BEZZAS LAD has quickly found his stride again back with Tony Carroll and is taken to follow up his Chepstow victory. Course and distance winner Good Earth lurks on a good mark and could be set for a revival, while Bama Lama and Spreadsheet – both successful last time out – must be respected also.
Lots of these arrive with question marks against them, so HOMEMADE ANDREA is fancied to defy a 6lbs penalty and add to her much-improved Wolverhampton victory. Pocket The Profit and Winter Siege weren’t seen to best effect when seventh in nurseries last time and appeal as the duo to chase Robert Eddery’s filly home in that order.
MYSTERY MONARCH looks the way to go here given he has shaped well on both his starts and appeals as the sort to really benefit from this step up to 7 furlongs. Astrobrio rates the chief threat on the back of her good recent course and distance second, although a market move for Mark Johnston’s newcomer Marcelo’s Way would put a different slant on things.
In the hope that she goes on the ground now switched to turf, MARIE PARADIS could be the answer to this tricky-looking handicap. She took a step forward when third at Wolverhampton last time and is now pitched into a handicap off what looks a fair mark. Recent Ffos Las scorer Voltaic merits respect, but bigger threats may be posed by Pitchcombe and Doonbeg Farmer.
The vote goes to ADACE, who hit the target over 7 furlongs here in August and wasn’t disgraced off this mark at Chepstow next time. She performed well enough on slow ground at Windsor last year to suggest that conditions shouldn’t be a problem, and this filly is taken to make a winning start for her new yard. Course and distance winner Hedging is second choice ahead of Ascraeus and My Lady Claire.
LE FORBAN‘s debut was full of promise, green early but really getting the message when keeping on for fifth at Kempton a fortnight ago. Sure to build on that, she is taken to improve past the standard setter Whitefeathersfall.
WISPER is well treated and arrives in good order, so she may well have enough to land what looks a weak contest on paper. Angels Roc is likely to be back on his game and is feared most, while Dusk Chorus can’t be discounted despite a poor run in the mud at Windsor last time.
It’s worth taking a chance on SOLENT SCENE, who showed a bit more spark back from a six-month absence at Salisbury. Likely to strip fitter here, he may well do better now upped in trip for this handicap debut. Temur Khan is bound to be popular having hit the target on two of his last three starts – including over this course and distance in August – but he’s unpredictable and Global Wonder is second choice.
