plenty of appeal on breeding and a bold bid wouldn’t surprise.
Five of these met here over slightly shorter earlier this month and on that occasion WANAASA fared best and looked the most likely winner for much of that contest, however she possibly got to the front a bit too soon and she was run out of it close home.
That was still a very nice debut effort and with a slightly more patient ride, she can get off the mark at the second attempt.
It will be a shock should MOHAWK KING not win this modest race after holding his own in a couple of Group 2s.
Hemmsa has solid place claims but probably no more than that, while Glinbury may fare best of the newcomers
As with the opening division this looks best left to a class-dropper in LAUDED, who had excuses when below his best last time in Group 3 company.
It has to be said that stall 9 isn’t ideal and if there was a surprise in store it may come from either Ibn Arabi or Mutaraafeq, with the former next-best on the figures and the last-named downgraded from an Ascot maiden
He’s a risky one, but HEADSHOT has contested races won by some good horses and it’s hoped he can show plenty more off this low a mark now handicapping after wind surgery.
Have To Have is the standout danger with her recent conqueror here franking that form at Newmarket on Saturday.
Although ANIMAL INSTINCT was beaten at Chelmsford City last week that represented further progress and off the same mark, he looks the one to be with.
Impatient, another debutant on the surface, has to be feared on his Kempton form and Sermon won’t be far away despite his tough mark.
Last week’s clear-cut Leicester winner TORONADO QUEEN must have an outstanding chance of following up in the able hands of Ray Dawson, whose claim takes care of the penalty.
Double Martini could be interesting back from a break and is next best, ahead of Sheila’s Showcase.
This looks very open. TORO DORADO is a course and distance winner who wasn’t seen to best effect behind Bavardages here on his last visit and he’s since run well on turf.
He may be the answer, though the Johnston runner is respected and making a case for him brings Locked N’ Loaded firmly into the equation.
From stall 2, it’s far more realistic for TUSCAN OASIS (NAP) to make all round here than on the straight course at Ascot.
She remains capable of better and gets the vote ahead of Anna Of Lorraine, for whom this return to sprinting should be beneficial. Inevitable Outcome is next on the list.
A chance is taken on USTATH, whose last couple of runs have been more encouraging and he should be winning races off this current mark.
Global Humor is the solid alternative in his current form, while Society Queen could easily revive now relegated for the first time into Class 6 company.
A pretty competitive handicap, but preference is for recent C&D winner FREEDOM AND WHEAT who had a bit in hand by the line last time.
Critical Thinking is another bidding to follow up a recent track success, while Cape Greco is also respected with Oisin Murphy taking over in the saddle.
