NIGHT NARCISSUS is speedily-bred and duly offered plenty to work on when third on her debut at Haydock last month, faring best of those ridden prominently in blustery conditions. Less than a length and a half split the first four at the line, and the form received a boost when the one who completed the frame won her next start.
Night Narcissus will attempt to do likewise here and rates very much the one to beat according to Timeform’s weight-adjusted ratings, especially as that initial experience is expected to bring about plenty of improvement.
BOASTY appeals as an interesting each-way bet with his reappearance run at Lingfield under his belt. That was his first start for 13 months and he looked rusty, starting slowly and finding himself with plenty of ground to make up. The way the race developed from there just didn’t give him a chance of getting back into it, keeping on at the one pace under mainly hands-and-heels riding.
He remains with potential under the right conditions, though, and is worth the chance to prove himself better than a BHA mark of 62 now taking on mostly exposed rivals.
JUAN LES PINS is putting together a good record at Kempton, with his best efforts to date all coming at this venue. His first victory came over this course and distance in September, staying on strongly to win by half a length, and he produced a career best despite finding one too good over seven furlongs here last time.
He tanked through that race and was only pegged back late on by one who raced more efficiently, suggesting that a strongly-run six furlongs will prove to be his optimum conditions. He should get that here and is one to be positive about from only 3lbs higher in the weights, representing the Ed Walker yard that continues in good heart (72% of horses running to form).
