6th: South Beach, F&M-4+, 7.5f-T/0′ (P3, DD, Hi-5)

A number of notable surface switches/lawn returns going here including Everyonelovesjimmy (Jimmy Creed), Piedi Bianchi (Overanalyze) & Road to Victory (Quality Road). As discussed with Ian Wilkes this week, ‘Jimmy’ likely wanted grass all along, but was given every chance on the main as a 3yo. At 12-1, stands every chance to set pace or draft along inside if exterior pace players insist on the point..

Shamrock Rose, Dream Pauline & Blamed will take the money leaving us with overlays elsewhere. Ms Meshak is ‘good now’ and another step forward makes her competitive with these. Figures to stalk Blamed or sit behind duel if one develops between that one and Dream Pauline. Wet going a plus..

This feels chaotic with mares coming from all over. English Affair (8-1) started to get good last summer and peaked when earning G3 black type in Cardinal win. Sire English Channel gets improvement in his progeny as they reach maturity and they LOVE cut in the ground. Castellano gets the call. Sign me up..
