Thursday's Eyecatchers

Clive Cox likes to use Salisbury as a starting point for his juveniles and SHALIMAH ought to be an imminent winner for the stable after his promising debut at the Wiltshire circuit.

A 25/1 chance, the son of Dark Angel looked to be struggling to go the pace during the early exchanges but finished off the seven furlongs quite nicely and eventually snatched fourth.

Given Shalimah ought to improve for the experience, this reasonably-bred colt looks good enough to go a few places better in a similar standard of maiden event looking towards the autumn.

DARK AMBER finished last in the fillies handicap over a mile and a half but she that is not a true reflection of her ability.

Watch the replay again right here and see how she became trapped on the inside rail after being switched for a run by Graham Lee.

She remains a maiden after eight career outings now but this run can be completely ignored as she was still travelling sweetly when hampered and she's better judged on her previous narrow defeat at Windsor.

Pointers From The Gallops

ESTIMATE is on course for the Lonsdale Stakes at York next week and worked satisfactorily for Sir Michael Stoute ahead of that contest on the Limekilns short gallop.

The filly was unsuited by the undulations in the Goodwood Cup, but should find the long home straight on the Knavesmire much more her cup of tea.

She came up behind lead horse GOOD VALUE and was accompanied by one of the stable's St Leger hopes SNOW SKY.

Working seven furlongs, Estimate and Snow Sky assumed control between the six and the seven and the pair finished upsides.

There is a race awaiting Snow Sky next week in the form of the Great Voltigeur Stakes, and he looks at the top of his game for that trial.

TELESCOPE came up the same strip of ground in company with RUSSIAN REALM.

The pair raised the tempo between the six and the seven with Juddmonte International Stakes-bound Telescope pulling easily four clear.

Connections are hoping the fast conditions at York remain that way until the first day highlight on Wednesday, in which Telescope reverts to a mile and a quarter.

MUNAASER was an extraordinarily easy winner at Newmarket but in his work with BRAGGING was unable to match that improving filly who went three clear.

KINGS FETE is another Leger entry and looked happy working solo. The hood he sported at Goodwood seems to have helped chill him out.

ANGEL VISION continues to do everything right and on this occasion skipped clear of RUSSIAN HEROINE.
