Afraid Of Nothing a narrow favourite

This really looks as if it is going to be a competitive race and so current 5/2 favourite AFRAID OF NOTHING is going to have to be on her toes* (betting odds taken from Unibet at 18:21 GMT on Thursday, 11th June 2020).

She comes into action after a relatively poor debut in Listed company at Chitnilly on her last run. That was heavy going, however.

Afraid Of Nothing went well as a juvenile, banking back to back before that Chantilly trip. It means in our opinion that that last effort can be excused and she is one to watch.



Dark Regard with a bright handicap

There is a clear handicap favour going on for DARK REGARD near the bottom of the weights. This is a really tough filly who made her first outing on the all-weather in a Lingfield contest last week.

That run at Lingfield was after a 4-month break, but it was the form at the back end of 2019 when she scored a hattrick that really brings the appeal. She has a big chance and is value from 11/2* (betting odds taken from Unibet at 18:21 GMT on Thursday, 11th June 2020).

Strict Tempo looks to have more to come

Taking a look at STRICT TEMPO’S last run she posted at second in a field of nine in handicap action at Chelmsford City. She will be back after a 253-day break for this run.

There’s no reason why she shouldn’t be in the picture for this race. It has been four second-place finishes from her in her last five trips.

She only had the massively improved Alrajaa in front of her last time out, so is a big contender here from 7/2* (betting odds taken from Unibet at 18:21 GMT on Thursday, 11th June 2020).

The Rest Of The Field

Coming into the frame at near top weight is STAY CLASSY which isn’t going to help her chances. The filly scored a really good win at Lingfield back in December and has followed up with solid if unspectacular runs since then. Is likely to be a bit hampered off a mark of 88.

There have been some decent form from the course and distance winner STARLIGHT ROMANCE. That C&D success happened in January and she will have cheekpieces for the first time. It’s around 3 months since she’s been out when she took second in a handicap on the all-weather at Wolverhampton.

LADY OF ARAN had a tough time on her first Tapeta attempt last time out. She was at the back of the pack in that one. But she has made some notable runs. She won at course and distance back in 2017.

Another course and distance winner is DELILAH PARK who has some nice from behind her. She hasn’t been out of the top two in the last three runs, scoring once in that sequence. So the consistency has been there, but the handicapper has slapped a top-weight on her, so is going to have improved.

Predictions & Tips

This is actually a really good field that is coming into play for this Fillies’ Handicap. The favourite, AFRAID OF NOTHING does look a threat. But because of her step up to Listed company she struggled a bit, she needs some room to improve there.

DELILAH PARK from 9/2 looks a good fit* (betting odds taken from Unibet at 18:21 GMT on Thursday, 11th June 2020). The consistency has been there from the recent form and has the C&D score behind her. The handicapper hasn’t been nice to her, but that speaks volumes about her threat in this field.

The other we will note is DARK REGARD who has a good try out on the all-weather in her last run. There is room for improvement there and with the handicap on her side, that is likely to keep her very keen in this competitive race.
