MOES LEGACY shaped well after a break when fourth at Wolverhampton, 10 days ago, plugging on in the closing stages as if she’d come on for the outing, and she is weighted to gain her breakthrough success in a handicap where plenty arrive with a question mark against them.
Jungle Dance can give Ronald Harris’ filly most to do, especially if the fitting of blinkers have a positive effect, with Quiet Affair also in the mix if back on her A-game.
COLOUR CODE showed plenty to work on when finishing midfield in a newcomers’ event at Newmarket in August and she still looked rough around the edges on her return from four months off when runner-up at Wolverhampton last month.
That was also her first start since undergoing a breathing operation, and she remains with the potential for better, so looks a big player in this. Marco Botti’s newcomer King David appeals on paper and could emerge as the main danger to Clive Cox’s filly, with Aljezur and Arnaz also worth considering.
A case can be made for a few of these, but CHARLATAN took a step forward on his handicap debut when finishing third at Chelmsford City 11 days ago and, still with few miles on the clock, he can now capitalise on a handy-looking mark to get off the mark on the back of that promising effort.
Egoiste didn’t enjoy the rub of the green when eighth at Wolverhampton last time and is next on the list, ahead of Desert Swirl and Ricardo Ofworthing.
DOVES OF PEACE has plenty of solid efforts to his name on the all-weather, finishing placed on a number of occasions, and he was arguably as good as ever when finishing third at Wolverhampton 15 days ago. That form received a boost when the winner followed up next time and Doves of Peace has the ability to win a race of this nature from this sort of mark.
The returning course winner Kondratiev Wave could prove the chief threat, with course and distance winner Swiss Rowe also respected.
CLOUD COVER is building an excellent record on the all-weather, winning three of her last five starts – including one over this course and distance – and she bumped into one at Wolverhampton last time. She wasn’t able to justify strong support in the betting, but didn’t do much wrong, and that form is also working out well.
Cloud Cover races from the same mark now and is a strong fancy to resume winning ways. Cue’s Beau was an impressive winner on heavy ground at Nottingham last May and rates as a particularly interesting handicap debutant.

There is little between the principals on form, but ENPASSANT could find the fitting of cheekpieces unlocking some improvement. He has often been well-found in the market of late, but he has failed to keep straight under pressure more than once, so the fitting of headgear may prove the catalyst to him deservedly getting his head in front.
Magic Fluke is weighted to have a say and rates the chief threat, with Flag Carrier, Mariner and Dandy Sands all in the picture too in an open contest.
AMIWITHANI cost €200,000 as a yearling and, though she is yet to show anything other than modest form in three starts so far, there is reason to believe she will show improved form now moving up significantly in trip on her handicap debut. She has had three quick runs so far and didn’t shape badly despite the drop back in trip on her qualifying run at Southwell earlier this month where she was far from knocked about.
There is plenty of stamina in her pedigree, while she is also closely related to very smart performer GM Hopkins, and she starts out in handicaps from a potentially lenient mark. Unleash Hell has experience on his side and, arriving on the back of a career-best effort, he’s rates as the most obvious danger.
