Wee Loch Lass has shown more than enough to suggest she can win a race of this nature at some stage while Province and Bungley have similar profiles, having displayed pleasing improvement to be placed on their second starts. However, QWICKEN bumped into a very heavily backed newcomer (who is due to run in a Listed race tonight) when runner-up on her debut and might be the answer. Province is second choice.
Aleezdancer trounced his rivals in very good style at Beverley and can’t opposed with any confidence but he may find it tough to concede 7lb to MATTICE, who ran a big race from the front when second in what was almost certainly a useful York maiden two weeks ago. That pair sets a very good standard for the newcomers to aim at.
Out Of Sight ran a big race in defeat on his seasonal debut but the suggestion is LISTEN AGAIN, who proved she’s effective on ground slower than good when making the frame in two 1m nurseries in September and promises to be suited by today’s stiffer stamina test. Sir Mark Prescott’s handicap debutant Duke Of Prussia seems very likely to better his poor 2yo AW form, while Greyed First can also feature if suited by today’s switch to turf.
The debut effort of INJAZATI against a couple of useful and more experienced rivals sets a decent standard and he is fancied to get off the mark this time. The other raced ones haven’t achieved much yet so the biggest threat could come from one of the newcomers, with Praiano slightly preferred to Bluewater Lady.

The most persuasive option is HELM ROCK, who was nicely in command in the closing stages over 7f here recently and now bids to overcome a 6lb penalty. Iron Sheriff took an encouraging step back in the right direction when sixth over 6f last month and ought to be seen to better effect over today’s trip.
There could be considerable further improvement to come from Sir Michael Stoute’s lightly raced 4yo CROSSING THE BAR (nap), who was returning from an 11-month absence when placed in a Bath novice two weeks ago and now moves up in trip for his handicap debut. Francisco Bay also tackles a new trip and is feared most. Snookered was ahead of Magna Moralia when second at Nottingham this month and is next on the list.
Ed De Giles’s filly LUCKY DRAW built up a commanding lead from a fairly early stage and never really looked like being caught at Lingfield a week ago. Effectively only 2lb higher under her penalty here, she’s 6lb ahead of the handicapper and can complete a quick double. Sir Charles Punch has found it difficult to get a win on the board but he comes here after two good efforts and is earmarked as the main danger.
