Huge prices and beaten a long way in four starts in novices (6f-7f); this is more realistic in a first-time tongue-tie but cannot be recommended as yet.

Beast Of Burden

9st 5lb

J: Ray Dawson

T: Ronald Thompson

Unexposed 4yo who improved on previous efforts when making a successful handicap debut with a tongue-tie fitted at Newcastle (1m, Tapeta) in May; twice well held since, but the step up to 1m proved too much at that track last month and she makes plenty of appeal back at this trip down in grade.

T: Ronald Thompson

Lightly raced 4yo who got off the mark in a 6f handicap here (tongue-tie added) in May and was reported to have been unsuited by the track at Hamilton last time; now steps up to 1m but her dam was placed over middle distances and she still has untapped potential; in the mix back on AW.

Sole win (from 24 attempts) came back in March 2021 and this summer's turf form for Iain Jardine has been patchy; however, she's on a competitive mark judged on C&D exploits earlier this year and the return to this course for her stable debut could be a positive; not ruled out.
