Class 5 | 1m 6f | Good (Good to Firm in places) | 6 Runners | Turf
Off time: 15:55 | Winning time: 3m 9.2s
Generally performing well in recent weeks - was a Class 6 winner at Chepstow (1m4f, soft) three starts back; struggled to make his mark (held by Thai Power) in a Class 3 C&D handicap ten days ago; sits a further 2lb higher.
Finished very strongly when just failing to reel in the front-running Choral Work in a 1m4f fillies' novice at Haydock (good) on her second career start; is closely related to the 1m6f Listed winner Forever Now; a noteworthy handicap debutante.
Nathaniel filly; has shown a consistent level of form without necessarily progressing from race to race; was beaten a neck by the shock 22-1 winner Gentleman At Arms in a Lingfield median auction maiden (1m4f, AW) three weeks ago.
Seven-race maiden; has often been slowly away (possibly by design); finished a reasonably creditable third to the thriving King's Charisma at Haydock (1m2f, soft) on his penultimate start; others thought open to more improvement.
Commanding winner at Kempton (1m4f, Class 6) in June, and has seemingly taken the resultant rise in grade firmly in his stride; was no match (second) for an authoritative winner (Arthurian Fable) over C&D ten days ago; sets the benchmark.
New Approach colt; has fallen 6lb in the weights since introduced to handicapping (0-3); met trouble when finishing seventh of 12 to Boss Power at Yarmouth (1m3½f maiden h'cap) 11 days ago; cheekpieces are added seeking that extra edge.
Thai Power (4/5), Immortal Beloved (5/1), Raventree (15/2), Bealach (8/1), Gibraltar (17/2), Camouflaged (18/1)
