There should be enough in the way of pace to ensure OUTRAGE should get a decent gallop to aim at and he’s taken to make his first visit to this track a winning one. He wasn’t at his best over 6 furlongs at Lingfield last time, but he should be seen in a much more favourable light back at this trip. He divided Phoenix Star and Secretinthepark at Newcastle on his previous start and those two could emerge as the biggest dangers.
HELLO FROM PADDY POWER NEWS!
Today’s step back up in trip could be the catalyst for a first win from PRINCE ABU (NAP), who stayed on well for a close third over 1m4f here last week on his first encounter with Tapeta. Rainbow’s Gift is feared most on his first start since wind surgery, with Globetrotter another to consider.
There are question marks of one description or another over the majority and, although he has been off since May, the suggestion is GRANGECLARE VIEW, whose Redcar win threw up winners and he’s since been gelded.
Libby Ami hasn’t been at her best of late, but she is on a handy mark on her first run for Ivan Furtado and could be the main danger. Beloved also has prospects in an open event if the tongue-tie works.
The suggestion is CREATIONIST who shaped encouragingly over 2m last time, remains unexposed as a stayer and has slipped to a handy mark. He’s capable of useful all-weather form on his day. Second choice is Author’s Dream, who ties in closely with the selection on Lingfield running 16 days ago. London Eye is third choice.
Any money for either of the (in-form) Ivan Furtado runners could be significant, but the suggestion is SIR MAXI, who starts life for Richard Fahey on a handy mark. He won his only start on all-weather (Polytrack) and he is taken to make a winning debut on Tapeta. Harbour Vision and Homer Stokes could give him the most to do.
Mostallim should be better for a recent run after a short break, but narrow preference is for BIRDIE BOWERS, David Thompson had two winners at this course last week and his four-year-old has been shaping as though the return to this trip would suit on his two most recent starts at Newcastle. The unexposed Chantreys is another to consider.

There aren’t many solid betting propositions in this line-up, so it is worth siding with SHYJACK, who knows how to win and posted his best all-weather figure at this course last week. The drop to 7 furlongs is a bit of a worry and he’s taken to beat Professor Galant and Ruby Lily.
The three-year-old DANCING MASTER won when upped to 16.5 furlongs at Wolverhampton in September and was on the wrong end of a pace bias when fourth there last time. He gets the nod ahead of Gustave Aitch on his first run for Grant Tuer. The Resdev Way, Metal Man and Freewheelin can also go well.
