Yagood has been going off at short prices in similar races all season and has the potential to do so again under Simon Walker. He may well be up to defying a 4lbs rise, but MASTER GREY (nap) is well treated against him, being 11lbs lower than for last summer’s comeback.
He looks the one to be on after a better effort back from wind surgery three weeks ago. The lightly raced Quick Waltz is also considered under Serena Brotherton.
SECRET TO SUCCESS, who’s unexposed as a sprinter and represents an in-form yard, is much respected in this contest.
Given his yard’s modest strike-rate with two-year-olds it can only bode well for Sidcot Swallet that he went so close at 50-1 on his course and distance debut last month, when 40-1 shot Fiji Gold was not far behind in fourth. He’s a player, but Tom Dascombe has been enjoying an amazing run with his juveniles lately and the standard-setting MERCURIAL will find this a bit easier than at Beverley last time.
Although not quite in the Rohaan class yet, HOTALENA has progressed sharply for the visor going on, despite having had plenty of racing last year, winning four of her last seven starts and climbing 20lbs up the weights.
She’s got a job on to confirm Windsor superiority over Rockett Man on revised terms, but can defy the odds again and do just that. Last Thursday’s Ripon second Atiyah is an obvious threat off the same mark.
Cash Machine got up late to win over 6 furlongs at Chelmsford in April and promises to be suited by the step up to 7 furlongs, but he now carries a 7lbs penalty and preference is for WIZARD D’AMOUR – who has shown useful form when placed on his first two starts. Waleyfa is an interesting newcomer for the in-form Owen Burrows.
Mercurist and Van Dijk would both have preferred another furlong, while Vitesse Du Son’s last two wins have come under good tactical rides on Polytrack. The reliable Peachy Carnehan should go well if getting the breaks from stall 11, but there can’t be any complaints about a 3lbs rise for HACHERT after he came right away with one other over course and distance a fortnight ago.
Whatwouldyouknow, Castle Quarter and Nezar all ran really well here last time out, and course regular International Law is also respected now back here. However, preference is for INTERNATIONALANGEL, who was a promising fourth behind Castle Quarter over course and distance last time despite using early energy from her wide draw to adopt a prominent position.
She has a much better berth in stall four today. Reclaim Victory may be best caught fresh and could be the chief threat on her first run since December.
