Due for a 3lbs rise following two good efforts on consecutive days last week, DYNAKITE gets the vote here under Jamie Powell, who rode his first winner at Bellewstown on Thursday. Breagagh has been running well in this sort of company of late and could prove the main threat under another young rider having a good time of it of late. Abogados is undoubtedly well-handicapped and first-time blinkers could see him back on track.
Very competitive and much could depend on how much rain arrives. Magic Carousel has looked a progressive filly well up to winning a handicap such as this, but her form is on soft.
Fridtjof Nansen seemed suited by forcing tactics last time and this sharper track could suit, while recent course winner Trueba has to be respected despite a 10lbs hike. However, preference is for the progressive WEE PABLO, who could still have more to offer, especially if the ground eases.
Several of the likely market principals are drawn high and it might be worth taking a chance with WITHAM RIVER, whose first run was quite encouraging. He disappointed on his second start, but has the number one berth here and that could help his cause against Baseman, Lord Luker and County Wicklow, all boasting solid claims on form but drawn wide.
A high draw is not ideal, but HAN SOLO has the form to win a race of this standard following his third to The Alpha Man here last time. Likely dangers include Petticoat Rule, the pick of Gillian Scott’s two runners, Herodotus, who has fallen to a tempting mark and Howling Wolf, a top-weight with an interesting profile.
A tricky one to call, but probably worth taking a chance on CREATIONIST. His two all-weather wins came at this trip, who runs off a lower turf mark here and goes well fresh. Punk Poet won a similar race here last month and warrants respect, while any support for Mazagran is likely to be significant. Best of the three-year-olds could be Belmont Avenue.
This should be relatively straightforward for the 94-rated Ulster Derby runner-up KING OF THE CASTLE, who has a theoretical 15lbs cushion in this clash with Mcpherson and Shinpachi.
Two handicap runs over 1m 2f suggest that RIGHT TURN, the latest at Down Royal, may be able to win a race of this standard at around 1m 4f. Ballydoyle’s National Ballet could be interesting in his first handicap, and the progressive Loingseior could make a bold bid for a hat-trick.
