IN SUMMARY: The confident selection is JUST IN TIME who showed an eye-catching turn of foot when bursting clear at Kempton on his latest start. An eight pound rise isn’t going to stop this unexposed type from going in again for connections who can’t stop winning at present. The danger, however, is Fibonacci who won at Haydock on his latest start and his pedigree is taking enough to suggest that he can do better in time for powerful connections.
1 AARDWOLF – Won at Doncaster in May, but has been well beaten on all his runs since, finishing well held at Newcastle in September. His stamina for this distance is still a question mark and, despite being three pounds under his last winning mark, he couldn’t be put forward.
2 FIBONACCI – Well bred son of Galileo who has only run five times, breaking his maiden at Haydock when last seen readily. More is needed on his handicap debut, but that couldn’t be discounted for an in-form yard and he’s respected.
3 SPORTING TIMES – Sole win remains in a maiden, but he wasn’t far away when second at Kempton on his latest start, keeping on strongly far too late. He’s now only a pound higher and a reproduction of that performance back on turf gives him solid claims.
4 RESHOUN – Ex-French horse for Ian Williams who has made two British starts, dropped five pounds for his latest in Class 2 company. He’s now dropped in class and is interesting, but he’s not shown enough to be of interest for win purposes here.
5 LIGHTLY SQUEEZE – Won at Doncaster three starts ago, but he’s been well held the last twice, refusing to settle when fourth at Sandown last time. A step up in distance means that he has to settle and, with that not guaranteed, he’s best watched off this mark.
6 JUST IN TIME – Form figures of 211 since returning this season, breezing into the lead at Kempton last month in taking fashion. He’s now eight pounds higher, but he remains lightly raced and unexposed so should be very tough to beat.
7 AMERICAN HISTORY – Won at the 1m 2f distance at Brighton two starts ago, yet he weakened out of things at this distance when last seen. He’s a pound lower here and, although he does stay this far, 1m 2f would be far more ideal and others are more convincing.
