3/1
Cheap purchase who showed plenty of speed on debut before failing to handle the bend at Kempton. Sets a reasonable standard and the fitness/experience advantage makes him the one to beat.

Cost just 3,500 gns as a yearling but is a half-brother to four winners including Beaufort Twelve (7f to 1m1f) and Rasheeda (6f-7f). Showed little on debut and needs to have improved significantly.

Slowly away and green on debut when sent off at 20/1. Will have learnt from the experience and worth a market check.

From the first crop of Alhebayeb out of a speedy dam. Yard don't have many winning debutants and a watching brief is advised.

Pedigree dictates he will be better over further and that view was reinforced when lacking the pace to challenge on debut.

Plenty of speed in his pedigree and that was evident on his Salisbury debut. Sure to improve for the experience and better ground so has to be shortlisted.

€7,5000 purchase from the first crop Bungle Inthejungle out of a winning sprinter. Yard have a modest strike rate with this age group and are 0-9 with them so far in 2018.

Bungle Inthejungle filly who was a €20,000 purchase as a yearling. Plenty of sprint/two-year-old winning form in her pedigree and her yard won this two year's ago. Unfancied and well beaten on debut so obviously has work to do.

Runner-up on Windsor debut for a yard whose horses improve with experience. The third and fourth have been beaten since in modest company.

£24,000 daughter of Bated Breath and half-sister to a couple of winners on the continent. From a yard who are 4-12 with juveniles here and who are 3-5 with this age group on turf in 2018.

7/2
£20,000 daughter of Kodiac out of a dam who was a maiden but related to some speedy types in America. Yard's horses improve for a run but she would arouse interest if coming in for support in a race as weak as this.

Plenty of speed on the dam's side of the bloodline. Much to like about her debut but she looked more limited next time.

Betting

Forecast

John Betjeman (3/1), Pink Iceburg (7/2), Mayfair Madame (5/1), Whataguy (11/2), Molly Blake (6/1), Swan Street (12/1), Country Rose (20/1), Tomahawk Ridge (20/1), Kg Passion (25/1), Wye Bother (33/1), Merarani (33/1), Very Stable Genius (50/1), Rocky Park (66/1)

Verdict

Whataguy provided his trainer with a first juvenile runner and showed plenty of dash before conditions took their toll. He looks set to go close but preference is for JOHN BETJEMAN who showed speed on debut in what was a stronger race than this before failing to handle the bend at Kempton. Mayfair Madame was placed in a race which has not worked out very well and a bigger threat may come from Swan Street who looked green on debut but showed some ability.
  1. John Betjeman
  2. Whataguy
  3. Swan Street
