With five of the nine making their debut, the market is likely to be instructive. The pick of the newcomers could be Marco Botti’s Laheg, whose sales price rose sharply from yearling to two-year-old. However, the clear form pick is ADNAAN, and Patrick Owens’ son of Ardad may be hard to beat if running to the same level as his fifth in the Super Sprint.
Mayfair Stroll was unlucky at Goodwood two weeks ago and may gain compensation, but narrow preference is for topweight BEFORE DAWN – who went close at Kempton on her most recent start and whose pedigree suggests she will continue to progress. Tadita Twitch’s form has substance, and she’s the other to consider.
Eileendover is a fascinating handicap debutante, but the move up in trip can also suit GOOLWA if she handles what is likely to be different ground. Midrarr has been in good form, however that was on the Wolverhampton all-weather. Quenelle D’Or over a new trip looks best of the rest.
Always a fine spectacle, this year’s Grey Horse Handicap can go to the three-year-old CAHORS (NAP), who has had far less racing than most and shaped as if her turn was near when narrowly beaten at Yarmouth last month.
Recent course and distance winner Devil’s Angel is feared most, just ahead of race regulars Case Key and My Style. The progressive Mitrosonfire has yet to be placed at Newmarket in three attempts but still can’t be ruled out.
Great Ambassador seeks compensation after finishing first of the far-side runners in the Stewards’ Cup and seems sure to go well again. But, FIRST FOLIO was among the market principals for the consolation race that day, only to get bogged down in the ground.
With conditions back in his favour, the three-year-old can resume his progress and bag another valuable prize. Chairmanoftheboard is a solid each-way option, while Premier Power is a fascinating contender after a gelding operation and a break.
There are a few other possibilities, but the most potent candidate may well be the three-year-old TOP BRASS, who took a step forward at Chelmsford and may well improve for the step up in trip. Pledge Of Honour is a five-year-old, but this is also his first go at 1m 4f and he made late gains over 1m 2f last time.
A certain amount needs to be taken on trust with Degree, back from a break over a new trip on the switch to turf. Although she has bags of potential, she is not the only unexposed one in the field. DON’T TELL CLAIRE always did have scope for improvement at 1m and the manner of her Nottingham win suggests this mark is well within reach. Danni California is also considered.
