It’s tempting to assume that BRILLIANT BLUE was flattered by his latest, much-improved effort at Newbury, given that he was sent off at 200/1. However, if that form is taken at face value (winner of that novice was third in a Group 3 on Saturday) he’ll surely have every chance here, despite the presence of several choicely-bred newcomers, including Tranquil Night, Glam de Vega and Salvator Mundi.
Martyn Meade boasts a very respectable strike rate with two-year-olds this season and SIKORSKY wouldn’t need to be out of the ordinary to make a winning debut. The Dubawi colt ticks plenty of the right boxes on paper and the hint should be taken if he’s strong in the betting.
Kape Moss shaped well on debut at Newcastle and is feared most ahead of fellow promising types Al Barez and Anniversary Belle.
Ready preference is for REINA DEL MAR, who wasn’t seen to best effect when third to a big improver at York when last seen in July. She remains open to improvement and makes plenty of appeal off the same mark here. Sayf Al Dawla made it third time lucky at Salisbury last month and he also possesses potential, but Jawhary’s recent effort on the all-weather was solid and he is second choice.
MEADOW SPRITE arguably shaped better than the bare result when third to She’s No Angel at Newcastle and, armed with a handy pull at the weights here, Hughie Morrison’s charge is taken to come out on top this time. She’s No Angel should give another good account all the same, and she is next on the list ahead of Carmela Soprano and recent Ffos Las winner Beryl Burton.
Assuming all is well following a year off, PRECISELY should prove a tough nut to crack. Indeed, she looked one to follow when bagging a couple of Bath handicaps in the latter stages of last season and may well have more to offer this year and beyond. Eased slightly in class off a reduced mark, Fashion Free is expected to emerge as the main danger. Goddess of Fire is best of the rest.
Another chance is given to GLASSTREES, who wasn’t seen to best effect at Chelmsford last time and still looks fairly treated. Alaskan Wind and Full of Beans rate the principal dangers.
SPECIAL MAYSON has looked a different proposition of late and can score again. Priscilla’s Wish and Cabrini head the list of dangers.
TRUE BELIEF is far from straightforward, but is more than capable of winning a race of this nature. Imperial Butterfly and Jack Ryan can also make their presence felt.
