ALHAQUE should be a short price to see off Sana Abel and Slick Mover. William Haggas will do well to find such a weak maiden as this in the programme book. Having left Peter Chapple-Hyam, he ran a solid race over 1m4f at Kempton and the percentage call is that he will stay the extra two furlongs. Sana Abel appears moderate. Having shaped with earlier promise, she appears to have regressed badly over the season. Slick Mover attempts to graduate out of bumpers. Double Exposure is a half-brother to Corrib Eclipse so the trip really should not be an issue. Miss Jodarah has been big odds on her last three starts and will need substantial improvement in order to take a hand here. Alhaque is the call in a race that hardly sets the pulse racing.
