Confirmed front-runners Makyon and Maximum Risk are both drawn to attack in a race in which few can be ruled out. Clotherholme could get this run to suit, but he’s a maiden who doesn’t convince and the vote goes to LAGENDA.
He usually comes to the boil around this time of year, with three of his five wins coming in July, and who likes it here. Dual course and distance winner Glengarry is another to consider.
The Grey Lass made a fair debut at a big price, while Hot Love showed much more in headgear 10 days ago. But, both efforts came in sellers and either of the newcomers, including Fille De La Lune, one of three being saddled by Karl Burke, wouldn’t need to be anything special.
Otherwise, CHIEF’S WILL is given the chance to atone for his odds-on blowout at Carlisle a fortnight ago now sporting headgear for a yard with a 4-6 record with two-year-olds here.
Tommy G made it 3-6 over this trip round his beloved Ayr last time, but will need some luck from the outside stall if he’s to complete the four-timer off a 4lbs higher mark. Front-runner Ventura Rascal seems set to go well again from a handy stall, but a chance is taken on MARKAZI. He was rated in the high 80s this time last year and who will appreciate the return to this trip back in headgear.
Lady Ziana’s recent improvement has come for the switch to front-running over 1m 2f and the emphasis will be more on speed over this trip round here. Sugarpiehoneybunch goes on the shortlist, but STRANGERONTHESHORE (NAP) has slid to an attractive mark off the back of two luckless efforts over shorter round Carlisle and is preferred.
Having shaped with considerable promise at Ripon on his return from a long break, SAM’S CALL is taken to get off the mark, with course specialist Economic Crisis also expected to go well.
Although his three rivals have often made the running, the return to 1m 6f round here would now have to be a concern for Let Me Be in a small field as he bids to make it six wins from seven runs this season. Sarvi could have done without the drying weather, so perhaps SILVER SHADE, who got upset at the start last time, will be able to bounce back.
A brother to two winning sprinters for the yard and a half-brother to another, RORY looks to be starting handicap life on a workable mark from a handy draw and could be worth chancing. The progressive Morty is an obvious danger from the stall next door, along with Canaria Prince, whose dam improved with racing for the yard.
