A tricky race and the market should prove informative. Fiji Gold is respected after her creditable third in a Wolverhampton nursery three weeks ago, while Buying Time ran well for a long way over 6 furlongs last month and looks interesting on his return to this to this trip.
However, it might be worth siding with Richard Spencer’s nursery newcomer LUCKY MAN, who showed clear promise behind a very useful rival in a Windsor maiden last time and looks fairly treated off his opening mark.
Suns Up Guns Up can confirm earlier Windsor placings with Heath Rise, but it may be worth giving another chance to THE TIDE TURNS. His Newcastle third when last seen has been franked since and the return to 1m 6f ought to be in his favour.
An open race in which the suggestion is MAID MILLIE, who made some promising late headway out wide here on her return from a break last month and is now back on the same mark as for her clear-cut win in this race last year.
Recent Lingfield scorer Perfect Symphony is feared most, although The Tron was runner-up over course and distance last week and should give it another good shot. Course specialist Irish Times is respected on his return to Polytrack, while another to consider is La Roca Del Fuego, who is 2-3 at this track.
Top of the list is dual Polytrack winner CHOCOYA (NAP), who finished well to score off a sliding mark back in a handicap at Salisbury 14 days ago and still looks feasibly treated on this return to all-weather. May Sonic didn’t fire on turf at York last time, but this five-time all-weather winner is 2-2 over course and distance and he looks the main danger back in this sphere.
Kingman’s half-brother SUNRAY MAJOR was turned over at odds-on under a penalty in his final run last season, but that form has worked out well and he still has plenty of potential. He’s an interesting contender switched to 7 furlongs on his comeback and gets the vote ahead of Discover Dubai.
He has run well for a long way behind useful rivals in both his starts and is open to more progress on his drop in trip. The other key player is the three-year-old Lord Lovelace, who made a bright start when justifying support at Kempton last month.
Most of these have plenty to prove. Boy George should make another bold bid and is respected, with South Carolina, My Lady Claire, Raha and Disarming also coming into the reckoning. BROUGHTONS FLARE went very close at Salisbury last time though, and gets the tentative verdict.
There shouldn’t be much between Puffin Island and Aiguillette on their recent Lingfield running, while Beepeecee, Jenson Benson, Vino Santo and Equisential also come into the reckoning. TREPIDATION ran well over course and distance last time though and he might prove the answer.
Mystic Dragon has been resurgent with wins at Yarmouth in two of her last three starts and is a big player if she can transfer that form back to ll-weathera. Flower Of Thunder should be in the thick of things again, while Headley George has form figures of 2221223 over this trip and is respected on his return to action.
However, preference is for prolific Polytrack winner AGENT OF FORTUNE, who has been knocking on the door at Lingfield and over course and distance in her last two runs and remains well treated on her old form.
