PLAY SMARTER

AUNTIE MARGARET sets a decent standard and should have more to give now stepped up in trip for her third run. Dillian shaped well on debut and is bred to do better over middle distances, so he’s a big danger. Percy Jones makes some appeal on paper and needs watching in the market on debut.

He gets the nod to confirm the promise of that run, with Scarlet Dancer, Lethal Levi and Fiftyshadesaresdev a trio of others fancied to be in the mix.

PLAY SMARTER

A fairly useful performer over hurdles, FIRST ACCOUNT hasn’t gone without promise in a trio of starts on the level over inadeqaute trips of late and, refitted with a visor on handicap debut, a much better showing is anticipated over this markedly longer trip. The Resdev Way is 1lb lower than when winning easily on all-weather in the spring and is worth a look. Wynford is also considered.

Plenty are in with a shout. RUN THIS WAY caught the eye on only her second run for Paul Midgley when a running-on fourth at Carlisle and is fancied to take another step forward here for her shrewd yard. Both Fauvette and Motawaazy arrive on the back of best-ever wins though so seem sure to be on the premises, while the well-weighted Captain Jameson is another high on the shortlist.

PLAY SMARTER

A trappy maiden and it may pay to side with INDEFATIGABLE. A winner of the Martin Pipe at Cheltenham in 2020, she signed off last season over hurdles with a good second at Grade 2 level. Far from disgraced at Listed level on her sole previous start on the Flat, she should find this test more suitable and the booking of Ben Curtis catches the eye. Tiger Beetle and Doctor Parnassus head the dangers.

LITTLE JO has only been ticking over of late but his best efforts has come on ground softer than good and, from an easing mark faced with much more suitable conditions, a bold bid is expected back at a venue where he has built up a good record. Dark Spec has twice run well upon returning from a lengthy absence and is feared, along with 3-y-o Grantley.
