SHINING AITCH proved his stamina for this trip when running well at Yarmouth five weeks ago and has a big shout in what doesn’t look the strongest race from a 2lbs lower mark under leading amateur rider Serena Brotherton – who continues to be a real force in these races. Dream Point and Bigbadboy are a couple of others to consider.
Those with previous form don’t set an exacting standard and it may pay to take a chance on newcomer CHIMGAN. He has a sharp enough pedigree and represents a yard more than capable of readying a newcomer so it will be interesting to see how he fares in the betting. So Smart may come on for his Newbury debut effort and is feared, ahead of newcomer Swayze and the experienced Hotline Bling.
MUMMY BEAR got back on the up returned to sprinting when scoring at Newmarket just over a fortnight ago, and was value for extra than the head winning margin giving that she conceded first run. She’s taken to defy a 3lbs rise in the weights and notch a third career victory for an in-form yard.
Shoot To Kill continues to run well without winning, so George Scott’s charge can chase the selection home, ahead of Shamarouski.
This isn’t as competitive as the numbers suggest, and NATALEENA looks the way to go after signalling she’s ready to strike again when runner-up at Redcar last month. She is now 5lbs below her last winning mark and should have too much for Alan King’s Danking. He is still without a win, but arrives in good nick and is feared most ahead of the in-form Givepeaceachance who rates a solid place prospect.
BIG BOY BOBBY showed plenty of promise as a juvenile and his stable wasn’t really firing when he made his reappearance at Salisbury a couple of months ago. He’s worth a chance to find improvement and land what seems quite a weak race on paper. Silver Gunn is worth forgiving his latest run and was an impressive winner at Yarmouth previously, so he’s the clear threat ahead of L’Operateur.
Easily the most appealing of these is ELEVATE, who appears to have been brought along very much with handicaps in mind and improvement should be forthcoming now pitched into one off what looks a potentially handy opening mark based on what she has achieved so far.
Ziggy maintained his theme of race-by-race progress when runner-up on handicap debut at Lingfield. He is feared most ahead of Soller Bay, who should benefit from this stiffer test.
