In depth

Verdict

This went to a filly last year but Far Gaze will have her work cut out against four winning colts. Montaigne looked in need of experience at Kempton and only just lasted home though there's plenty more to come. Master Carpenter made a really good impression at Leicester where he won with something in hand despite running green. Anticipated was strongly fancied to make a winning start at Windsor and though badly missing the break he came through in good style and won going away. He's a nice prospect as is JUSTICE DAY, who landed what is normally a strong Newbury maiden in the style of a very useful early-season performer and can go in again.
