TURN BACK TIME showed definite signs of ability and looked unlucky not to finish closer when third on debut in a minor event at Brighton two weeks ago, meeting some trouble in-running, but keeping on well when switched out.
It’s likely that experience won’t have been wasted on her and she gets the nod to confirm the promise of that run now. Chelsea Annie also looks promising and rates the chief threat.
Jim Goldie has his string in fine order at present and GLOBAL HUMOR, who took a strong hold when runner-up over 7 furlongs at this track last time, is taken to go one place better now. He is a generally consistent sort who still figures on a fair mark and can prove too strong for Ballyare. He was never going well enough to challenge at Newcastle last time, but he’s feared most upped to 6 furlongs for the first time in a while.
LANGHOLM left the impression he was building up to something and duly took advantage of a reduced mark when resuming winning ways at Carlisle last month. He has continued in good heart since, running at least as well as ever in defeat when runner-up at Catterick earlier this month – pulling well clear of the remainder with one who had bounced back to form. He is up another 3lbs in the weights, but will continue to give a good account and deny Mi Capricho a course hat-trick.
TOUSSAROK remains with just his debut win to his name, but it is hard to argue with his consistency and he has been knocking on the door of late. He has found only one too good the last twice, proving better than ever at Hamilton last time despite being weak in the betting.
The return to 7 furlongs should be in his favour and he is easily the most appealing in this field. Poet’s Magic gets the nod for the forecast spot ahead of Trinity Lake.
A useful heat in which a narrow vote goes the way of MARIE’S DIAMOND, who didn’t acquit himself too badly in a very competitive handicap at Sandown on Eclipse day and has been dropped 3lbs since.
That was his first start in a handicap, and he could well have more to offer. Shelir went close over course and distance last time and should go well again. Meanwhile, Tinker Toy has a progressive profile if his effort in a Group 3 last time is ignored.
ARRANMORE has made a positive start for David O’Meara, opening his account for the yard at Carlisle last month and resuming winning ways over this trip at Ripon two weeks ago. There was plenty to like about that success, showing a good attitude to outbattle the runner-up in the closing stages. He is clearly thriving at present and is expected to record another win. Course-specialist Tommy G may give him most to think about.
OUT OF BREATH completed the hat-trick in straightforward fashion at Redcar last month and Grant Tuer’s charge is taken to stretch his winning run to four and defy another 5lbs rise in the weights. The main danger could be Firlinfeu, who has yet to hit form this year, but has tumbled in the weights as a result, ahead of Lord Torranaga.
