TOSEN WISH (Best price 5-1) shaped with a huge amount of promise on his debut over today’s C&D and with the form of the race working out a treat since, the son of New Bay rates a confident vote to improve on his fifth-place finish on his return visit. 

Slowly away at the Co Kildare venue, Takashi Kodama’s colt was switched to race over towards the supposed favoured nearside but as it turned out, he ended up being position on the wrong side to the track. Moreover, he got his run blocked on several occasions as he was trying to come with a run and by the time he managed to extricate himself from the pocket, the mains players had skipped over the horizon. That said, the way he finished off his race strongly suggested he would have been involved if things had gone more his way but considering it was his first racecourse appearance, to say it was an encouraging start would be an understatement. Although the time figure wasn’t earth-shattering by any means and he has to find a bit with the likes of Neo Soul and Secret Magician on that score, at least the form of the race 14 days ago has begun to work out well with both Siesta beach and Dancing Rebel winning since. Whether stall 9 today ends up being the place to be only time will tell, but providing racing down the middle proves no negative, a sharper exit from the gates should be this promising juvenile right in the thick of the action at the business end. Of the rest, Life In Colour was another to catch the eye in the same race and she also has to come into calculations with expected improvement to come.

MADAME TANTZY (best price 7-1) has struck up a nice affinity to today’s Rowley Mile over the past two seasons and another positive display looks likely with conditions to suit. 

A wide-margin winner in a fast time on her first visit to HQ, Eve Johnson Houghton’s mare probably needed the run on her seasonal reappearance back in April on her return visit, but she quickly resumed winning ways on her latest adventure last time out. In what turned out to be a relatively modest early gallop, the daughter of Champs Elysees took the race by the scruff of the neck at the halfway stage and she maintained her advantage all the way to the line despite being hard pressed by the well-backed favourite Mobadra. Similarly tenacious in victory at Goodwood previously, on that occasion her time figure was extremely good for the grade and with the same blinkers on that appear to have taken her game to whole new level in recent times, the five-year-old hopefully won’t be too far away in her bid to complete the hat trick.

WIZARD D’AMOUR (best price 11-2) ran well in a race already beginning to take shape at Wolverhampton last time out and with tonight’s contest looking to be slightly weaker on paper, Karl Burke’s grey is well worth chancing despite this being his first run at the track. 

After two promising performances, the son of Dutch Art finally delivered the goods at the third time of asking and although he failed to make much of an impact on his next two starts in handicap company back on turf, a return to the all-weather saw him produce close to a personal best. In what turned out to be a strongly run race for the grade at the Dunstall Park venue 16 days ago, the three-year-old gelding stayed on stoutly in the latter stages to finish his race off well into third and with the time figure lights flashing on green in the post-race analysis, it’s been no surprise to see the likes of If You Dare and Billy Mill frank the form since. Allowed to race of the same mark here tonight, only a bad trip from a wide draw can prevent him from being a major player.
