7/1

Justified favouritism when making a winning debut at Redcar (6f, soft) last October; gelded over the winter; concedes plenty of weight to the 3yo's; tough task.

Built upon his debut third when off the mark at the second attempt (16/1) at Wetherby (7f, good to soft), eleven days ago; interesting to see how he copes with this drop in trip; place chance.

Placed on a couple of occasions on the AW at Kempton (6f); raced keenly when a beaten 6/4f on handicap debut at Windsor (6f, good); must learn to settle.

Always towards the rear when finishing last of 16 on debut (66/1) in a C&D maiden three-weeks ago; look elsewhere.

Soon weakened when finishing eighth of ten (40/1) to Nahaar in a similar C&D novice two-weeks ago; not the solution.

Cost €130,000 as a juvenile; bustled up the subsequent two-time winner Fox Champion (incl a Conditions Stakes race) when finishing runner up on debut at Kempton (6f) last October; sets the benchmark.

Shamardal filly; caught inside the final furlong by subsequent Burradon Stakes runner up Daarik (John Gosden) at Newcastle in November; off since; looks difficult to keep out of the frame on turf debut.

Half-sister to a couple of winners including the 5f scorer Irish Girls Spirit; has struggled to make any impression on the track to date (Beverley and Newcastle); look elsewhere.

Delegator filly; took a step forward from her Pontefract debut when finishing a 100/1 fifth of 14 at Redcar (6f); stablemate of Guarded Secret; others hold more realistic prospects.

Betting

Forecast

Dreaming Away (11/4), Harry's Bar (11/4), Johnny Reb (7/2), Stoney Lane (5/1), Bielsa (7/1), Jet Set Go (16/1), Cheam Avenue (25/1), Guarded Secret (25/1), Inn With The Gin (33/1), Shall We Begin (40/1), The Thorny Rose (40/1), Brutalab (50/1), Doncaster Star (66/1)

Verdict

It's difficult to look beyond the strong and compelling claims of JOHNNY REB who switches to turf for the first-time having bustled up the talented Fox Champion on debut at Kempton in October 2018. Others worthy of consideration for the places include the Simon Crisford-trained Dreaming Away (form is solid in the context of this race) and the dropped in trip Wetherby scorer Stoney Lane.
