Warren Road won’t have to be a world-beater to make a winning start at this level, but he’s visored for his debut and it’s disconcerting that he is beginning his career in a seller. Chaotic Carter should leave his debut effort well behind him in time, but ACCACIA showed enough on her penultimate start to think she could play a role at this level. She can reverse latest Goodwood placings with Flash Betty over the extra furlong.
Ensyaaby sets the standard and his two best runs have come at this track, so he needs serious consideration – especially given that new headgear could perk him up. He has been expensive to follow though, and this trip looked a bit sharp last week, so he could be worth taking on.
Motorious and the newcomer Haidarah are considered, but HELLO ZABEEL may be the answer. He fluffed his lines on slow ground at Doncaster last time, however his debut effort was very promising and he still has time on his side.
Hafez was only just caught over a similar trip at Lingfield on Monday and is a big player if he can repeat that form. Reams Of Love looks interesting on his switch to this stiffer stamina test, while the unexposed handicap newcomer Dolphin needs watching in the market.
However, the vote goes to Michael Bell’s progressive gelding TRUE COURAGE, who beat a clear second when justifying support in smooth style at Ripon last month and a 6lbs rise for that win looks manageable.
A hat-trick looks on the cards for JEWEL IN MY CROWN (NAP) after clear-cut successes at Brighton and Nottingham. Portfolio may provide the sternest opposition, although Unfoolish is unexposed and may show some improvement now handicapping.
If Corvair breaks on terms, then he’ll have strong claims judged on his penultimate effort at Newmarket. He can fluff the start though, and it may pay to take him on with THE ATTORNEY.
His only win came when long-odds-on for an all-weather novice, but his latest fourth at Goodwood suggested he was operating on a very handy mark. Captain Cooper could yet fulfil the promise of his Newcastle win, while Dance Fever still isn’t fully exposed.
Anjella wasn’t winning out of turn last time and she should make a bold bid despite the rise in class. Cream Of The Crop could bounce back off a reduced mark now returning to sprinting, but the unexposed handicap debutantes Love Sensation and I’M MABLE both make some appeal.
The selection shaped much better in a hot Windsor novice last time and could be the answer with her rider’s claim very useful.
Kenstone might be the pick of the older horses after a promising return to action at Chepstow, but this may be best left to the three-year-olds. Katie’s Kitten might find dominating this bigger field a bit more demanding, but she’s 2-2 over course and distance and shouldn’t be underestimated.
CLIFFCAKE was full value for his win at Wetherby on last month’s stable debut though (Katie’s Kitten only fifth), and he may be able to defy the 4lbs rise in the weights.
