Class 2 | 6f | Good to Soft (Soft in places) | 10 Runners | Turf
Off time: 14:14 | Winning time: 1m 14.94s
Better than result on debut and duly much improved when easy winner at Redcar (6f, heavy) 20 days ago. Looks a useful prospect.
Landed a 6f Chester nursery in August and acquitted himself well off 9 lb higher when third of 9 at Doncaster (7f, good) 9 days ago. Drop back to 6f won't inconvenience. Considered.
Windsor novice winner in June. Has struggled in a couple of listed events since but this more realistic. Visored first time.
Fairly useful form. Winner at Chepstow in August. Good second of 9 in novice at Windsor (6f, good to soft, 4/1) 20 days ago, clear of rest. Makes handicap debut.
Winning debut at Chester in August. Not up to listed company at Ripon since but may fare better in these calmer waters.
Wolverhampton novice winner in August and not seen to best effect (caught wide) when ninth of 11 in nursery back there 13 days ago. Has cheekpieces added now.
Fair form on both starts 10 weeks apart and the fact she's been prominent in the betting on both occasions suggests she's thought capable of better. Nursery debut.
Twice-raced maiden. Failed to build on C&D debut third when fifth of 13 in maiden at Southwell (6f) 18 days ago but clearly still very early days for good yard. Makes handicap debut.
Gelded and off 5 weeks, much improved when justifying market confidence in 6f Thirsk nursery on Monday. Big player under his penalty with further progress on the cards.
Much improved when a ready winner at Wolverhampton (6f) on Sunday. Looks well treated under a penalty for a stable which has tasted success in this race before.
Wobwobwob (2/1), Showalong (10/3), Gumdrop (9/2), Nastase (8/1), Denzil's Laughing (12/1), Outrun The Storm (18/1), Boogie Time (18/1), The Flying Ginger (18/1), Ventura Vision (20/1), Northbound (25/1)
DENZIL'S LAUGHING had a lot in hand at Wolverhampton last weekend and can make light of a penalty and provide Keith Dalgleish with a third win in this race since 2013. The same owner's Wobwobwob is another who arrives on the back of a comfortable win in recent days and heads the dangers along with Showalong, who looked useful when bolting up at Redcar last month.
