16:50 Haydock Wed 12 June 2019
Has raced almost exclusively on testing ground to date, winning over 1m (soft) at Windsor last October; sits plenty high enough in the weights with stamina over 1m6f far from guaranteed; vulnerable.
Appeared to have a promising future when turning over Rowland Ward in the High Rise novice at Pontefract (1m4f, good to firm) in April; fair to say that he hasn't quite progressed as well as expected since; ground concerns.
Camelot filly who was a comfortable 2L winner when upped in trip on fillies' handicap debut at Leicester (1m4f, good to firm) 16 days ago; 4lb higher meeting the 'boys' over an extra two furlongs; handles soft.
Sea The Moon gelding who has thrived since tackling this 1m6f trip (3-3); was doing all of his best work deep inside the final furlong when landing the hat-trick at Nottingham (good) last week; well-in under a 6lb penalty; has very strong claims.
Improving steadily with racing and again hit the frame at sizeable odds of 33/1 when beaten 2L by Lord Lamington on handicap debut at Sandown (1m6f, good to firm) 13 days ago; this race looks to be even more competitive.
Her Newcastle fourth (125/1) to Moonlight Spirit rates as rock-solid form; ditched Nathan Evans pre-race prior to an encouraging second placed finish on her belated seasonal reappearance at Redcar (1m2f); has plenty of stamina in her family line.
Short odds winner of a weak Newcastle maiden (1m4f) in March and finished a couple of places behind today's rival Tidal Point on his first attempt at this 1m6f trip at Sandown (good to firm) a fortnight ago; needs plenty more.
