Act Of Passion
Racecard

Michael Dods’ 2yo travelled well into the race in a similar race at Redcar last time out, but most importantly as she steps up in trip here, found plenty for pressure when winning at the second time of asking. The form’s been given a few nice boosts with four of those she beat finishing second next time out. That evidence suggests a try at 7f is well worthwhile, especially as she’s by Group 1 winning miler Mondialiste. She’s got to give 10lbs to the 65-rated Alaskan Wind, so will have to pull out more here, but with just the pair of runs under her belt, is entitled to improve again.


Kick On Girl
Racecard

The impressive 50% strike-rate of Charlie Appleby in the past fortnight might mean some turn to Iconic Look here, but that filly still has nearly 15l to find with George Scott’s charge on their debut meetings. Kick On Girl can’t afford to be slow away as she was at Doncaster last time, but she did show plenty of speed that day to make up ground before seeing that effort take its toll late on to finish third. She’s a half-sister to Cheveley Park runner-up The Mackem Bullet, so is bred to be good at two, and this could be just her chance to get off the mark at the second time of asking.


Dubai Station
Racecard

Just three go to post here, but it could turn into a good duel between Dubai Station and Roulston Scar. The latter has the edge on official ratings, but at the trip and on this season’s evidence, preference is for Robert Cowell’s sprinter. Since being gelded in June, the 4yo has finished second in two Conditions events, most recently behind the admirable veteran Danzeno at Nottingham. Prior to that, he got within 3l of last weekend’s Sprint Cup hero Emaraaty Ana at Hamilton, despite losing ground at the start. A repeat of that sort of run could see him hard to stop, especially with his major opponent looking best at 6f.


Ibiza Rocks
Racecard

Revolutionise was given a lot to do on his first run in four months when staying on for fourth, and could have a race in him off his current mark, but with the 3yo allowance Bowman and Ibiza Rocks provide stern opposition. The latter was friendless in the betting on his return from a similar break at Sandown last time so it was perhaps a minor surprise to see him go so well to finish second, well clear of the horse in the bronze medal position. As a juvenile he had some smart sorts in arrears when winning at Newbury, and confirmed that promise when a good third behind the useful Ransom at Kempton on handicap debut. There should be more to come.
