French Polish is a typically well-bred filly from Normandie Stud, and looks very interesting making her handicap debut from a lowly mark. She was too keen when disappointing on her first start for Roger Charlton at Lingfield in August, but shaped with much more encouragement when hitting the frame in a maiden at this course earlier this month. That came over shorter, but the way she stayed on in the closing stages suggests she is well worth a try at a mile and a half, and she is fancied to progress past some more exposed types here.
Arion Fox cost 300,000 guineas as a yearling, and she showed improved form on her all-weather debut at Lingfield last time, while also leaving the impression that she is capable of better still. Arion Fox didn’t get the clearest of runs on that occasion, held up after a slow start and meeting trouble on the home turn, having to be pushed along after and finishing with running left. She is bred to be better than an opening mark of 67, and this good-looking filly is expected to progress further now sent handicapping for leading connections.
Lynns Boy has attracted support on a couple of occasions, and ran about as well as could be expected when finishing just better than midfield in a valuable sales race at Newmarket last time, particularly as he lost momentum on the track when still in contention. The return to the all-weather will suit now, and he is well up to winning races from this sort of mark, so should prove hard to keep out of the places.
