29-4OR: D
4/1

Free Eagle filly who cost 30,000gns as a yearling, and made a winning debut at Goodwood last month when beating Smuggler a short head. Penalised for that, although probably better than the bare margin, and will improve.

Gutaifan half-sister to useful 1m/1m1f winner Kodiak West. Yard 2-9 with 2-y-o newcomers this season, so this filly merits a second look. especially if srtong in the market.

11/10

10,000gns vendor buy-back by Kodiac who looked very professional when landing a similar race over C&D on debut late last month. That looks solid form, and she has a big chance despite a penalty for that impressive win.

By Showcasing out of a 2-y-o 6f winner, and closely related to 1¼m winner Lulu Star. Powerful yard also represented by Elegant Erin, although this €32,000 purchase appears the first string on paper.

Seemed to find the drop to 6f against her, but showed improved form when fourth to Special Secret over C&D last time. Better to come, but may need a stiffer test to showcase her talent fully.

Dutch Art filly who cost 25,000gns as a yearling. Offered some encouragement when fifth of 8 to Romsey in a 7f maiden at Chelmsford on debut, and drops in trip now, which may help. Plenty to find on bare form, however.

Sister to a juvenile winner over this trip, but she has been well beaten in two starts to date, faring no better at Goodwood last time, despite being able to lead.

By Dandy Man out of a disappointing maiden from the prolific family of Gold Cup winner Enzeli. Didn't break the bank at €21,000 and Fromnowon appears the yard's first string on riding arrangements. Market check should help clarify that.

8/1

No Nay Never half-sister to 1m winner Lady Sartre and 2-y-o 1m winner Solan. Cheap purchase given her pedigree, but yard has a 24% strike-rate with juveniles first time out, so she merits maximum respect.

Gutaifan filly from the family of useful French sprinter Mazameer. Yard 1-21 with 2-y-o newcomers in the past year, though, and may need this initial experience.

Hasn't gone with a great deal of promise in two runs at Windsor and Goodwood, albeit showing more dash on second occasion. Will be of more interest when qualified for nurseries.

100/1

Kyllachy filly whose sales price fell markedly to just £2,000 gns last year. Makes scant appeal for yard with a 1-43 record with first-time juveniles in recent years.

Hinted at ability despite finishing last on debut at Salisbury, but failed to improve when eighth of 10 over C&D last time. Looks a long-term prospect if anything.

Betting

Forecast

Special Secret (11/10), Sovereign Beauty (4/1), Mitty's Smile (8/1), Odyssey Girl (14/1), Fromnowon (14/1), Hashtagmetoo (14/1), Elegant Erin (20/1), Angel Grey (20/1), Pink Tulip (20/1), Candid (40/1), Depeche Toi (50/1), Summer Lake (50/1), Goodman Square (100/1)

Verdict

SPECIAL SECRET bolted up on her debut over C&D, and while this might be tougher under a penalty, she remains a filly to be positive about, and is preferred to fellow winner Sovereign Beauty, who won a shade cosily despite the narrow margin on her Goodwood debut. Mitty's Smile represents Archie Watson, whose record with similar types means she has to be on the shortlist on her racecourse bow.
