Good To Firm At Sandown Park

Sandown Park first due off @ 14h30

Sandown Park hosts a competitive seven race card on Saturday with the listed BetMGM: It’s Showtime Scurry Stakes (15h40), the highlight.

With no rain over the last week, track conditions are likely to remain good to firm, good in places.

Eight three-year-old fillies compete for the listed prize over the straight five furlongs, with winning connections pocketing £31,191.

Silvestre De Sousa retains the ride on Adaay In Devon, and they can get back on the winning trail for trainer Rod Millman.

Two victories this season, including listed success at Bath, suggest she has improved this season, whilst her best form could possibly be found in her placed efforts behind some quality male sprinters.

Two lengths behind Montassib at Doncaster were followed by a running on second to Jasour at Ascot, and then last month she was third to the exciting Elite Status in Newbury’s Carnarvon Stakes.

On those three pieces of form, Adaay In Devon sets the standard as she looks to double her Listed tally, and a drop back in distance from six to this stiff five furlongs is a positive.

Star Style may be able to make the most of this significant drop-in class in the Win Up To £2M With Golden Goals Handicap (16h15).

The daughter of Zoustar made a huge impression on her racecourse debut at Newbury in April, winning with such authority that her connections ran her in the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket on only her second start.

After taking a keen hold and making the early running, she battled to go on with her more fancied rivals and trailed home one from last.

Richard Hannon has given his filly time to recover and there is plenty scope for progress off her initial handicap mark of 86. Top weight Mount Teide, from the in-form Andrew Balding yard, looks the obvious danger.

Tom Marquand and William Haggas team up with the sole three-year-old filly Chorus in the Darley British EBF Maiden Stakes at 16h50. With her sex allowance and judged on her seasonal return at Ascot, she looks the one they will all have to catch over the ten-furlong trip.

The Kingman filly was narrowly denied by Godolphin’s unbeaten Diamond Rain who is officially rated 106 after her subsequent victory in listed class at Newbury last month. That form looks best here.
