LOWER STREET shaped encouragingly when fifth on her debut at Nottingham, especially as she was left poorly placed given how the race developed. She is fancied to put that experience to good use and can get off the mark at the second attempt for trainer David Simcock.
SHINING SUCCESS is another interesting runner on the card for Simcock, who has a 24% strike rate at Yarmouth in recent seasons. She met some trouble and then finished well on her debut at Doncaster in June (beaten less than four lengths). Her subsequent absence is a slight concern, but she seems sure to improve and makes plenty of appeal in a race that is unlikely to take much winning.
BORN TO DESTROY has been gelded since his final 2019 start and looks to have plenty in his favour if ready to go after 12 months on the sidelines. He showed fairly useful form last season and wouldn’t need to step up much on those efforts to belatedly open in his account in this maiden.
TILAAWAH improved again when beaten just three quarters of a length at Kempton last time, keeping on well to fill the runner-up spot for the second start in succession. That form puts him right in the mix here, while his record of run-to-run progress suggests he may not have finished improving yet. He can shed his maiden tag with Ryan Moore taking over in the saddle.
BOLLIN NEIL has really found his feet on his last couple of starts, winning at Ayr and then progressing further to defy a 5 lb higher mark at Catterick in good style. This will be his third run in the space of 12 days, but he is impossible to oppose if continuing in the same rich vein of form, especially as he escapes a penalty for his latest success.
KEEP IT BRIEF produced a career best to record his first win at Kempton seven weeks ago, staying on strongly to land the spoils by three and a half lengths. That was just his second start in handicaps and he may yet have more to offer, so a 7 lb rise in the weights might not be enough to stop him in his follow-up bid.
SELECTO returned to form from out of the blue when second at Leicester seven days ago, sticking to his task well to make the winner pull out all the stops. He can race from the same mark here and looks to hold obvious claims if building on the promise of that effort, representing the Roger Charlton yard that continues in good heart (65% of horses running to form).
RED BRAVO could be the way to go here for Mark Loughnane, who has saddled four winners from his last 13 runners. Red Bravo was one of them, scoring easily at Nottingham earlier this month, and he had valid excuses (not ideally placed) when fifth under a penalty at Kempton last time. These conditions should play more to his strengths and can see him quickly regain the winning thread.
LEO DAVINCI has found his form again and, from a reduced mark, looks a likely candidate to take this back up in trip. Field of Vision and Champagne Bob both finished strongly over shorter last time and make some appeal, though both have proved hard to win with.
