12/1

Half-sister to several winners who had just two runs as a 2yo showing improved form at Pontefract (6f, good/soft) after a considerate AW debut. Returns from an absence for her first try on Fibresand (pedigree suggests she will act here).

11/2

Gelded after his three 2yo starts over sprint trips having shown some promise on his debut over 5f. Now confronts Fibresand for the first time with a visor also applied; chance if he acts on the unique surface.

4/6

Progressed in two starts as a 3yo having shown some ability as a juvenile. Bumped into a speedier type at Chelmsford last time over 5f, kept on well but looks sure to be suited by a return to 6f; makes his Fibresand debut (by Mayson) so should act he

20/1

Modest form at best and was well held when tried over 1m here last time having run over 7f on her final 2yo start. Best effort so far came on her second start at Yarmouth over 6f; this is her first try at 5f, looks outclassed.

Unlike the majority of this field she has already proved herself on this surface twice finishing second over 6f first and 5f more recently. Unraced as 2yo she matched her debut effort last time (looked a little quirky; like her dam); should go well.

Rodin (4/6), Sur Mer (10/3), Passional (7/2), Capla Spirit (11/2), Northern Queen (12/1), Harbour Point (20/1)

Verdict

Not an easy contest to get a handle on with little Fibresand form on display and a few of these returning from breaks. Sur Mer has nothing to prove on the surface but she didn’t look totally straightforward here last time when beaten in a small-field event. Rodin has the best form on offer but 5f has looked sharp enough for him of late and he wouldn’t want to get behind here. Northern Queen ought to be able to improve on her 2yo form but a chance is taken on CAPLA SPIRIT in a first-time visor. His juvenile form suggested he could win at this trip and trainer Gay Kelleway is in good form at the moment; he’s a sporting selection against the main two neither of which have convincing profiles.
  1. Capla Spirit
  2. Rodin
  3. Sur Mer
