Steve Ryder has three selections for Tuesday's racing.
The Ger Lyons trained PIRATE JENNY (best priced at 6-4) made a really encouraging debut at Navan last month and she should be able to get off the mark at the second attempt. The daughter of Exceed And Excel finished 2nd against the males when beaten only ½ length over 5 1/2f staying on well at the finish.
The form of that race has worked out extremely well with the winner HMS Endeavour winning on his next start, the third Red Lacewing winning at Naas on her next start, the fourth Exquisite Acclaim winning on his next start and even the sixth Pearl Palinka winning on her next start. Pirate Jenny faces competition from a couple of well-bred rivals such as Coolmeen Royal and Scholar, and Ecoutez who also ran well on her debut when 3rd but I would be disappointed if Pirate Jenny were beaten now stepped up to 6f.
It is rather rare that George Boughey trained newcomers need their first runs but his stable showed last week with Foxy Rascal that it can be the case and as a result I feel MR ALAN (best priced at 7-4) could be worth taking a chance on in this maiden. The son of Ulysses finished 7th of 12 on his debut at Yarmouth but that race is working out particularly well for the course. The winner New Science has subsequently won a listed race at Ascot, the second Reach For The Moon has won twice since including the Group 3 Solario Stakes at Sandown, the third Papa Cocktail won on his next start, the fourth Aswan won the valuable Nursery at Glorious Goodwood, Find has won since and even the sixth Zechariah has won twice since.
Mr Alan has been given 123 days off the track and now returns in a race which Capital Theory sets a beatable standard with a rating of 83. Both Million Thanks and Allegedly are well bred newcomers but preference goes to Mr Alan who can hopefully take a big step forward from his debut effort and get off the mark at the second attempt.
The Joe Parr trained ROMAN DYNASTY (best priced at 5-1) was a rare debut winner for the yard at this course and he now looks interesting back here having been gelded. The son of Mehmas finished well beaten in Class 2 and 3 handicaps this season but appreciated the drop into a Class 4 0-85 handicap last time at Newmarket when beaten only a neck in 2nd.
That run came in first time cheekpieces and connections now fit Roman Dynasty with a first time visor on his first start since being gelded. He has had 67 days off the track and should prove hard to beat off the same mark, back at Wolverhampton and drawn in Stall 2.
