The step up in trip didn’t really work for GOOD RISK AT ALL at Cheltenham last time and he looks a strong play back down to 2 and a half miles. He was very impressive at Carlisle and I’m expecting a similar performance here despite suffering defeat last time. He clearly has a big engine and is worth keeping on side.
First Flow is obviously very talented but is an 11yo now and this looks a tough ask off a big weight. Might leave War Lord as the main danger.
Main danger War Lord
Obviously a bit of a guessing game with that but SIR GINO is well thought of and this looks winnable so I think he’ll make a winning start for top connections. He won a Listed newcomers race in France and the form has worked out well so he looks a nice type.
Ithaca’s Arrow was a good second at Sandown and if improving will be the one to chase the favourite home. Highland Reel colt Nachtegeist best of the rest.
Main danger Ithaca’s Arrow
Venetia Williams is still operating at a 36% strike rate in the past fortnight and TANGANYIKA looks hard to get away from here. He showed a good attitude to prevail at Bangor last time and I think that is solid form in the context of this race. He is only 4lb higher and has a relentless way of going so should follow up.
Classic Concorde is in great form and has to be respected but he is a 10yo now. Bells Of Peterboro might be the one to chase him home.
Main danger Bells Of Peterboro
I have no doubt NICKLE BACK is still progressing over fences. He won his first two starts impressively before bumping into Hermes Allen at Newbury last time. He stayed on well once headed and was clear from the third with the field well strung out. His aggressive tactics should see him back in the winners enclosure here as I don’t think there is anything good enough to live with him.
Master Chewy is consistent but usually finds one too good. The other pair are likely up against it.
Main danger Master Chewy
Hard to look past BURDETT ROAD here as he was impressive at Cheltenham and Harry Cobden has come out since and said he is the best juvenile he has ridden which is quite a big statement. He has more to come and the hat-trick likely beckons now before a tilt at the Festival.
Harsh got off the mark last time and if jumping slicker might be the one to finish second. Salver is also respected but a bit to find with the favourite as the betting is suggesting.
Main danger Harsh
I know BOOTHILL was rather fortunate to win at Ascot last time but he was impressive prior to that and his confidence is sky high right now. We know this test suits and if he gives his running again it may well be good enough to win this.
Elixir De Nutz is likeable and arrives on a hat-trick so is the biggest danger. Nube Negra is certainly capable but who knows which version of him will turn up here. He is likely well handicapped though so I’m not ruling him out.
Main danger Elixir De Nutz
This is wide open but NASSALAM must have a great chance for Gary Moore. He impressed winning here readily earlier in the month and if in that form again will definitely get competitive. The ground is quicker but he is versatile and won on Good to Soft at Newbury a couple of years ago. He is up in trip but if staying would be a danger to all under a 4lb penalty.
Plenty of dangers in a race like this probably headed by Super Survivor. He was a good second to Git Maker last time and should strip fitter now. He likely has a big pot in him and will run well. Autonomous Cloud should go well and Complete Unknown also has potential to bounce back.
The consistent TEA CLIPPER has found just the one rival too strong the last twice and that was a very good run when second to Hold That Taught at Ascot last month. A repeat of that would likely see him the one to beat in this. I know he carries top weight but this seems easier and he has strong claims.
Tweed Skirt is certainly capable if on a going day but I get the feeling with her she needs everything to drop right. Hidden Heroics is another one to note if he avoids jumping errors.
