- 6f 6y,
- 10 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Debut for £38,000 Camacho colt whose dam won at both 7f and a mile. Yard has 14% strike rate with juveniles at this track and continues to enjoy a good season. Well worth considering.
Son of Dark Angel cost 200,000 guineas as a yearling and is half-brother to five individual winners. Well beaten favoruite on debut on easy ground at York but second last time on Good to Firm. Testing ground has to be a concern.
Yard has won this race twice in the last 10 years and is having a superb season. Run creditably all three starts and was second to promising newcomer at HQ last time. Untested on heavy ground.
Gelded son of Hot Streak was respectable third on debut over C&D but seemed to find 7f beyond him when well beaten third at Musselburgh latest. Return here makes sense.
Showed ability on each of first three starts prior to being gelded. Not disgraced on handicap bow at York last time when beaten less than three lengths after being hampered early on. Surprise if there aren't one or two better though.
Home bred Orientor half-sister to a US stakes winner. Looked all at sea and very green when beaten a long way on debut at Ayr recently. Appears to nee more time.
Sir Prancealot filly who is half-sister to 7f 2yo winner who handled testing ground. More than likely to improve for this debut experience unless market suggests otherwise.
Debut for Famous Name filly who is half-sister to four-time winner who handled soft ground. Yard had just a couple of juvenile runners so far without success. Would be a surprise winner.
Stable companion of Crystal Crown. Has beaten only one horse home in three races so far and looks of very limited ability. Tackles heavy ground for the first time but can't be fancied.
Has finished a well beaten last on both starts so far, bth on soft ground. Will have to produce massive improvement to get into contention and is very hard to enthuse over.
Last Year's Winner
