Favourite Flying Candy is best in at the weights in the 5.5f sprint (12.25pm), but she is dropping back in trip after a break and drawn widest, and at a bigger price I’m backing Mustaffiz.
A well-bred three year old, purchased out of the Shadwell draft last autumn, he looked a sprinter to follow at this sort of level when beating a next-time-out winner in his maiden at Vichy three starts back.
However, connections upped him straight into Listed company, which has proved too big an ask, finishing in behind the likes of Berneuil and Suesa last time.
These are calmer waters, he should have a good pace to track and looks capable of going close at this level.
12.25pm La Teste – 1pt win, 0.5pt place Mustaffiz @ 8-1 (Bet365, Paddy Power, Betfair, 7-1 elsewhere)
