PROPRIETY (5.05) should be worth the wait in the 1m 4f finale at Musselburgh.
The Cheveley Park Stud’s Galileo filly showed some promise for Sir Michael Stoute last season before decanting to David O’Meara and Propriety made an encouraging debut for her new trainer when a close second to G For Gabrial at Beverley.
The first-time visor certainly galvanised Propriety as she looked all over the winner when kicked a few lengths clear early in the straight before tiring. Re-opposing Mutamaded was only a half-length adrift in third and has since gone down fighting to Wise Eagle at Catterick. Propriety should have more scope for improvement.
On a moderate card, DREAMSELLER (4.35) is worth a bit extra in the Class 5 handicap over a mile. Tim Easterby’s gelding should be sharper for his fourth to Ventura Rascal at Pontefract ten days ago, only fading out of contention close home. This is a much easier mile and Dreamseller scored over course and distance last September on a sound surface. Makyon was a useful two-year-old, scoring twice and hitting a 96 rating, but lost his way completely last season. A gelding operation may help Makyon get back on track and Mark Johnston’s top weight is very well weighted these days.
