Breathless Times did well to get up on the line last time out, finishing strongly but needing to rely on a photo to be crowned the winner by a nose. He tries a mile for the first time and if staying the extra furlong he will be a danger, however both trainer and jockey have struggled for winners in recent weeks so I am happy to look elsewhere.
Areen Heart has posted results of 132222 since returning to the all-weather but is yet to win in eleven runs over this trip and is another whose trainer arrives out of form so looks destined for minor honours again today.
Preference is for Tom Dascombe’s Arcanada who has two wins from three over course and distance. His last AW victory came off a mark of 107 and he returns off 103 today. He races for an in-form trainer who has a good strike rate at the course and has won two from two in the last two weeks.
ARCANDA (WIN) – NAP
