Dream Point

Pearly Prince has to be respected here after an excellent win at Ffos Las, but he’s now got to translate that form up in trip and the weights, back on the Tapeta. At the prices, preference is for Dream Point who has built up a good partnership under Violet Barton. The 10f trip last week was too short for her to show his best, but the mare did well to pass rivals late on. She was staying on when last running over this sort of trip when beaten a length in third at Musselburgh over 1m5f. Due to Barton being able to claim her full 5lb here, she’s effectively only 2lb higher than her win at Catterick three starts back, so looks a decent option.

Samara Star

Despite the fact she carries a penalty, the Crisford’s filly gets weight from two of her five rivals here.She showed plenty of nice attributes on debut when running out a ready course and distance winner. Travelling strongly into the home turn, she kicked clear of her pursuers under Pat Cosgrave, before displaying a willing attitude to keep up the gallop when asked for more close home. We know she handles the Tapeta, stays the trip, and with two of her conquered rivals second next time out, has some solid form in the book.

Arizona Gold

Andrew Balding’s handicap newcomer Fantalope is an interesting proposition at the head of affairs, but at what looks likely to be an each-way sort of price it is another debutant to this sphere that makes most betting appeal. Arizona Gold improved dramatically on two sprinting efforts when running over a mile here on her final starts as a juvenile to finish fourth. Plenty of winners have come out of that race including the horses in second, third, fifth and seventh. The latter three won handicaps off marks between 62 and 68, which makes this opening mark of 70 attainable. If ready to roll first time out this season, she could be in the frame.


A return to staying contest will no doubt be more to the liking of Gay Kelleway’s filly, having found 11f around Yarmouth too short last time. Before that East Anglian outing, she was second here over course and distance, from a mark a pound higher than the one she runs off on Tuesday. Man of the moment David Probert is in the saddle which can only boost confidence in the daughter of Teofilo. In the frame in five of her six all-weather outings, she clearly likes these conditions and if the first time visor can eke out a bit more, is a major player in the finale.
