Those with experience don’t set a daunting standard so it’s probably best to focus on the newcomers, with DRUNKEN LOVE making slightly more appeal than Your Mom Knows and Boubacar.
WIN: DRUNKEN LOVE
VALUE: YOUR MOM KNOWS
STORMCOAST unfortunately unseated his rider nine days ago, but he posted a solid placed effort over 1m here the time before and this shorter trip should suit. In a tricky heat, he shades the verdict ahead of the likes of BUMPA, Macho Mania and Echo Alpha Six.
VIOLET BLUE drops significantly in both trip and class and that should result in a return to form, but KIANA’S LOVE edges the vote. She certainly wasn’t stopping in recent wins over 6f and 5f and this step up to a mile could potentially unlock another gear. My Little Stormy also merits consideration.
WIN: KIANA’S LOVE
VALUE: VIOLET BLUE
TOTAL DISTRACTION failed to fire when last seen but the four-year-old can be given another chance today, having hit the crossbar on her penultimate start. Others to note are MUTASHABEH and Rum On The Rocks.
WIN: TOTAL DISTRACTION
The likes of A J’s Mojo, SI ES GOYA and I Miss My Father all merit respect but the vote goes to BALK, who was in good form for the majority of 2019 and he has won twice at this venue already.
VALUE: SI ES GOYA
LORD OF THE LADIES has been struggling in allowance company of late but he should take full advantage of this significant drop in grade. JACKZILLA edges out Total Energy to be the pick of the remainder.
WIN: LORD OF THE LADIES
TREASURED BOND has been acquitting herself well of late and the four-year-old gets the vote to prove too strong for the opposition. The main threats appear to be UNTAPPED ENERGY and Kara Lot.
WIN: TREASURED BOND
VALUE: UNTAPPED ENERGY
FLAT OUT SMOKIN probably needed her first run after a break and she is expected to take a big step forward on this occasion. TIA FLOR can enter calculations along with Prefer Diamonds.
WIN: FLAT OUT SMOKIN
VALUE: TIA FLOR
QUEENS DUDE won nicely when dropped in grade on his most recent start and he is taken to make it two on the bounce in a contest lacking much depth. Last Woodman and Sterling Rebel complete the shortlist.
WIN: QUEENS DUDE
VALUE: LAST WOODMAN
