More mundane fare and SINGLEB can overcome a poor draw to beat Romany Nights and Cratageus. Singleb is bidding today for a hat-trick having taken sellers at Folkestone and Leicester. A noted "swisher", he is clearly with his own ideas about the game but that didn't stop new connections sticking their hand up to the tune of 9400 guineas. Romany Nights is fairly exposed at this grade. Connections try Kylie Manser, who has won previously on him, in an attempt to rediscover some of his better form. Cratageus has showed a glimmer of ability in previous starts. The visor is tried today in an effort to convert potential into success. Palais Polaire won here off a mark of 47. With Jonathan Geake's runners performing a little better of late, it would be no surprise to see her go close. Miss Phoebe was outpaced at Wolverhampton before running on with a degree of purpose. Eleonara is on handicap introduction and is closely monitored in the market. A race that lacks scope and Singleb can graduate out of plating company this afternoon.
