16:55 – Boasty

Coming into this off the back of a win makes Sammy Sunshine an obvious candidate, but there are a couple of interesting rivals up against him. Simply Sin hasn’t been seen in 585 days, but he was well backed when defying a 307-day absence here in August 2020 so it will be interesting to see what the market says this time. However, the vote goes to BOASTY who may be 1-24, but some of his Dundalk form last year looks good for this level and he is appealing on this first start for Ivan Furtado.


17:30 – Lenny’s Spirit

Having won over C&D last time Strategic Fortune has to go on the shortlist but the widest draw makes thing tricky and preference is for LENNY’S SPIRIT, whose second-place finishes in a couple of 0-60 handicaps in December read well in the context of this race. Amalfi Salsa is another to consider.

18:00 – General Sago

Despite the form of his Lingfield victory not working out that well Acrion still holds good claims in this uncompetitive event, but he may struggle to concede 7lb to GENERAL SAGO who makes his debut for Mike Murphy having been placed in eight of his nine starts on turf last year. His breeding suggests he should take to the new surface.

18:30 – Tone the Barone

There is no doubt that Highfield Princess is favoured by the weights in this interesting sprint, but she has something to prove on her first attempt at 5f and preference is for TONE THE BARONE, who recorded a career-best performance when winning at Lingfield last time. He acts well around here too and can enhance his already impressive strike-rate. Alligator Alley is worth a market check on his debut for David O’Meara following a very long absence.

19:00 – Fox Power

A turnaround in the weights should enable Precision Storm to reverse last month’s C&D running with Athmad and, given his record here, he looks sure to run his race. However, the choice is FOX POWER who didn’t run at all badly when sixth in the Lincoln Trial here a week ago and should appreciate the return to this grade. Nankeen was disappointing last time, but is an unexposed gelding from a respected yard so can’t be written off.



19:30 – Amber Island

The application of a hood and tongue-tie earlier this year certainly did the trick with Khatwah, the filly completing a hat-trick including a win over C&D. She remains relatively unexposed, but now finds herself off a 12lb higher mark on this return to a handicap so AMBER ISLAND is preferred. The mare appreciated the return to this trip when gaining her second win over C&D last month and a 2lb rise may not be enough to stop her from following up.

20:00 – Harbour Vision

A case can be made for a few of these, but the vote goes to top-weight HARBOUR VISION who is 2-2 in Class 6 handicaps and drops to this level for the first time since August 2020. Peruvian Summer wouldn’t need to step up much on his recent Southwell reappearance to make an impact, while Local Bay is worth watching in the market on his debut for Tony Carroll. Astroman is the most interesting of those at likely bigger odds.



20:30 – Universal Effect (NAP)

A market check is advised with regard to Weloof having dropped back to his last winning mark, while Magical Mile and Makambe are both running well enough to suggest they may play a part. Calonne is capable of figuring if things pan out his way, but preference is for UNIVERSAL EFFECT (nap) who ran better last time and is 3lb lower than for the latest of her two C&D victories early last year.
