ALMOHANDESAH shaped with plenty of promise when second in a Redcar maiden on debut 3 weeks ago and, with progress expected, she’s fancied to make a bold bid to go one place better. That said, the same comments apply to Gentle Ellen and she is a serious threat. Early-season course winner May Blossom completes the shortlist.

PLAY SMARTER

URBAN ARTIST has marginally the best form and should be able to dominate this from the outset, so she gets the nod over Eileendover, who makes plenty of appeal based on what she’s done in bumpers. Katara can also take a hand if back to the level she showed when scoring in a listed event at Newmarket last term.

A winner on return at Redcar, he ran well to finish as close as he did when fourth at Chester 3 weeks ago having been set quite a bit to do. He appeals as still being on a workable mark and can go well, along with Cormier and Law of One. Furzig, in search of the hat-trick, is not dismissed lightly either.

Most in with some sort of a squeak here but preference is for Ralph Beckett’s YESYES, who is bred to be useful and made the perfect start to her career when scoring at Haydock just over 3 weeks ago.

PLAY SMARTER

A case can be made for a few of these sprinters but MR WAGYU is in the form of his life and hard to side against in his bid for a four-timer after his impressive York victory. Richard Fahey’s returning Abduction improved with each of his three runs as a juvenile and is worth a market check on his handicap bow, with in-form Ghathanfar worth a second look too.
