Hazarfiya folded tamely in the Cheshire Oaks last time but will be fancied to go close at this level given her trainer’s good strike rate at the track. But Saeed bin Suroor also has a fine strike rate here and BEAUVAIS so the vote. The latter made a winning start over 1m3f at Ripon last month and may well shrug off a penalty with normal progress. Bayshore Freeway returns to novice company after landing a handicap at Thirsk and should go well while Thimbleweed showed promise when placed over a shorter trip at Ripon on her introduction and is worth a second glance.
