It could be prudent to focus on the three-year-olds here and SCHEHERAZADE, who won here in June on heavy ground on the turf course, is taken to bounce back to form. She has disappointed since at Windsor, but that came on a much faster surface.
She could rediscover her form now switched back to polytrack. Sundayinmay is unexposed at this trip and she could improve to play a part, so looks the main danger.
LARGO BAY is just a modest performer, but he’s relatively consistent and has three solid efforts to his name over course and distance, the latest coming six days ago when beaten half a length in third. This looks his easiest assignment for some time, and he is expected to take advantage and open his account. Dream Chaser has some respectable efforts on polytrack to his name and he warrants respect also.
CATIVO RAGAZZO didn’t have much go her way when last seen over course and distance in June, hampered around two furlongs out and was unable to recover. He was strong in the betting that day, and hasn’t had much racing, so he could offer some value in an uncompetitive affair. Carmela Soprano knows how to win and she’s relatively consistent, so she won’t be far away.
SMOOTH SPIRIT progressed to win in refitted blinkers over course and distance earlier in the month, looking rather ponderous once hitting the front before gradually knuckling down to narrowly prevail. First-time blinkers may sharpen him up further now and, off just a 1lb higher mark, he makes plenty of appeal. Clegane is also a course and distance winner and she’s of each-way interest on just her second start for this yard.
An open-looking handicap despite the small field and EVENING SONG could gain a second career win on just her second start for this yard. She ran well at Newmarket last month, her best form has come on polytrack, and she is just the type her new yard excel with. Party Rebel has looked temperamental but if she finds her best form ,she should go close.
SENECA CHIEF isn’t the easiest to deal with at the stalls, but it is difficult to oppose him with any strength under a 4lbs penalty for his win at Salisbury last week. He’s proven on the surface and actually drops in class, so he is a confident selection under James Doyle for a yard among the winners. Katelli won’t be far away as he bids for the hat-trick though, while Radrizaani has been in and out this year but she could improve for first-time cheekpieces.
