DANZART‘s dominant win in a three-year-old handicap at Lingfield last month is backed up by a relatively good time figure, and assuming stall 12 doesn’t prove to be an issue, he looks the one to beat again.
He was possibly at an advantage after bagging the near-side rail, but he was strong in the market that day and looks progressive. Chipstead found only one too good over course and distance a fortnight ago and is second choice, with Good Earth also of some interest.
A few of these are in with a shout, but preference is for AYLESFORD, who confirmed the conspicuous promise of his debut when making a winning reappearance at Yarmouth earlier this month. He didn’t seem fazed by the drop to 6 furlongs, always travelling comfortably and he remains with plenty of potential. Flame of Freedom, Motorious and Micks Dream are a trio of others open to improvement and head up the dangers.
The improving pair of FOUR ADAAY and Isle of Lismore could dominate this in their hat-trick bids, with marginal preference for the former, who now goes up in grade. But, the horse she beat with a bit in hand last time has since boosted the form, and she remains a handicapper to be positive about up 6lbs in the weights. Rebel At Dawn also warrants consideration on the back of an excellent run at Royal Ascot.
CHAI YO POWER made a promising start to life in handicaps when a fast-finishing second at Chepstow earlier this month, sent off favourite and only undone by residual greenness, taking a while to find top gear.
That run strongly points to him being suited by this longer trip and he can go one better now from what looks an attractive mark. David Menuisier’s Russian Virtue will also greatly benefit from this stiffer test of stamina and looks the one to chase home Sir Michael Stoute’s low-mileage four-year-old.
CABLE NEWS contested a hot race on debut at Newmarket and showed improved form to win a lesser race at Catterick last time. That victory came on heavy ground, and while she handled conditions well, there may be even more to come back on a sounder surface. She is expected to prove too strong for Bascule, who was only run down late on at Lingfield last time.
The form of ARABIAN ROMANCE‘s Yarmouth success has been franked a few times since and she can overcome a 4lbs rise in the weights to make it two from two for her new up-and-coming trainer Kevin Philippart de Foy. Bellazada won a competitive handicap at Newmarket on her reappearance and is feared most ahead of Roger Varian’s Morrooj.
Plenty in with a shout in this closing contest, but GOLD SOUK gets the nod to build on a good effort at Lingfield last weekend. He is going through a good spell at present and can be rewarded for his consistency here. Glen Esk, Hot Summer and Dolphin Vista may give him most to think about.
