Class 1 | 5f 110y | Good to Soft (Soft in places) | 16 Runners | Turf
Off time: 15:21 | Winning time: 1m 5.97s
Fairly useful filly. 20/1 and cheekpieces on for 1st time, creditable second of 20 in handicap at Thirsk (6f, good to soft) 14 days ago, no match for winner. Difficult ask.
Fairly useful mare. C&D winner. Eighth of 9 in handicap (10/1) at York (5f, good) 30 days ago. Hood back on.
Useful mare. Third of 5 in handicap (9/2) at Sandown (5f, good to soft) 18 days ago. Should strip fitter for that return and has proved capable at this level in the past.
Fairly useful mare. Creditable third of 13 in handicap (6/1) at Thirsk (5f, good to soft) 14 days ago, running on. Uphill task.
Useful mare. Latest win at Chepstow in June. Creditable third of 11 in handicap at Chelmsford City (5f, 9/1) 15 days ago, not ideally placed.
Useful mare. 10 lengths sixth of 9 to Dakota Gold in listed race at Beverley (5f, good to soft, 25/1) 22 days ago. Merits consideration based on the pick of her efforts.
Fairly useful filly. 7¾ lengths fifth of 7 to A'ali in Sapphire Stakes at the Curragh (5f, good, 50/1) 61 days ago. Booking of Curtis a plus.
Useful filly. 15/8, bit below form fifth of 9 in handicap at York (5f, good) 30 days ago, unable to sustain effort. Others make more appeal.
Useful filly. 12/1, last of 9 in handicap at York (5f, good to soft) 27 days ago. First run for yard after leaving Archie Watson. Not ruled out starting for another shrewd stable.
Useful filly. Latest win at Pontefract in June. Bit below form 4¼ lengths fourth of 11 to Stormy Girl in listed race (9/4) at Pontefract (6f, good to firm) 35 days ago. Not one to write off.
Useful filly. Latest win at Haydock in June. Good second of 7 in handicap (14/1) at Bath (5f, good to soft) 30 days ago. Likely to come up short.
Lightly-raced winner. 6/1, respectable 2¼ lengths third of 11 to Stormy Girl in listed race at Pontefract (6f, good to firm) 35 days ago, faring best of those held up. May yet improve.
Useful filly. Career best when winning 12-runner handicap at Salisbury (6f, good to soft, 16/1) 15 days ago, suited by strong pace. More required.
Fairly useful filly. Course winner. Eighth of 11 in handicap at Thirsk (7f, good to soft, 33/1) 14 days ago. Back down in trip. Cheekpieces on 1st time. Plenty to find on form.
Last Empire (85/40), Magical Journey (7/2), Back To Brussels (4/1), Exceptional (11/2), Dancin Inthestreet (13/2), Star In The Making (10/1), Maygold (14/1), Queens Gift (14/1), American Lady (22/1), Conga (28/1), Ishvara (28/1), Peggie Sue (33/1), Dandy's Beano (40/1), Electric Ladyland (40/1), Our Little Pony (50/1), Magical Moment (80/1), Three Coins (100/1)
BACK TO BRUSSELS still seems to be getting better and had something up her sleeve when landing a minor event at Cork 24 days ago, so she gets the nod in an open listed event. Last Empire arrives on the back of an excellent second to Dakota Gold, so she also warrants consideration along with Maygold.
