Matched previous best when opening account over 1m at Thirsk in April. Recent efforts not so inspiring though, racing indolently and never a threat when last of 7 at Hamilton (8.3f) in June.

7/2
Frankel filly who seemed to relish the return to front-running tactics when making all at Leicester (10f) 17 days ago, drawing clear 1f out and only closed down late on. Rates a player with a repeat.

11/2
Low-mileage gelding who showed improved form when scoring narrowly at Leicester (10f) in June, doing well to hold on having taken time to settle. 3 lb higher now but quite possible he hasn't yet reached his limit.

Showed much-improved form when staying on strongly for second at Leicester (8.2f) in June and whilst she failed to build on that at Hamilton 2 weeks later it would come as no surprise to see a better showing having been given a break since.

Minor promise in trio of novice events as a 2-y-o and stepped up on those efforts when runner-up on return/handicap debut here (7f) in May. Not yet matched that in 2 subsequent outings but he arrives with yard in good order. Up in trip.

Improved in line with the longer trip of late, runner-up at Ffos Las prior to getting off the mark at Newbury (1¼m) 16 days ago, making all. Bit more on his plate up 4 lb but he may not have finished improving yet.

Got off the mark at Musselburgh (1m) in May and has continued in form, respectable third of 8 in handicap at Carlisle (9f, good to firm) 30 days ago, keeping on. Should give another good account.

Showed some promise in novice/maiden company during the spring but she arrives here with something to prove having pulled up at Beverley (lost action) and ran no sort of race when last of 10 at Newcastle (7f) 3 days ago.

Forecasts

Tessy Lad (5/2), Playday (7/2), Fergie Time (4/1), Glittering Choice (11/2), Benjamin Bear (11/2), Jubilee Girl (12/1), Come On John (14/1), Samuel Spade (18/1), Waba Daba Do (66/1)

Verdict

GLITTERING CHOICE needs forgiving a lesser effort at Hamilton in June but that came pretty quickly on the back of a strong-finishing second on return at Leicester (clear with a progressive sort) and, having been given time since, it would come as no surprise to see her go well tackling this longer trip. Dangers aplenty are headed up by Benjamin Bear and Playday.
