HARSTON is a half-sister to several winners, and she caught the eye when finishing fifth at Nottingham last month. She kept on despite still showing signs of inexperience and being unsuited by how the race developed. Harston will be suited by stepping back up in trip – her best effort yet came over this course and distance – and it would be little surprise to see her take a big step forward on her handicap debut.
HANDSOME has been running well since entering handicap company, finding only one too good the last twice. He would have benefited from a stronger gallop last time – he is a half-brother to the strong stayer Ranch Hand – and he wasn’t knocked about inside the final furlong once it was clear the winner had matters under control. Handsome, who is fitted with a hood for the first time, remains open to improvement and should launch a bold bid.
PEGGOTY was unlucky not to win at Bath last time, but she can gain a measure of compensation here. Peggoty has shown run-by-run improvement and would probably have won by a couple of lengths at Bath had she not been denied a run when going well. She flew home when in the clear, producing a performance that is much better than anything her rivals here have achieved.
DANCING TO WIN is proving consistent and she can gain a deserved success here. She has finished runner-up on four of her five starts, including at Windsor last time. She went like the best horse at the weights there and was only headed in the dying strides having been sent for home sooner than ideal. That underlines she is well up to winning such a contest and a repeat of that sort of form should be good enough to secure an overdue success.
This is a competitive affair, but CABRINI ran well when switched to handicaps at Leicester last time and she makes most appeal. Cabrini was ultimately fifth on her handicap debut, but she held every chance when throwing down a challenge over a furlong out. She was unable to sustain the effort, however was beaten only a shade over two lengths and might benefit from this drop to 7 furlongs.
MOOSMEE cashed in on a falling mark when successful here over 6 furlongs earlier this month, making all to register a decisive success. He has a 7lbs higher mark to defy, but remains well treated on his old form and is clearly back in decent nick. He should launch a bold bid. He had previously finished runner-up over 7 furlongs, so the step up in trip is not a concern.
VITALLINE proved better than ever when successful here over 7 furlongs last time, relishing the step up in trip having spent much of his career racing over 6 furlongs. He kept on well to win by 2-and three-quarter lengths and could have even more to offer over this slightly longer trip.
