CLASSIC CHARM (best price 10-3) has built a great affinity with today’s C&D and with her also seemingly in her part under testing requirements, everything looks set fair for the next big effort from Dean Ivory’s in-form filly.
A match champion of an aggressive handicap when busting her duck at the thirteenth attempt, the daughter of Rip Van Winkle did not need to wait too much time to add to her tally because she ran out an even more persuasive scorer on her return trip each time out. Jumping into the lead three out off the back of strong fractions, the three-year-old kept her foot on the pedal all the way to the line to score with a long-looking seven spans and it came as no real surprise to find she’d posted the fastest pace figure onto the seven-race card plus that including following Group race protagonist, Miss O Connor. Despite being slapped across the wrists from the assessor, the numbers indicate she’s capable of more and she is fancied to keep her unbeaten track record intact.
SAIKUNG (NAP) (best cost 2-1) conducted an impressive winner at Nottingham even though a tardy start and she seems one to continue negative based on that performance.
Normally slow into her stride, Charlie Hills’ filly was again true to her word from the first paces at the Midland place, however notably she settled nicely and was noted travelling well turning at home. Picking up readily as the powerful speed dropped within the last two furlongs, the girl of Acclamation spanned by her field using a sharp twist of foot at a brief space of time and she ended up winning moving away with plenty left in the tank. Definitely a filly right about the money at the moment, the forecast rain during the morning will do her opportunities no harm, and with the excellent Sebastian Woods in the plate (who’ll drop out her and give her lots of time to find her stride), she should have all bases covered.
THE PECKHAMPOUNCER (best price 7-2) is a really likeable type and following his breakthrough victory at Tipperary another day, he’s strongly fancied to keep his progress over a course that witnessed him run a huge race on introduction.
Not quite good enough for the likes of Sunday Sovereign and Arizona back in the hot maiden back early May, David Broad’s colt, however, did shape miles greater than his 50-1 chances suggested and his following performances have shown that streak for no fluke. According to his next few starts, the son of Cappella Sansevero sent up at the Limerick Junction place with high hopes of finally getting off the mark despite hurrying above a sharp five-furlongs and wanting soft earth for the first timehe came during the examination with flying colours. Very strong at the company end of that well-run event five days past, this big colt simply relished the easy underfoot c0onditions and with the prediction suggesting the Co Kildare track is in for a soaking at the build up to the race, he should be in his element more than many.
CONCIERGE (best price 4-1) has a bit to locate strictly about the book with Mercenary Rose on their meeting at Goodwood recently, but well drawn back on the all-weather, there is more than a fair chance that George Scott’s filly could turn the tables on her old rival.
In a race in which the large numbers were leveled, the girl of Society Rock got hung out to dry being made to switch and race down the un-favoured centre part of the trail and while Mercenary Rose was one of several to benefit ploughing a furrow up the nearside railing, she came home strongly away from where the major action took place. On this evidence, the blinkers she wore first time certainly did not do any harm and having been unfortunate on her only prior visit to the track last September (clipped heels and almost fell out two ), the three-year-old filly could hold her own at somewhat warmer waters compared to her last two starts.
BUZZ KILLINGTON (best price 33-1) remains a bit of an unknown amount in several respects, but he has at least shown enough ability in three starts to justify a Little interest at a big price in a race up for grabs. ?? Unsurprisingly outpaced twice over five-furlongs for a horse having a stout pedigree,” Noel Meade’s gelding shaped nicely from a poor draw Naas out time over a furlong extra, but even sohe looked as though he would be seen to greater effect over farther. Up to a distance here tonight, then will result in further progress and if he handles the floor, he can easily outrun his outrageous dawn odds.
BLAIRMAYNE’s (best price 14-1) past two runs have been better than the bare results suggest and he is worth a pop at a huge cost to rebound back to his very best form above a track that has served him well previously. A creditable second of individuals who raced up the stands’ side weapon in the Scurry Premier Handicap here two starts ago (3lb from disability ), Natalie Lupini’s gelding have no rush whatsoever at Leopardstown when going well in supporting the pace on his most recent outing. Working on the grounds that he might have gone close to winning the night along with the other unlucky horse at the race Guru Matt (won next time) is chalked up in 6-1, the son of Zebedee seems buttery at his own morning odds.
