Representing a yard in flying form, RIVER CAM will likely prove a warm order in the opener. A runner-up over 6f in all three outings to date, she’s worth a try over this shorter trip and is clear of Flight Of Thunder on these terms. The latter’s best efforts so far came in claiming company and a newcomer may prove a bigger threat. Of those, Rebel Soldier Boy is a half-brother to three winners over the minimum trip and preferred to Modular Magic and Lincoln Gamble.
Rebel Soldier Boy Sepoy colt out of Intrusion.
Modular Magic Swiss Spirit gelding out of Lucy Parsons.
Lezardrieux 100-1 (9-3) Steadied start, held up in rear, hung left throughout, never dangerous, 9th of 11, 11 1/2l behind Arriba Arriba (9-3) at Catterick 6f stks (5) gf in Sep.
