POSITIVITY can continue the fantastic run of the Smart juveniles although form lines suggest that Gilt Edge Girl and Bounty Box could take a hand in the finish. Brian Smart has a twenty five per cent strike rate with his juveniles in October and they're running exceptionally well. The selection showed promise on each of her first two starts prior to contesting the Watership Down Stud Sales Race at Ascot where she wasn't disgraced. The return to maiden company should see her finish there or thereabouts. Bounty Box has run well in two fair maidens and wouldn't need to improve significantly on the form that she's shown already to go close. Gilt Edge Girl may have been a shade unfortunate to run into a couple of above average types when returning a beaten favourite at Nottingham; Clive Cox's stable has found a bit of form after a slow season and she should have a say in the outcome. The best of Slant's form puts her in the picture whilst Three Ducks is an interesting newcomer but we'll take Positivity.
