In depth

Verdict

This is a potentially informative maiden as several look capable of going on to better things. Art Of War ran green on debut at Ascot in September but kept on nicely once the penny dropped. She's Gorgeous was third on her debut at Yarmouth in October when trained by Lady Cecil and Courageous Rock ran well in a couple of starts and looks likely to make a better three-year-old. FAST DELIVERY finished ahead of the latter at Doncaster in September, however, despite missing the break. Well bred, he started favourite that day so must have been showing something at home and there is likely to be plenty more to come this season - the Godolphin colt has a Derby entry. Sacred Act and Slemy are newcomers to monitor.
