This looks a match between PRINCESS SHABNAM and Poppy Petal. The latter has good course form, but Princess Shabnam was far from disgraced in a Group 3 at Kempton early this month so gets the vote.
TEXAS MAN pulled clear with another improver when runner-up at Musselburgh 18 days ago and a 3lbs rise won’t prevent another very bold bid. Just A Claim looks the pick of the opposition.
A winner over this trip at Musselburgh in August, ROSIE’S RETURN again shaped well when runner-up at Carlisle (5.8 furlong) 3 weeks ago, not ideally placed but keeping on well to be nearest at the finish. The return to further rates a plus and he gets the nod. Nuance is a player if settling better and along with Animato, heads up the dangers.
Successful at Lingfield in June, SCHEHERAZADE very much caught the eye at Wolverhampton recently, finishing to good effect for fourth having been set plenty to do. She appeals as being on a handy mark and shades the vote. Pound Off You came in for a good ride when successful at Redcar latest and rates a threat from 2lbs higher. One Night In Milan and Tomorrow’s Angel complete the shortlist.
NAUGHTY ANA has yet to win, but this speedy filly did go mighty close over this course and distance earlier in the season and could take a bit of pegging back from the 1 box if on a going day. The lightly-raced Miss Behaving rates an obvious danger, while Jet Set Go is well handicapped if bouncing back to form.
GINATO has proved largely consistent since fitted with blinkers, finding only one too good at Redcar on his most recent start seven days ago. He’s fancied to make his presence felt again under Ben Curtis. Mr Trevor and Stronsay head up the dangers, whilst Emjaytwentythree is worth monitoring also from a career-low mark.
A number arrive in good heart, and it may pay to side with one of the three-year-olds in the shape of LIBERATED LAD. A winner at Windsor on his penultimate start, he lost little caste in defeat when edged out late in the day at Hamilton 10 days ago and he looks sure to go well again. Myboymax returned to a mile-and-a-half and Eye Knee eased in grade/trip head up the dangers.
A winner on yard debut over course and distance in August, MEWS HOUSE has essentially remained in good order since, finding only one firmly on the up too strong at Hamilton last time. He gets the nod to come out on top partnered by Simon Walker. So Grateful was perked up by blinkers when third over 6 furlongs at Redcar recently and holds claims with a repeat. Bluella completes the shortlist.
