Conditions Should Suit Improver
With the ground an unseasonal (?) heavy, it is imperative in winner-searching to look for a horse that has some qualification for being able to act on it and BIRDCAGE WALK looks to fulfil that criterion today in the MansionBet Fillies' Handicap. She has raced three times, leading or being prominent and running well on each occasion and looks like she will appreciate the extra quarter mile she gets today. She also wears the hood again, an addition that clearly helped in her last two runner-up spots. Significantly, however, is the success of the progeny of her sire Sea The Moon on ground like today's which stands at three from 18, not really unexpected as the horse himself sluiced home on his two attempts on it before winning the German Derby. His sons and daughters are also 62% better than expected at Nottingham, so all looks in place for a good run from Birdcage with pilot Marquand possibly making all. TRONADA, trained by Alan King looked full of promise on her reappearance at Goodwood and it's at this longer trip where she's bred to excel; the worry is that she also like to lead.
