Monday Eyecatchers

It may not be wise to pay too much attention to Monday's racing at Doncaster after a downpour changed the going from good to soft to heavy in the space of a couple of hours.

However, the performance of Fallen In Line, who finished second behind the more experienced Speculative Bid in the mile maiden, suggested there is much more to come.

True, being a son of Pivotal meant that he was always going to appreciate the underfoot conditions more than his rivals but this was a big step up on his previous run, where he had only beaten one home in the Wood Ditton at Newmarket.

He comes from a family that John Gosden has done well with so it would be disappointing if his trained couldn't find a race or two for him as the season continues.

The best performance on the Town Moor card came from Muhaarar who broke his maiden at the first time of asking under Paul Hanagan.

The attritional conditions would have been a concern for any horse, let alone a juvenile having his first run, but the son of Oasis Dream coped admirably with the heavy ground and won in the manner of a two-year-old who can go on to bigger and better things before the season is out.
