It’s not a quality full card at Wolverhampton on Monday night, but the fillies’ handicap run over nine furlongs extended is the best race of the night and it features an unexposed three-year-old trained by James Fanshawe under the made of Compliant (82).
She comes from a good family and has improved with every start so far, strong in bets for a rookie event at Redcar in October, but taking a big leap when opening her account for his handicap debut for Newcastle last month. Compliant savored the stage up to a mile and a quarter but was equally well placed in an ordinary gallop race. However, she was by far the best horse in the race, still holding back the closers once she reached the front and snuck to the right, suggesting she had plenty left to give. She’s only 4 pounds heavier now and will likely take a lot of beatings with further progress on the cards.
The greatest danger may turn out to be Cappoquin (85), which topped Timeform’s weight-adjusted rankings. She’s a young girl for a long time, but she has form elements that make her interesting. The most interesting angle with her, however, is that she is starting now for George Boughey’s team who are very adept at improving new signings. They immediately put the cheeks back on and if she returns to the form she finished second in a 2-pound handicap more at Newcastle in September, she will be a great player.
finery (84) has recorded her last four victories on artificial surfaces and is holding her form well, running another respectable run when she was third at Southwell last week, but she had no obvious excuse. Her best run over a mile came when she finished second over a mile and a quarter at Chelmsford in April earlier this year, paying late for the big step she took around three furlongs. This nine-stadium stretch may prove ideal for her now and she is another who cannot be ruled out on her choice of form.
Special hours (82+) also deserves a mention as she is far from exposed after just four starts. She showed ability in her first three starts but was not overly popular in the market on her handicapped debut for Leicester on her last start in June. Her pedigree indicates she is suited for this longer journey and she may have benefited from a break as well. The ‘plus’ attached to its rating suggests that it might be able to do even better and it will be interesting to see how it performs in the market.
Verdict from Timeform analysts:
Compliant will have to improve again in order to challenge a 4-pound increase for her decisive success at Newcastle last month, but this well-bred filly remains unexposed and she could well rise to the challenge with William Buick on board. Cappoquin appears to be a big threat in his debut for the George Boughey yard and is most feared ahead of heavyweights Finery and Special Times, who may be capable of better in his second start at a disabled company.
