This could revolve around the in-form pair in Glamorous Breeze and LETHAL BLAST. The former chased home a big improver in her bid for a double at Bath and still has potential after only eight starts. However, preference is for Lethal Blast, who made it four wins from her last nine runs when dominating course and distance last time and a 3lbs rise for that clear-cut success looks fair.
SHERDIL has shown clear promise in both his runs and is feared most, though Scattering had an excuse on soft ground last month and is a key player if he can confirm the promise of his debut effort. Sir Henry Cotton, Codify and Locke are others who could make a serious impact. Meanwhile, there are also some newcomers who need watching in the market.
Top of the list is the highly progressive three-year-old TWILIGHT MADNESS (NAP), who made it 3-3 in handicaps with his emphatic win at Newmarket last month and still looks feasibly treated off his revised mark. The main danger is dual course winner Yimou, who has finished runner-up in his last two starts and should make another bold bid. Society Lion is best of the rest.
Teona was disappointing in the Oaks, but this very well-bred filly still has untapped potential and is respected switched to a Listed event on her first run since. 2018 winner Desert Encounter is a key player if he can bounce back from a blip at Newmarket, while Fox Tal looks interesting after his unlucky third in a Group 3 at Goodwood.
However, the vote goes to the William Haggas-trained DOMINO DARLING, who is still lightly raced and resumed her progress when going very close in the Galtres Stakes last week.
This would appear to represent a decent opportunity for SOLID STONE to add to his 1m course Listed win in the spring. Sir Michael Stoute’s prominent racer has remained in form since and could be able to dictate in this small field. Last month’s York Group 2 scorer Bangkok can follow him home.
This is a tight call between the two recent breakthrough winners Noble Patron and POWER STATION. The former stayed on strongly for a comfortable success over course and distance last month, but preference is for Richard Hannon’s gelding – who raised his form to a new level with a dominant display at Salisbury last week. Another to consider is Sun Festival, who ran well to finish third at Yarmouth last month and has possibilities if he can build on that for his new yard.
An open race in which the suggestion is MOUNT OLYMPUS, who is still unexposed and didn’t get any luck when a promising fourth behind a big improver in a similar race at Ripon two weeks ago.
Course and distance winner Lisdarragh has gone close back here in his last two starts and he’s feared most, ahead of Miss Roulette who made a bold bid over an extended 1m 4f last time. Others who could have a big part to play are recent all-weather winner Largo Bay and Michael Bell’s Crystal Guard.
