Timeform on Extinct Charm
New York's Finest returned from a 163-day layoff to finish fourth last time and should move forward with that under his belt. A winner of four of his eight starts, Linda Rice's charge should still have more to offer.
Extinct Charm acquitted himself reasonably well in stakes company during the winter and ought to appreciate being back in the optional claiming ranks on his first start since February. On his first start for the Jorge Navarro stable, Oneballnostrikes may provide the most resistance.
Kingslayer proved a disappointment on his first outing for the Kelly Breen barn last time, but is taken to bounce back quickly form that poor effort. He can get the better of old rival Nice Surprise, who may not get the pace set up he needs to be seen to maximum effect.
