Verdict

WATCHABLE followed an easy maiden success at Ayr with a fine run in a Class 2 handicap at Goodwood from tonight's mark. It will be a pleasant surprise to connections that he hasn't been raised and this looks winnable. Bear Behind was racing off 104 last spring and wasn't beaten far in a Longchamp Group 3 and, after landing a Thirsk seller two runs ago, he was entitled to score from 88 at Haydock and isn't badly treated off 5lb higher. Angus Og gained a surprise victory here last month and, though now on his highest ever mark, his young pilot's claim will be a bonus. After landing a Doncaster maiden, Muthmir started a short-priced favourite for a Newmarket handicap in August but ran moderately and hasn't been seen since. Michael Wigham doesn't waste journeys and the presence of Frankie on board Fairway To Heaven is significant and the dual winner, who ended the last campaign in Group 3 company, will be better for his recent run at Ascot.
