No myracing analysis available for this race
There was more promise from PESTO at Sandown last time and he can get off the mark at the third time of asking.
J: Jamie Spencer
T: James Bethell
Son of Garswood, his dam a seven-furlong two-year-old winner whose sister to four winners. He makes plenty of appeal on paper and Jamie Spencer is a positive booking, though given the yard, the market is your best guide.
Dam a well-related winner; Jamie Spencer booked for debut; market can guide
J: Harry Bentley
T: Ralph Beckett
Son of Frankel whose bred to classy, though he's shown little thus far. He's been well-held in two six-furlong novice races, with connections relying on a step up in distance and the tongue-tie to spark plenty of improvement.
Bred to be smart but has finished down the field in two 6f runs; tongue-tie on today
J: Jim Crowley
T: Saeed bin Suroor
Pulled out due to the surface (good to soft) on Friday, no surprise given his smart dirt pedigree. A son of Distorted Humour, his dam was a sprint winner and he goes for top connections who are flying at present.
Dam a US sprint winner from a good family; non-runner on good to soft on Friday
J: Joe Fanning
T: Mark Johnston
Has posted two similar efforts thus far, showing plenty of ability at both Chelmsford and Haydock. A 350,000gns purchase, he should be capable of plenty more and he wouldn't need to improve much to take this.
Promise in two 7f runs so far and should be in the thick of it once more
J: Andrea Atzeni
T: Simon Crisford
Gelded son of Dubawi who played up in the stalls on his intended debut, withdrawn at 14/1. He's bred to be a useful stayer and today's seven-furlong distance may not be enough, though a market check is advised.
Played up in stalls and withdrawn on intended debut (14-1); bred to have a future though
J: Oisin Murphy
T: Richard Hannon
Showed little on debut at Newbury but improved markedly on that run when fourth at Sandown. The form signals from that race have been mixed, but he's in good hands and further improvement looks certain at this trip.
Improved on debut run when keeping on for 4th at Sandown latest; more to come and feared
J: Adam Kirby
T: Clive Cox
120,000 euros purchase, a son of Invincible Spirit who is closely related to the smart Sux Scholar. His pedigree suggests he's going to be a useful sort and the yard can get them ready. Adam Kirby booked, shouldn't be far away.
120,000euros yearling; related to some very useful sorts and needs a market check
