Tank to roll over ri­vals

Western Mail - - SPORT -

AWE­SOMETANK catches the eye as she makes her be­lated re­turn to ac­tion in the Ir­ish Lotto At tote­s­port.com Fil­lies’ Hand­i­cap at Chelms­ford.

Wil­liam Hag­gas’ charge showed some de­cent form last year, not least when run­ning sub­se­quent French 1000 Guineas win­ner Tep­pal to a neck at Ling­field back in Au­gust.

Awe­sometank went on to score in com­pet­i­tive nurs­eries at New­mar­ket and York, be­fore hav­ing to set­tle for fourth on her fi­nal start of the year when upped to Listed com­pany.

That cer­tainly was not a bad run as she fin­ished clear of the rest, although the form of that par­tic­u­lar race has not worked out overly well.

That said, this daugh­ter of In­tense Fo­cus was cer­tainly mak­ing strides to­wards the end of the cam­paign and should she pick up where she left off, Awe­sometank might take some beat­ing.

Shai­lene takes a drop in com­pany for the Bet In Play At tote­s­port.com Bri­tish EBF `Con­fined’’ Fil­lies’ Novice Stakes and must be one for the short list.

Win­ner of a Ling­field maiden on her de­but back in April, An­drew Bald­ing thought her good enough to be given a try in the Ch­ester Oaks.

That switch up to Listed com­pany proved be­yond her ca­pa­bil­i­ties at this stage, but she was far from dis­graced in fourth and this could be a nice con­fi­dence boost on the way to the Rib­bles­dale Stakes at Royal As­cot.

May­pole fi­nally got off the mark last time and can make it a swift dou­ble in the FCL Global For­ward­ing Mak­ing Lo­gis­tics Per­sonal Hand­i­cap at Wolver­hamp­ton.

The step up to a mile that day seemed to bring about a lit­tle ex­tra im­prove­ment in that Chep­stow novice heat and he ac­tu­ally runs a shade over a mile here.

That should not be an is­sue though and a mark of 78 looks fair enough for a pretty con­sis­tent per­former.

Coviglia can make his sec­ond start for Jac­que­line Coward a win­ning one in the first di­vi­sion of the FCL Per­son­alised Global Freight So­lu­tions Hand­i­cap.

He showed lit­tle in two starts for Der­mot Weld and three out­ings for David O’Meara, but he shaped with prom­ise when sec­ond at Ayr last week and is cur­rently on his low­est mark to date.

Man Of Har­lech is an­other who seems par­tic­u­larly well treated at present and should be fol­lowed in the Play Roulette At 188Bet Casino Hand­i­cap at Ling­field.

He was a pretty handy run­ner back in his day, but a bar­ren spell that stretches back to Novem­ber 2015 has seen his rat­ing plum­met from a high of 100 to his cur­rent perch of 79.
