Betting

Forecast

Maybellene (11/4), Queens Blade (4/1), Callipygian (5/1), Sparkling Breeze (11/2), The Ginger Bullet (6/1), Two Hearts (6/1), Tenbobmillionaire (20/1), Courtney Rose (33/1), Fulbeck Rose (33/1), Champagne Victory (40/1), Intrinsic Bond (50/1), Samsar (50/1), Teasel's Rock (50/1)

Verdict

Queens Blade won a similar race at Redcar earlier this month when Maybellene, Sparkling Breeze and Intrinsic Bond were all unplaced, though the Easterby filly now has a penalty. Two Hearts is having a first run over 6f but has placed twice in modest nurseries in recent starts. Callipygian drops into this grade for the first time but she’s not gone on from a promising debut at Beverley. A half-brother to three winners, it’s disappointing to see THE GINGER BULLET in a seller but he has a decent draw and Paul Hanagan rides so he gets another chance.
