Matt Brocklebank reckons Encipher is a great bet on his second racecourse appearance in the opening event at Newbury on Friday.


Sporting Life Daily Nap, July 19

Barring the introduction of a very serious newcomer, Encipher should be able to get off the mark at the time attempt in Newbury's Spinal Injuries Association EBF Novice Stakes.

Trainer John Gosden was just 1-12 with his juvenile runners heading into the start of July but has sent out two winning youngsters already this month and he can strike again with the son of Siyouni.

He's a beautifully-bred colt, being a half-brother to smart French filly Ebony, and looks to possess loads of the family talent based on his initial display at Haydock.

He was supported in the betting first time out but had to play second-fiddle to fellow Godolphin representative Path Of Thunder, who already had the benefit of experience following a third to Threat at Newmarket and close second to Maxi Boy at Yarmouth.

That form reads pretty well in the context of a this novice event and the way that Encipher ran on well inside the final furlong to get within a length of the winner left the impression he would not be a maiden much longer.

He's got another Godolphin horse to deal with here - Charlie Appleby's debutant Native Tribe - who has to be respected under James Doyle, but Oisin Murphy is in the plate for Gosden and that combination have teamed up for six wins from 16 starts (38% strike-rate) in two-year-old races which is clearly pretty encouraging.
