49-5OR:
66/1

Half-brother to three Flat winners including winners at up to 1m with the dam a winner up to 1m2f. Stable are not known for their Flat winners though especially newcomers in this type of event and best watched for now.

49-5OR: 72
5/4

Gelded for his three-year-old career and has looked rather better if he could be taught to settle properly. Ran far too free on his handicap debut last time over 7f and now returns to a maiden; has to settle to show his true worth.

49-0OR:
40/1

First foal of a dam who was a 1m Fibresand winner who was closely related to the useful Listed placed (in France) Bit By Bit. Unlikely to be good enough to trouble the principals on her first outing.

49-0OR:
1/1

Once-raced as a juvenile over 6f (race threw up winners) on her debut last year she ran below that form returning after 8 months away from the track. Tried over 7f last time and worth another chance at this trip; not an easy pedigree to read.

49-0OR:
7/1

Attracted support on her debut over 6f here and offered something to work on but failed to build on that last time when failing to settle over the same trip at Hamilton. Now stepped up to 7f (not certain to suit) and needs this run for a mark.

Forecast

Bidding War (1/1), Saisons D'Or (5/4), Pop Telecom (7/1), Craigie Rose (20/1), April Rising (40/1), Broctune Red (66/1)

Verdict

This isn’t a strong event and it’s the type of contest that Saisons D’Or should be taking if only he could be taught to settle in his races. That may well happen but for now a safer bet looks to be BIDDING WAR who looked as though she needed her comeback run and showed enough on debut to be considered for a race like this. Pop Telecom is another who pulled her chance away last time and with this 7f not certain to suit gaining a handicap mark looks to be the objective here.
