Kuwait Station is a big price at 14s on the best of his 2018 formg, which did taper off a little bit toward the end of his 2yo campaign. He is a big unit though and perhaps the gelding operation will see him prove a more settled and progressive 3yo. David O’Meara’s inmate has plenty of work on his hands here with the very interesting King Of Tonga and one or two other unexposed types, but I am hopeful he can hold his own off a mark of 86 if stripping fit enough first time out.
I backed this free-going and tidy hurdler at big prices in a good 2m3f juvenile handicap at Newbury last time out and apart from being a bit too keen to finish off his race over the trip, he once again shaped with a reasonable degree of promise. The drop back to two miles is sure to help his cause and I think he has what it takes to get his two market rivals on the stretch here under Danny Cook.
On bare form, My Charity will be hard to beat in this 2m3f maiden hurdle, but that well-backed Graeme McPherson trained runner aside, this is quite a poor race and at the prices, the Ian Williams trained One More Fleurie looks the bet. He made his hurdling debut over 2m6f at Ludlow last time out, but was far too keen off the slow pace to land a blow late in the day. For the first 3/4s of the contest though, this 5yo went about his work in a likeable fashion, travelling and jumping quite nicely under Tom O'Brien. Will Kennedy takes over today, this three furlong drop in trip will do no harm to his chances and I’m intrigued to see how he runs here.
Hamariyna is a warm order for this 1m1f maiden having finished 3rd on debut at Leopardstown. Michael Halford’s 3yo ran to an RPR of 69 and Topspeed of 64 there, a solid start but hardly what you could call a clear view of class ability. Johnny Murtagh’s Sarah Jessica finished 6th from a wide draw at Gowran Park on her debut, running to an RPR of 63 - just a few pounds below the market leader - and a moderate but fair Topspeed of 48. The daughter of Makfi was all at sea from around 4 out to 1 out, but she put in solid late work, suggesting a step up in trip is what she wants and at 16/1, she appears to be the clear value on bare form to date.
