WILD CLARY (best price 7-1) could never get involved in a warm maiden over today’s course but at the same time, he did more than enough to offer plenty of encouragement for the future and returning to the Berkshire venue with enough knowledge to execute a more rounded performance, Richard Hannon’s colt is fancied to make more of an impression this time around. 

Not unfancied on his debut by any means) sent off 11-1), a slow beginning soon set the son of Dark Angel on the backfoot and, in a race where the entire 20-strong field converged on the stands side rail, he found himself in a position where he was blocked in behind a wall of horse.

Only extricating himself from the tangled mess inside the final furlong, he finished off his race to suggest he had plenty more to offer with a smoother passage and hailing from a yard who appear to have a nice bunch of juveniles in their midst this season, this well-made colt can add his name to the list of ones to follow.

The race won by Lethal Levi over today’s course last month was highlighted by a very strong speed figure and with the form already beginning to take shape, it makes sense to side with fifth placed UNDER THE TWILIGHT (best price 12-1), who shaped better than the bare result suggested. 

Hung out to dry with her stall position at the Berkshire venue, the six-year-old mare had no choice but to be taken back to obtain some cover at the tail of the field but, as a result, she was left with mountain to climb at the business end. 

That said, she made a brave fist of a bad job by making up quite a lot of the lost deficit against the track bias and considering two in behind her that day, Mitrosonfire and Woolhampton, have both run well since, her performance deserves marking up. 

Although most of his best form lately has been over six furlongs, he does have plenty of solid efforts to her name over further to call on and nicely draw in the middle of the pack today, a big run looks imminent from Michael Blake’s inmate.

Under The Twilight - 0.5pts e/w @ 12/1

CONCLUDING CALL (best price 5-1) looked a filly to keep on side when scoring with plenty of panache at Navan last time out and with the distinct possibility she could be more than just a handicapper further down the line, Willie McCreery’s inmate can sprinkle a little bit of stardust over this field. 

An eye-catching fourth from a bad draw on her seasonal bow in a useful maiden at The Curragh, the daughter of Holy Roman Emperor was faced with trying to turn the tables around with Uncanny at the Meath track but despite the market going heavily in favour of her old rival, she managed to do so with some ease. 

The way she travelled throughout the mile journey before quickening well in the closing stages was impressive to say the least and, with the figures she posted saying she’s some way north of a horse rated just 69 at the time, even a slight adjustment shouldn’t be enough to prevent her making some sort of impact on handicap debut. 

Concluding Call - 1pt e/w @ 5/1

ASA (best price 9-2) gave the impression she would have landed a similar contest at market Rasen last time out but for fluffing her lines at the final two hurdles and she is fancied to make amends over tonight’s easier brush obstacles. 

Returning to the fray following a 56-day break Philip Kirby’s mare was extremely well supported to make up for a disappointing display at Wetherby previously and for nine tenths of the journey at the Lincolnshire track, she looked like justifying joint favouritism. 

Travelling strongly heading down to two out, she proceeded to get in a little tight and bidding to make amends at the final flight, she made an even worse mistake which ultimately proved her undoing. 

Just run out of the argument by the strong finishing Kosasiempre, the winner has subsequently gone on to boost the form with a tidy victory on her return to the same C&D and with tonight’s trip and ground ideal for this five-year-old, the long wait for her breakthrough success can some to an end. 

Asa - 1pt @ 9/2
