KING OF CONQUEST makes plenty of appeal on pedigree, being by Lope de Vega out of a mare who achieved a useful level of form in France. He clearly looks the part as well having been bought for 900,000 guineas as a yearling, so it will be interesting to see whether the market speaks in his favour in a maiden restricted to newcomers.
GLENCORA ran right up to her best when second on her latest outing at Leicester, staying on well to pass the post just a nose behind the winner. She is only 1 lb higher in the weights here and should mount a bold bid to go one place better. The booking of Saffie Osborne, who is good value for her 3 lb claim, also gives cause for plenty of optimism.
LATIN LOVER showed improved form when second on his nursery debut at Catterick six days ago. He was beaten just a short head and probably would have been in front in another few strides as he finished with a real flourish. He can race from the same mark here, so it goes without saying that he is still a well-handicapped horse with blinkers replacing the cheekpieces he wore last time.
MODULAR MAGIC resumed his progress with a comfortable win at Musselburgh last month, showing fairly useful form to defy a BHA mark of 75. He showed excellent speed to get across from his wide draw and then found plenty to see off the challengers in the final furlong, ultimately getting the verdict by three quarters of a length. This will be tougher again from a 4 lb higher mark, but he is clearly going the right way and remains a sprinter to keep on the right side.
PRAIANO produced a career best to open his account on his handicap debut at Leicester two weeks ago, briefly looking outpaced before staying on strongly to land the spoils by three quarters of a length. The way he shaped suggests this longer trip is likely to unlock further improvement, so a 3 lb rise in the weights might not be enough to stop him in his follow-up bid.
STRAWBERRI has taken her form to another level on her last couple of starts, getting off the mark at Haydock and then improving again to follow up on handicap debut at Beverley. She was well on top at the finish on the last occasion, forging clear to win easily by two and a half lengths. The slightly longer trip here won’t be an issue, so this useful prospect is fancied to defy a 6 lb higher mark to complete the hat-trick.
GLOBAL SPIRIT has lacked consistency this season, but he is clearly on a good mark, back down to the same rating as when beaten just a neck at Carlisle in June. A repeat of that form should be good enough for him to win a similar event and this looks an ideal opportunity having shaped well when a staying-on third at Thirsk last time.
