AURORA GRAY (Lingfield, 2.15) impressed when she landed a competitive race of its type three weeks ago and she looks a solid bet to follow up off her revised mark today. The grey daughter of Rip Van Winkle displayed a sharp turn of foot to transform an uncompromising position on the home turn into a winning one and a similar change of gear could be enough to see her supplement that success given the speed figure she recorded that day.
On the subject of in-form fillies, SUMMER ICON (Lingfield, 2.50) appears a fair wager to land the handicap for the fairer sex over seven furlongs. Mick Channon's charge tried to make the running over a mile at the Surrey venue last time and only gave way late on when the useful Somethingthrilling swept past late on. The selection reverts to seven furlongs today and that could be the catalyst to another winning performance as she remains feasibly handicapped and prominent at the head of my figures.
However, the seven-year-old did very little wrong at Dunstall Park at the weekend when nabbed late on by the strongly-supported Gold Flash and he can gain compensation with the talented Lewis Edmunds doing the steering.
