PRINCESS ANNE finished third in a much better race than this at Laurel Park last time and she holds what looks to be an outstanding chance on the figures for trainer Gary Capuano. Another Whim also takes a step back in grade and is likely to be on the premises, while That Is Key will be looking to build on her third at this course 12 days ago in this 1m contest.
EXPERT has been keeping better company that this in his recent races, but he drops back into a claimer for the first time since the start of 2019 (a race he won comfortably). He is hard to dismiss on these terms and the booking of Manuel Franco is a plus. Tiz He The One should go well on his stable debut, while Super Dude also merits a second look.
Those with previous form don’t set too high a standard in this maiden, so it could be worth siding with a newcomer, and Gerald Bennett’s THE LITTLE KITTY makes the most appeal. A daughter of The Big Beast out of Just Passing, it is hard to deny this one’s chances on paper with Alexander Crispin in the saddle here. Oh So Jazzy looks the pick for second, while Single Mom makes up the shortlist.
