This race looks no stronger than the one OH HERBERTS REIGN won at York and he can follow up off a 6lb higher mark. Find looks the main danger after an excuse emerged for his disappointing run here at the Leger meeting. A gelding operation could unlock some improvement in Baikal, and he merits respect too.

The best form is represented by AIMING HIGH and Moon De Vega, preferred in that order, but they only tentatively head the shortlist as there are several interesting debutantes in the field, notably Glory And Gold, Big News and the Gosden fillies Nashwa and One Evening. Any positive market moves should be strongly heeded.
Sandown runner-up VELAZQUEZ may have found the ground too fast at York last time and holds leading claims judged on his previous form. The well-bred Roger Varian-trained newcomer Medrara is feared most, while the once-raced pair Beluga Gold and Jimi Hendrix are others to consider. At likely bigger odds, Dougies Dream is an interesting contender.
This is a less competitive race than FRESH has been accustomed to this season and it could be a good opportunity for the Wokingham runner-up to return to winning ways. Music Society got no run when mid-division over 5f at York recently and is feared most now back up to his optimum trip. Air Raid and Chairmanoftheboard arrive in fine form and could also be in the mix.
The three at the top of the weights make the most appeal. FAVORITE MOON (nap) has been in cracking form recently and looks the one to beat. Postileo is well handicapped, though, and they won’t want to give too much rope to the characterful and highly talented 9yo Not So Sleepy.
While Knowwhentorun made up a lot of ground over 1m last time, preference is for the lightly raced pair EIKONIX and Titian, who are having their first and second runs respectively in handicaps. The drop in class catches the eye with Alba Rose on this first run since May.
Kentucky Kitten holds obvious claims under a 6lb penalty for last week’s dominant win at Leicester, but he was allowed to dictate the pace and a chance is taken on MAXINE returning to form. A case can be made on her 1m2f turf exploits earlier this year and 1m4f on Polytrack was against her last time. Mafia Power and The Nu Form Way could be thereabouts but Kentucky Kitten is feared most.
Having won her first two handicaps last year, PRECISELY belated reappeared with a close second over 1m at Yarmouth recently and this unexposed filly can go one better now back up in trip. Aone Ally stayed on strongly and went close over 1m at Ayr last time and could be the chief threat on his first crack at 1m2f, with Sagauteur and Two Brothers also respected.
