Delta Legend cost 200,000 guineas as a yearling and is out of a half-sister to the smart Juliet Foxtrot who won a Grade 1 in the USA, so he takes the eye ahead of his debut. He is in excellent hands with William Haggas and starts out with the yard in good form so is worth siding with to make a successful start to his career.
Belo Horizonte ran out a decisive winner of a classified stakes at Yarmouth on his penultimate start and he showed that he’s really getting the hang of things when registering another easy victory in similar company at Lingfield on Monday. Belo Horizonte, who is only three and has just six starts under his belt, is clearly thriving at present and can complete the quickfire hat-trick for the in-form Richard Spencer.

Finery disappointed on a rare turf outing at Nottingham when last seen in June but she has been given a break since that effort and should be seen to better effect back on the all-weather. Finery has three course-and distance wins to her name and is back down to her last winning mark on the all-weather so it would be little surprise to see her launch a bold bid.
Aljari was knocking on the door around the turn of the year after joining Tom Clover from Marco Botti and he showed that he’s a well-handicapped horse when registering a comfortable two-and-a-quarter-length success in a seven-furlong handicap at Lingfield in June, beating a lightly-raced three-year-old who went on to win his next three starts. Aljari did his own bit for the form when defying an 8 lb higher mark in a six-furlong handicap at Windsor last month and he did well to win on that occasion as he didn’t enjoy the smoothest of passages. He’s only 2 lb higher here and should launch a bold bid to complete the hat-trick.
Socialist Agenda was well backed on his Flat handicap debut at Wolverhampton a few weeks ago but he wasn’t seen to best effect having been held up in a race that was run at a steady early gallop. He remains capable of better in this sphere and his bumper and hurdles form suggests that he’s well up to winning off a BHA Flat mark of 53. He’s a three-time bumper winner and has won a couple of times over hurdles, showing a fairly useful level of form.
The Waiting Game justified strong support when winning with a good deal to spare in a classified stakes over course and distance last week, proving well suited by a positive ride over a shorter trip. That was The Waiting Game’s first attempt over six furlongs – she had run over a mile and a quarter on her previous outing – and she could have more to offer as a sprinter so looks the one to side with back in handicap company.
