One win from two on Tuesday was a decent return with Thunder Beauty winning at drifted odds of 3/1! She was the best filly in the race and Danny Tudhope rode her that way, keeping it simple and going for home a long way from home where she won by many lengths.
Though this race is very competitive, I will still be having a small play on VINO VICTRIX who is trained by Hughie Morrison. I had this horse down as an improver last season when he won with a spare bit in hand over 1m 6f at Sandown where the form worked out quite nicely. He managed to win again the time after over today's C&D, beating a rival who he faces again in the shape of Al Kout, who he beat by 1.5L. For the rest of the 2021 season his form fell apart and he didn't quite run up to the same level of form, which wasn't good to see but he's come back fresh and more mature this season with two good efforts over 12f at Kempton, which goes to show his love for this track. The form of his most recent run looks quite strong with the winner running a big race in a Group race over 10f and horses in behind running well in defeat since. A return to 2m should see Vino Victrix in a much better light as he simply doesn't have the speed over shorter distances, and with two runs under his belt, today could be the best time to catch him with his win last year coming on his third run of the year.
As I eluded to at the beginning, this is a competitive race full of horses who have a chance, so it's only right to give them a mention:
Master Milliner will have his supporters, and will more than likely be well supported on the back of two good efforts before running a poor race at Royal Ascot, where he had no chance on official ratings, so it wasn't a surprise to see him tailed off at the back. A return to form will see him run a big race in this, but I think he is susceptible to an improver, though the jockey booking suggests a big run is on the way.
Call My Bluff will also be a big market fancy in this on the back of his big effort in the Chester Plate, where he finished 3rd on the back of a long layoff. He isn't exactly well-handicapped, but does enjoy the AW and looks a solid contender.
Moon King is well-handicapped on older pieces of form when trained by Ralph Beckett, but he has been seen over hurdles recently for his new trainer Charlie Longsdon where he didn't set the world alight. He is back on the flat and has to be respected on a relatively low mark.
