With so many of these inconsistent, it’s not hard to keep faith in the hat-trick-seeking TYCHE (NAP). Beechwood Emily was well behind the selection last time, but she has the ability to turn things around if blinkers trigger a response. Bawaader, disqualified from first in this last year, could also go well.
The vote goes the way of OSO RAPIDO back at the scene of last month’s win. Shawaamekh has found winning difficult of late, but the form of his latest Thirsk third reads well. He’s next best ahead of Glinbury, who may have just needed the run back from a break last time.
Coaxing and Hot Diggity Dog are respected after finishing placed in a similar event over course and distance last month, but a chance is taken on MYTHICAL MOLLY. She has shown her form over 6f/7f, but has plenty of speed and may be suited by this drop back to 5 furlongs. A draw on the rail could also be to her advantage.
Carlisle runner-up ROACH POWER is taken to go one better and make Beltane settle for another silver medal. The selection is nicely bred and ought to progress well. Market support for Freddy Robinson should be noted.
Last week’s Haydock winner SOUND OF IONA remains well handicapped and can follow up. Second choice is Tantastic, ahead of Latin Five and Koropick.
Rain Cap and Bellevue Lad won over course and distance on the same day last month and both are respected, but the answer might be VOLKOVA. She probably went off a bit too hard over 1m 1f on her latest outing and has now slipped to a tempting mark. Avior Star also looks well handicapped now and is feared most, while market support would heighten interest in Strategic Fortune.
One with some potential is the lightly raced filly AQUAMAS, who was messed about a bit before running on quite well for fifth over 6 furlongs at Thirsk last month and now moves up in trip. She gets the vote ahead of Favourite Niece, who lost out only narrowly on Tapeta three weeks ago. Redzone and Iron Sheriff are others to consider.
The three-year-old Newmarket challenger LINE OF DESCENT won a Hamilton maiden in good style last month and there can be optimism he will be better than his handicap debut mark. Arch Moon kept on well for third over 12.4 furlongs here last time and is feared most now up in trip, while Akamanto can’t be ruled out despite today being his first start since finishing second in this race last year.
