Most of the top Newmarket yards are represented in what looks a good novice, but NOBLE ORDER is hard to get away from after his promising debut at Newmarket. He’s well bred, and with improvement surely coming, can emulate his smart half-brother Royal Fleet who won this last year. Zameka, Falling Shadow and Mizmar head up a clutch of very interesting newcomers.
NEW TO PADDY POWER?
CHANNEL PACKET is shaping up well for all his supporters failed to collect at Chelmsford last week and he’s worth chancing again dropped back in trip on his first run at Kempton. Raajihah is an interesting alternative, as is River Chorus.
CENTRALLIA shaped well when chasing home a useful prospect at Newmarket last time and may be capable of going one better now. There was a lot to like about Themoonsaballoon’s debut effort at Wolverhampton and she’s feared most ahead of Marco Botti’s Dubai Immo, who has been placed twice at Newcastle.
JUST A TAD made a pleasing start when sixth at Nottingham under a patient ride and is fancied to take a big step forward here and open her account. The main threat to William Haggas’ filly could come from newcomers Dance Floor Diva and Yellowbrick Road, who both appeal on paper and need monitoring in the market.
BASHOSH is a well-bred lightly-raced three-year-old from the Varian yard who may have more to offer at this level and gets the vote down in trip back from three months off. Uzincso is 6-9 here and could be set for a big run, while Chance is also a player.
FIRST CHARGE hasn’t looked back since stepping up to 2m for new trainer Mark Loughnane and is fancied to make it three wins in his last four starts. There should be more to come from Rumi now faced with an increased test of stamina and he’s feared most ahead of Sophar Sogood.
I’M MABLE is able to race off 2lbs lower than when scoring over 5 furlongs at Nottingham earlier this month so has obvious claims, particularly as the return to 6 furlongs may suit even better. Won Love shaped quite nicely here last time and could pose a big threat if an outside stall doesn’t inconvenience. Company Mix was behind the selection last time, but the return to 6 furlongs will help and she’s also shortlisted.
Not nearly so competitive as the numbers suggest, and SCARBOROUGH CASTLE looks set to defy a 6lbs rise in the weights and complete his hat-trick with the return to this longer trip very much in his favour. Blazer Two has still to get his head in front, but is feared most on the back of his good Wolverhampton second. Star of Epsom rates the pick of the remainder for place purposes.
