My Silent Song

J: Paul Mulrennan

T: Ed Dunlop

Dual Pontefract winner (1m, good to firm) who finished last of 12 on her Southwell reappearance (1m, AW) this month; needs the longer trip and application of a hood to make a difference and she could probably do without any more rain.

Form & Verdict

Bit better with each start (all 7f), beating the reopposing Trans Montana by half a length (in receipt of 2lb) on Lingfield's AW 29 days ago; got on top towards the finish on that occasion and appeals as one who could have more to offer now stepping up to 1m for her nursery debut.

Improved form when narrowly denied on her 1m Thirsk nursery debut (good to firm; Bungley well behind) 19 days ago; raised 4lb but still much respected for a yard which has won this race twice since 2011.

Went close on nursery debut at Thirsk (1m, good) and fair fourth of six at Pontefract later in September (1m, good to firm); didn't run badly when again fourth at Nottingham (1m2f, good to firm) on reappearance and may improve for the run, but she needs to be better than ever to take this.

Form & Verdict

Successful in Class 6 nursery at Musselburgh (1m) last month, opening her account at the eighth attempt; however, she was well behind Signorina Merisi at Thirsk last time and latest Haydock fourth was only respectable; probably vulnerable to less exposed types.

Has struggled this year, coming 13lb down the weights, including back on to Tapeta latest; three turf wins came from the front (all in late summer) and there's other pace in here, leaving her hard to recommend.

All three wins when making the running at about 1m on turf, most recently 13 months ago; has dropped a fair way in the weights since low-key course runs at the end of 2022 but just muddling through back on turf since.

Currently 3-6 in August, 0-21 otherwise, but she turned in another ordinary effort last time behind Touchwood; well treated now but hard to recommend and Motarajel looks her trainer's best shot.
