On to division 2 (2.10pm) and a horse who has been crying out for a step up to 6F in the shape of the David Brown-trained filly SWIRRAL EDGE. Her form figures of ‘5854’ might not scream ‘winner-in-waiting’ but that’s not such a bad thing as she’s yet to show her true hand to the handicapper and is able to run here off a lowly mark of just 64.

A speedily bred sort out of a half-sister to the juvenile Group 2 winner Wunders Dream, I’ll be amazed if she’s not a good deal better than that rating and the fact she went off as short as 9/2 on her Newmarket debut back in April suggests she is held in some regard at home. For the record she finished a far from shabby fifth that day and the horses that finished in front of her have franked the form since.

Wind the clock forward five months and it’s her two two runs in September – following a 123-day absence – that mark her down as a potential nursery winner over this trip. Both were over the minimum of 5f and on each occasion she was noted keeping on well for pressure inside the final furlong without being knocked around. Today’s extra should prove ideal then and I also like the booking of Fergal Lynch, who is having a tremendous season in the north and has a 28% (5-18) strike rate on the stable runners.
