A chance is taken on BRAVE PROSPECTOR despite top-weight; Ingleby Lady and Tajneed join Sunrise Safari on the list of dangers. Peter Chapple-Hyam's horse was an excellent third to Royal Rock at Ascot when last seen in October and this course and distance winner looks a player on this return to action. Admittedly he doesn't have a good record fresh, so if he fails to fire then it may pay to side with Tajneed who belied all expectations with a second to Lenny Bee at Beverley last month. That form is working out pretty well and he is handicapped to win a big race this year, although he might need some rain in order to win today. Magaling needs a market check as he drops in trip on this first run for a new shrewd yard, Hotham is consistent and should be cherry ripe after three recent runs, whilst Sunrise Safari impressed at Leicester last month but this looks a much tougher assignment. Red Cape may not win that often but he is handicapped to oblige sooner rather than later, Baldemar is consistent and may appreciate this less demanding finish and the yard can do no wrong in sprints at the track, whilst the drop in trip will suit Esoterica but he looks poorly handicapped. Of more interest is Ingleby Lady who signed off last year with a fine second in the inaugural running of the Bronze Cup at Ayr, whilst Oldjoesaid and Whistledownwind have not been with their new yards for long and are not to be ignored. Himalya looks fairly weighted, Buachaill Dona will appreciate a return to a straight finish after the Roodee last time, whilst Nota Bene was a winner at Newmarket when last seen but is 5lb higher as a result. As the list of runners indicates this is competitive fayre but we are happy to plump for Brave Prospector.
