In an interesting event which should be run at a sound gallop, a chance is taken with the lightly raced LONDON ARCH who should be suited by a return to racing on Tapeta. Mr Coco Bean and Delph Crescent are two others to consider.
With so many unexposed runners this looks really tricky and the tentative choice is AYR EMPRESS, who has shown plenty of promise on her two starts so far and is taken to beat Space Kid and Libby Ami
Although Maison De York and Tamigi have shown some promise and look the best of those with racecourse experience, both look vulnerable to some of the newcomers and the most interesting of those are Spinning Rainbows and TIGERHON. The last-named has the assistance of William Buick and may be good enough to make a winning start.
It would be no surprise to see Roger Varian’s newcomer Kratos attract support on his debut but he makes only limited appeal on breeding so the recent C&D form of NAVAJO SPRING earns her the vote. Tenaya Canyon, Bois De Norton, Kuwaiti Hero and Stonegarth are others to consider.
Although he is having his first run at 5f the unexposed FIGHTER PILOT makes plenty of appeal on his nursery debut and can prove too strong for Bedford Flyer and Country Charm.
An interesting handicap which sees Twisted Dreams and Traveller renew recent C&D rivalry. It should be close between the in-form pair again but preference is for RUM RUNNER (nap), who made a successful debut on Tapeta here last time and has untapped potential on this surface. Cruising and Perfect Swiss are also likely to be on the premises.
From what should be a favourable draw in 13 preference is for STEALING SILK, who looks mildly progressive. Deolali was good value for his winning margin here last time, and he’s the danger.
David O’Meara’s new recruit Roundel has some of the superior form but perhaps lacks the potential of some of these. With Gowanlad absent for so long, the suggestion is RAYYAN, for whom plenty went wrong when evidently expected to run well on his Wolverhampton debut.
Plenty have chances but the suggestion is BLUE DAWN, who probably has the most potential and this track should suit her better than Kempton last time. Northern Charm is next best, ahead of Star Cracker.
