STEEL AN ICON arrives in top form having won her last two starts at Leicester and Lingfield, and scored with a fair bit in hand last time under a well-measured ride. She appears to have been given another good opportunity here, and a subsequent 5 rise in the weights probably underestimates her. Cinzento and Suns Up Guns Up are the main dangers.
CANONIZED has shown fairly useful form in three starts so far, improving a chunk for her debut when winning a minor event at Goodwood in April, and progressed again when finishing runner-up at York last time. She has the best form and the scope to go on progressing, so this looks a straightforward task for Willam Haggas’ well-bred filly. Arboy Will, the other previous winner in the field, should pose the biggest threat.
CLASHANISKA was in good form on all-weather earlier this year, winning back-to-back races at Lingfield, and picked up where he left off when runner-up over five furlongs here last week on his debut for this yard . The return to six furlongs rates a plus and he is fancied to make another bold bid. Glamorous Force and Fard head up the dangers.
Lots with chances, but ROYAL MUSKETEER came from last to first to score at Ripon at the start of the month and is fancied to defy a 6 lb rise in the weights. Yarmouth runner-up Smeaton’s Light rates the chief threat, with course-winner Good Listener not taken lightly either in a very open handicap.
A SURE WELCOME arrives here better than ever at the age of seven and is fancied to make light of a 4 lb penalty for his recent win here with the return to 6f sure to suit. Recent C&D scorer Indian Creak defeated the selection here last month so is feared most and top-weight Edraak is another weighted to go close if able to shrug off a lesser effort last time.
Little between the principals on form and STRAWBERRY JACK gets a tentative vote given he can race off the same mark as when a good third to Buckingham at Bath last time and meets that rival on more advantageous terms now. Eve Johnson Houghton’s in-form sprinter is still feared most, with Lingfield-scorer Kondratiev Wave another to consider in a very open contest.
Those with experience don’t set the bar too high so Hugo Palmer’s Dansili newcomer DANTORA is taken to make a winning start. Redcar-scorer Pertemps Sia rates much the pick of those with experience, ahead of Into The Fire.
