Florida Filly is rather experienced but makes her debut on the All-Weather today. She won twice at Hamilton on good-to-firm but was below par on her last two starts. She was reported to be lame after her last start at Ripon but no explanation was given for her poor showing at York. She has top weight today and it just seems like a very big ask. Others are preferred.

Dakota Elegance was fifth on her debut and improved when switching to the All-Weather at Kempton. She’s not been beaten by far in her two starts and is due a bit of luck. She’s well fancied today but the drip back to five furlongs isn’t altogether convincing, given that her relations have won over six and further.

Sabah Al Ward was fourth on her debut at Lingfield when she ran creditably well despite being keen and hanging left during the final furlong. Connections are in good form and the daughter of Showcasing shouldn’t have a problem with the distance. She should improve for her debut and she gains a slight bit of weight off her rivals. She has a good chance to take her first victory today.

SABAH AL WARD (WIN) 18:00 Chelmsford

Rakurai has only ran the one time, finishing down the field in a Kempton maiden over seven furlongs. She’s very well bred, by the late Deep Impact and Lightening Pearl, meaning she is a relation of Japanese Grade One winner Santono Crown. Her debut was a year ago and she returns to the track as a three-year-old. She’s interesting but she has a lot against her today.

Mashaaer is by far the most experienced in the field and she does have a very good chance at finally winning today. She’s been slightly under par in her last few races but she was fifth in the Sandringham at Royal Ascot and was runner up at Newmarket to recent Group One second Laurel. That form is incredibly good and she’ll be hard to beat today.

Pussycat Eyes is a rare runner under the sole ownership of Michael Tabor, with it being even rarer that he has placed her in the care of someone that isn’t of the O’Brien dynasty. The recipients are the duo of Simon and Ed Crisford. She was fourth on her debut in September and blew the start that day. She will be better off for the extra furlong today and this well bred filly by Churchill might usurp the favourite.
