7/4

Broke the maiden tag at the 18th attempt when winning over C&D on her most recent start; up a mere 2lb, so we'll see whether or not she can continue to move forward.

Decisive C&D winner off a 5lb lower mark in September 2017 (11/2), but hasn't seen much racing since; never involved over 7f here last month on his first start for nine months.

Recorded a second Brighton win (6f-1m) when scoring by an all out head over C&D latest; 4lb rise to contend with.

Valid excuse when down the field behind Hidden Stash over C&D on his penultimate start, but had won well from a 3lb lower mark over C&D prior to that effort; posted another solid run (second) latest.

Sprung a shock (25/1) when off the mark at the 25th attempt at Lingfield (7f) in June, but she again ran well at that track just a week later when a staying on 2L fourth to Gainsay; player with extra yardage a plus.

No immediate progress in handicap company, but dropped a further 4lb in the weights with the first-time blinkers going on for turf debut; one to keep on your side for now given trainer/jockey combination.

Shown no worthwhile form so far, and was beaten a long way (eased) on handicap debut over 1m4f here last month; back in trip but certainly couldn't be advised.

Very few positives to take from his five career starts so far, but showed a little more when finishing fifth of 13 at Kempton latest (7f), and is lowly-weighted assuming that his trainer has established that 1m is his ideal trip.

Betting

Forecast

Junoesque (7/4), Fleeting Steps (3/1), Sharp Operator (5/1), Flying Sakhee (6/1), Mossy's Lodge (6/1), Hidden Stash (8/1), Townie Mac (20/1), Captain Marmalade (33/1), Billie Flynn (50/1)

Verdict

A race in which it could pay to be cautious about the chances of Fleeting Steps with the blinkers going on for his turf debut, whilst the bang in-form mare Flying Sakhee should be thereabouts over this longer trip after solid 7f runs on rattling quick ground at Lingfield. However, it is SHARP OPERATOR who catches the eye most. A C&D winner in May, he had a valid excuse next time (reared leaving the stalls), but travelled well throughout the majority of the race when beaten just 1L by Wild Acclaim off this mark at Yarmouth (1m) latest and a return to this sharper track should suit.
