7/1

Off the mark for his current yard when scoring at Wolverhampton in November but held twice since; has won off higher marks in the past past but consistency isn't his strong point. Only raced here once before, so also needs to prove the course suits.

Capable and arrives here in good heart after a couple of highly encouraging efforts; won well at Kempton last month and not disgraced back at the same course a week later. Now 2lb higher but still a threat to all here.

Nice pedigree but allowed to leave the Godolphin operation for just £16,000 at August Ascot sales and has done little in two starts for his current trainer. Big improvement needed.

Hasn't stood much racing over the last year or so but showed he retains ability with a solid effort over an extended mile at Wolverhampton last month; on a handy mark and interesting to see if he can repeat the effort back on Polytrack.

Ran respectably without troubling the judge in four starts since returning from a break; was upped to 1m2f last time out but stayed the trip without too many issues. Never been at his best at mile before, though.

Won twice over C&D last September and also ran with plenty of zest when revised marks came into effect; now on a career highest rating but has progressed well since reverting to a mile; good chance once again.

Early form in bumpers was nothing special but the mare has subsequently flourished since switching codes and got off the mark in good style at Lingfield last November; disappointed as favourite last time but the return to 1m will suit; shortlisted.

Has a choice of entries this week and will be interesting to see if he switches to the Polytrack here (has run well at Kempton in the past). 3lb below his last winning mark so dangerous to rule out; fitting of cheekpieces could be key.

Behind Kyllachy Dragon at Wolverhampton last month but has been below that level since; may be sharpened up by the fitting of cheekpieces but still has a bit to find; has won over C&D and possible the return here will be beneficial. One to monitor.

Another with headgear applied for the first time and interesting to note the tongue tie is omitted (tried in all three previous starts for his current yard). Dangerously well handicapped and one to take very seriously if he attracts support.

Betting

Forecast

Avorisk Et Perils (11/4), Weloof (7/2), Brains (11/2), Roller (7/1), Parknacilla (7/1), Regulator (8/1), Turquoise Friendly (12/1), Kyllachy Dragon (12/1), Decoration Of War (20/1), Wild Animal (50/1)

Verdict

A chance is taken that PARKNACILLA still has a bit more to offer and can defy his career highest mark; Avorisk Et Perils and Brains won't make it easy for the selection and are worthy alternatives; Turquoise Friendly is well handicapped and appeals most from those experimenting with new headgear.
  1. Parknacilla
  2. Avorisk Et Perils
  3. Turquoise Friendly
