Anipa sets the standard with an official handicap mark of 74. She appeared not to stay 1m2f when last seen at the track in September but had gone close over shorter trips before that. TARRAFAL makes more appeal, however, as he wasn't beaten far by the 82-rated Lungarno Palace on his racecourse debut over track and trip last month and normal progress can see him off the mark. The remainder are hard to fancy on their form to date though Lindart came in for some support on his debut and better is expected from the Hannon colt today.
Lindart (ITY) 5-2 (9-5) Dwelt pushed along and outpaced over 4f out, never a factor, last of 5, 14l behind Chunghua (9-5) at Lingfield 6f 3yo mdn stks (5) pol in Feb.
Anipa 3-1 (9-0) Held up in rear, ridden over 2f out, headway over 1f out, never able to get on terms, 4th of 8, 6l behind Devilment (9-5) at Kempton 1m 2f 2yo mdn stks (5) pol in Sep.
Tarrafal (IRE) 10-1 (9-5) Led but green in front, headed well over 1f out, chased winner, ridden over 1f out, edged right and one pace in 3rd inside final furlong, 3rd of 4, 1 3/4l behind Lungarno Palace (9-5) at Wolverhampton 1m 1f 3yo mdn stks (5) pol in Feb.
Guaracha 33-1 (9-0) Dwelt, raced wide mid-division, ridden 2f out, weakened final furlong, 7th of 12, 9l behind The Third Man (9-0) at Lingfield 7f 2yo mdn stks (5) pol in Dec.
