Still a maiden after 11 starts. Has talent, however, and should win a race in due course, but he looks to be flying much too high at this level.

Exceed and Excel colt who is a full-brother to Group 3 winner Rouleau and half-brother to Middle Park Stakes winner Amadeus Wolf. Landed a 7f maiden on debut over C&D and is clearly a colt of potential.

Mixed it with top opposition as a juvenile, but disappointed in two starts in the spring. This is his first run since being gelded and it will be interesting to see how he fares.

Got up near the finish to win on debut at Yarmouth before finishing a close second at Doncaster. Both those contests during his juvenile season were over 6f and he looks sure to appreciate this extra furlong as a three-year-old.

Had Great Prospector behind when fourth in a 1m Listed contest at Newcastle in March and followed that up with a narrow win in a four-runner C&D conditions race. More to do this time.

Betting

Forecast

Purser (6/4), Aurum (2/1), Mutaaqeb (5/1), Great Prospector (11/2), Ambient (66/1)

Verdict

Aurum looked a promising colt when scoring over C&D on debut and is likely to go off at short odds, but he has a little to prove at this level and is opposable. The same applies to Purser, who seemed to have his limitations exposed at Newcastle even though he finished ahead of Great Prospector. With Ambient out of his depth at this level, that leaves MUTAAQEB, who shaped with a good deal of promise as a two-year-old and seems sure to relish this step up to 7f. He may represent the value in a trappy contest.
