GWEEDORE has been making hay in Scotland of late, winning three of his last four starts, and impressed again when scoring at Musselburgh a fortnight ago. He’s won on his last two visits to Ayr too, and is fancied to go in again despite another 3lbs rise in the weight.
Three-year-old Ghost Rider is interesting with a promising 5lbs claimer up for the first time, while Coase also has to come into the reckoning.
CHOOKIE DUNEDIN made a winning debut over course and distance back in 2017 and generally has a positive record at this track. He has dropped to a handy mark now and, judged by his latest effort in the Bronze Cup here recently, he could be ready to strike. Big Les can have his latest effort at Hamilton easily overlooked having not been ideally placed, while Blind Beggar ought to remain competitive also.
CAPITAL THEORY has run to a similar level on each of his three starts and that is solid maiden form. He seemed suited by the step up to a mile at Doncaster last tie and can put his experience to good use up against a couple of interesting newcomers in Allegedly and Million Thanks. Mr Alan showed ability in a warm Yarmouth novice on his debut in May, so he can’t be dismissed, either.
This looks a trappy handicap and, with that in mind, it may pay to take a chance on AQUAMAS. A maiden on the back of seven career starts, she wasn’t seen to best effect when fourth at Musselburgh 17 days ago. She started to make headway when meeting some trouble two furlongs out, and she could yet have more to offer at this sort of trip. Kats Bob and King of Tonga are a couple of others to consider.
TOMMY G has rolled back the years this season and is taken to bag win number five having had too much use made of him here last time and been lowered a generous 3lbs now. That was just his second start beyond a mile and, while he clearly stays the trip, he is perhaps more effective at shorter.
Dancing To Win is weighted to go well if shrugging off her latest showing at Newmarket, with last year’s winner Redarna not discounted either in a very open handicap.
CASILLI has gone from strength-to-strength this year, recording a fourth win of the campaign over a similar trip at Beverley last month. He has built up a real rapport with this rider and, judged by the manner of that success, he is fancied to defy the handicapper again and complete a hat-trick. Tim Easterby’s Myristica can give her most to do ahead of My Little Queens.
All five of these have possibilities in an open race, but LET ME BE is taken to add to his already impressive haul this season, having acquitted himself well when third in a higher-grade handicap here recently.
He looks well treated turned out under a penalty and can prove too strong for three-year-old Haveyoumissedme, who merits serious consideration in his bid to complete the hat-trick. However, the forecast conditions are a worry where he is concerned.
