The market should prove informative in what looks a very interesting maiden. It could pay to focus on the newcomers, with ECHO CHAMBER – just one of a number who make appeal on paper – put forward as a tentative selection. Positive vibes for Azaheer, Ameynah and Amanzoe would need to be taken seriously, while Saliteh sets the standard of those with prior experience.
TWILIGHT JET has been highly tried since opening his account in a 5-furlong novice event at Tipperary in June, proving better than ever under a forceful ride in the Middle Park Stakes over 6 furlongs at this track last time. He wasn’t beaten far on that occasion and the drop back to the minimum trip looks the right move.
This represents a slightly easier test, and he seems sure to be in the mix. Next on the list is Hierarchy, for whom the drop to 5 furlongs also looks a good move on the back of his near miss in the Mill Reef.
PERFECT NEWS is a progressive filly who opened her account at Carlisle in August and appreciated the step up to 7 furlongs when resuming winning ways in a nursery over course and distance last time.
That was a useful performance from what looked a stiff enough mark of 93 and she won’t need to improve much further to make her mark back in pattern company. The progressive Pearl Glory lost her unbeaten record last time, but emerged with her reputation intact and could pose the biggest threat.
CHINDIT hasn’t quite progressed as expected since his win in the Greenham Stakes at Newbury on his return, but he caught the eye in the 2000 Guineas at this track and has been set some stiff tasks since.
He also shaped better than the bare result in the Celebration Mile at Goodwood last time and the drop back to 7 furlongs won’t be a problem for him. He is more than capable of winning a race of this nature. The Charlie Appleby pair, D’Bai and Al Suhail, could prove the sternest opposition.
It is very hard to oppose INSPIRAL, who maintained her unbeaten record with another flawless display in the May Hill Stakes at Doncaster last time. She appeared to relish the step up to a mile on that occasion, still looking green in parts of the race but powering away from her rivals in the closing stages once hitting top gear.
This looks the obvious next step for her and she remains an exciting prospect. Concert Hall did well to come from off the pace to win a Group 3 at the Curragh and will be suited by this extra furlong, so rates the main threat ahead of Wild Beauty, who was impressive in Canada.
The Charlie Appleby-trained SISKANY has done nothing but improve this term and also brings some rock-solid handicap form to the table, so he is fancied to return in style following a gelding operation.
Melrose runner-up Moshaawer is another with better days ahead of him and seems sure to make his presence felt. Meanwhile, Candleford, Injazati and Boltaway all figure high on the shortlist in another cracking renewal of this valuable handicap.
VILLE DE GRACE looks the most interesting runner in this field. She was well suited by the step up to this trip when winning a listed event at Yarmouth in good style from a few of these last month. Given she’s just six runs into her career, it’s hard to say where her progression might end. La Joconde sets the standard on her recent efforts in Group 1s, but Lights On and Soft Whisper are others to consider too.
