Recuerda historical data/form

A competitive start to proceedings as a case can be made for several of these none more so than (1) MATTINA FORZA who has shown useful form and ability in both starts to play a leading role in the outcome. The same could be said of (6) AMERICAN BEACH though who is likely to pose a threat after two promising efforts of her own. (5) MANTRA hit the woodwork on debut and should be scoring soon with improvement expected while (2) VICTORY CAT will also be wiser to the task after a promising 4th on debut.

Planissimo historical data/form

(7) MUTUAL finished second albeit three lengths behind the winner on debut but was a further four lengths ahead of the third-place finisher and with the benefit of that outing should have more to offer. With natural improvement expected over the extra 200m he's hard to oppose. Both (4) KING WOOTY and (6) MOREMI are also likely to build on pleasing debut efforts while (5) PALUS ARGENTEUS has shown enough lately to get a look in too.

Harmless 110

che g Anodin - Snowbright (Pivotal)

3 8-13
 - 

Classy colt who has been disappointing in both starts this term. Capable of better

Harmless historical data/form

Hard to assess. If at his best and on best form (8) HARMLESS should have a leading role to play. However he has fluffed his lines in both starts this year so is no confident selection. Top-rated (2) MARKHOR and top-weight (1) FIREBIRD SONG (only filly in the race) should be competitive too while (3) MORSAN who lost his unbeaten record last time when attempting to complete a hat-trick is also capable of posing a threat. (4) TONNENCOURT has done little wrong and is capable of upsetting the applecart.

Jaazmah Athbah historical data/form

Quality fillies' Group III contest. (3) AL RYMA MONLAU returned to winning ways last time her second success in three starts this year and need only reproduce that form to be involved in the outcome. Top-rated (1) AL HAFFANAH has to concede weight to all but has the class and ability to play a leading role too. Unexposed (4) AKSINYA has also shown enough to make her presence felt.

(1) BOBBIO is one of many that is suited to this course and distance. He gets the narrow vote to win the lucky last race. (12) JOHN APPLESEED and (10) RUE DES ETOILES are in good heart and should be very competitive in this line-up. (11) MAELINE is in good form and is clearly in with a winning chance as well.
