Not the strongest of maidens and BELTANE, who ran to a fairly useful level when second at Catterick, may not have to improve to go one better. Choirmaster should have derived some benefit from his debut and looks the main threat ahead of Carbon. The market may prove informative about the newcomers.
Come Quick took his form to a new level when scoring at Carlisle and is much respected but the vote goes to CATCH CUNNINGHAM, who should be suited by this return to 5 furlongs after fading over 6 furlongs at Goodwood.
The booking of Oisin McSweeney is the icing on the cake. Topweight Barging Thru, last seen at Royal Ascot, is interesting after a gelding operation, while the speedy Where’s Diana could have a say from stall 1.
Several of these are course specialists, but the runner with the most potential is the three-year-old ARCTIC EMPEROR (NAP), the only one with no experience of the track. A prominent racer, he could take some pegging back. Casilli is thriving for Joanna Mason and makes the most appeal of the others, ahead of Regal Mirage.
Dark Spec has to go well if repeating his third at Sandown in what was a solid race for the grade, but preference is for MOTARAJEL. He goes well here and can be forgiven his defeat the other day at Catterick where he was poorly drawn over a trip too short. King’s Pavilion is well handicapped if Les Eyre can get him going again.
In a tricky contest, a chance is taken with the maiden IRON SHERIFF who might have got off the mark here last time with more luck in running. Kingson is solid and rates the main danger, with course regular Violette Szabo another to consider.
In a race short of solid candidates, ATYAAF stands out after an excellent second at Bath 11 days ago. Sam’s Call was rather unlucky here on his penultimate start and is dangerous in first-time headgear, while Burtonwood has a good record at Beverley and is well handicapped if revitalised by recent wind surgery. Arnold ran very well when third over course and distance yesterday and will be a threat to all if turning out again.
The prominent-racing COOL SPIRIT has far more going for him than most of these and may notch his fifth win at the main expense of Zoom Star. Gorgeous General would come into the reckoning if ready to do himself justice after an absence.
