ROLLICK is nicely bred and is dropped in class for this second start. Her debut was more than a year ago but she’s been working well and here trainer has been firing in the winners.
Bourbon Rebellion didn’t enjoy being upped to a mile on turf here earlier this month and trainer Eoin Harty has a strong record at this level, especially with horses switching surfaces.
Factor Around is another to consider despite having had plenty of chances now. She is another who should be happier back on this dirt track.
ITSAGIMME’S GIRL has a few wins over a mile to her name but should be hard to beat over shorter given she’s dropping right down the classes. She has struck in better races than this and her jockey Samy Camacho has a high win rate at the track.
Southern N’ Sassy was in good form before her break and is rarely out of the first three in this grade.
She should be thereabouts, while Tolly Ho won with something left in the tank over slightly shorter here last time out. She clocked a fair time for the level of competition.
I’MTHEKATSMEOW was well backed before having to settle for second over course and distance last time out. She was bumped a couple of times, which didn’t help, and there’s more to come on this third career run.
Hifalutin was just half a length off the pace in third here last time. She finished off well so moving up slightly in distance could be a wise move.
Vivamente looks to have a decent chance on debut. She has been working well and comes from a yard that boasts a 37% win rate in this sort of race. Her jockey has been in cracking form too.
JACKIES DREAM is coming down in class here despite finishing a decent third here last time out. That was over this distance on turf last time and she’ll be right there if repeating that returning to the dirt.
Mia Angelina is another taking on easier rival after a fair run here latest. She has placed form at this level and is lightly raced for her age so there should be more to come.
Maliced is already proven on the dirt here and had more than four lengths in hand when scoring earlier this month. She’s up in class but can progress.
PROFESSIONAL has a handy inside draw and has the benefit of in-form rider Antonio Gallardo getting back on board. He rode him to his victory over course and distance in December and he has been thereabouts on all his outings since.
Barrel Of Stout comes down in grade and was a close second the last time he tackled this level of opposition. The yard has been sending out plenty of winners in the past couple of weeks.
Flight Deck is another to consider despite a modest run against better rivals last time.
LONG STORY SHORT landed a convincing success at Gulfstream Park last time when scooting in over this distance. That was against maidens so the opposition today is a bit stronger but the trip suits well and she looks the one to beat.
Little Natalia won by eight lengths on her course debut earlier this month. She was in the lead from a long way out and should be competitive again going up in grade.
Return The Favor has a decent draw and has shown her best form over this distance. She didn’t get the clearest of runs when sixth here latest.
GOT THE GIST looked more than a little rusty when coming back from almost a year off at Gulfstream latest. She was right there until her lack of a run kicked in late on. She landed two good wins in better races than this at Aqueduct last year and should be a lot fitter for that return.
Animauxselle has run well on both starts lately with a solid fourth in this grade last time. The trip suits and she gets an upgrade in the saddle today.
Mancora had almost three lengths in hand when winning last time but was disqualified for drifting.
ESOR was just run out of it in the final half-furlong here last time so dropping back in trip looks a wise move. He is likely to blast out of the stalls again and should find it easier to hold on over this distance.
Kings Highway has not been setting the world on fire but is switching from turf to dirt and is taking a major drop in class. His trainer has a good record when making that move.
Imperial Greatness has a tough wide draw but has been placed in similar races on his past two runs so can’t be dismissed.
RECODED is coming back from a little break but worked well on the track the other day and is taking a drop in class. She has been at her best over this distance and comes from the ideal draw over the trip.
Mille Fleurs has been showing some positive signs in her trackwork ahead of this debut. She is bred to sprint so keep an eye on the betting.
Similar comments apply to Ski Bunny although the yard doesn’t have the greatest of record with debutantes. Lily Chaser wasn’t disgraced in third here latest and is clear best of the rest.
