SILVER LINNET was well held in a competitive nursery at Doncaster but may be worth another chance in a race where few are ruled out with confidence. Bossy Kitty and Bronze Beau are two that hold obvious claims. Tim Easterby's filly showed ability in qualifying for a mark before finishing three quarters of a length behind Bossy Kitty on her fourth outing; racing prominently on each occasion. She was always on the pace at Doncaster on her nursery bow but weakened quickly to finish well held. She may be able to bounce back in this race which she may find easier to dominate. Bossy Kitty is 3lbs worse off than when they clashed at Ripon having posted a decent effort on ground that may have been softer than ideal at Sandown on her latest outing. She's 2lbs lower and should be in the mix. Bronze Beau can be rated a shade unfortunate not to have picked up a race by now and is another to have been given a chance by the assessor but he remains vulnerable to less exposed horses. Lieu Day Louie and Classlin are two such horses whilst Jack Luey may have found the soft ground against him at Catterick and had shown ability prior to that. Flow Chart is yet another that rates a mention in a typically competitive nursery but we'll take Silver Linnet to fly home.
