ROGUE POWER shaped nicely on his final qualifying run in a race that has worked out really well and duly found a chunk of improvement when a narrow second on handicap debut at Yarmouth last week.
He was a long way clear with another big improver that day and is wisely turned out before his reassessed mark kicks on. With that in mind, Rogue Power looks ahead of the game and with further progress on the cards, he should take all the beating.
NEW TO PADDY POWER?
SUWAD starts out at a very realistic level given those with experience do not set the bar too high and representing a yard firmly on the up (particularly with two-year-olds), a winning debut would come as no surprise.
The first foal of her dam was sharp enough to win as a juvenile which augurs well for prospects of Suwad here. Chicago Gal has a bigger performance in her, but that may come in middle-distance handicaps next year given elements of her pedigree.
SAYYIDA has been plying her trade in Group company of late, runner-up at Newmarket in September, and the drop back 10 furlongs was against her last time. She eases back into Listed class here over a more suitable trip and is one to beat on Timeform ratings. There doesn’t seem to be a big improver lurking, with Sea la Rosa perhaps the main danger.
MODERN NEWS has just three rivals to beat in this handicap, and as a well-bred three-year-old in pursuit of a hat-trick taking on his elders, his claims are crystal clear. A 3lbs rise for Doncaster looks lenient and while a messy 7 furlongs on a tighter track asks a different question, he should be up to the task.
A range of abilities on show as connections chase Black Type, but MRS FITZHERBERT proved in no uncertain terms that she’s a filly on the up when readily seeing off a next-time-out winner in handicap company at Wolverhampton a month ago.
Her strength at the finish was probably the most striking part of that performance and she’s expected to take the step up in class in her stride. Maamora is well established at this level and seems sure to be involved.
George Boughey’s prowess with newcomers has already been discussed and AHWHATADAAY may well be up to the task on debut. Related to several winners, his dam was precocious enough to win on debut and stall 4 looks an ideal draw to attack from.
A trappy finale, but ACROSS THE NILE arrives on the back of a brace of solid-looking placed efforts on the all-weather and for a prominent racer, stall 1 is a good berth to attack from at this tight circuit. He makes as much appeal as any of these, though Essme was noted making good late ground at Epsom last time and likely has a bigger effort in her.
