SWEET PURSUIT tends to peak in high summer, recording form figures in handicaps in July and August of 311311146 (5-9). The fourth place came in a 16-runner contest and the sixth place can be excused, as it came on her belated reappearance this year. It’s possible that she’ll need another run before reaching peak fitness but she's still worth chancing in the 6f Download The Marathonbet App Fillies’ Handicap at Windsor on Monday (6.50).
IDEAL CANDY did herself no favours by tearing off into the lead at Doncaster last time, on a day the track was eating frontrunners alive. She could only finish a 12-length seventh of 12 but fared third best of those ridden up with the pace and sixth home Kwanza, described as ‘chased leaders’, left her ten-length defeat well behind when scoring at Pontefract on Friday night at 8-1. Fifth-placed Seek The Moon (‘chased leaders’) also gave the form a boost when fourth of 15 (8-1) at Ripon on her next start. Ideal Candy tends to reserve her best efforts for Beverley, where her record reads 251324 (1-6), and she can reward each-way support in the 1m2f George Kilburn Memorial Handicap on Monday evening (7.30).
