5/4

Ran out a decisive winner on seasonal reappearance/handicap debut at Beverley last week (1m2f gd/fm), so carries a 6lb penalty for that success. Takes another hike up in trip but has plenty of stamina in his pedigree.

Found one horse too good in both starts in handicap company, including at Nottingham recently when just held by Gododdin. Up the weights and in trip, but is bred to stay; dam was a half-sister to the Derby/Arc winner Workforce.

Made every yard of the running, holding on gamely to score from stablemate Birdette at Musselburgh on her first try at this trip earlier in the month (good). Up 4lb in a stronger race, but respected.

Has plenty of experience in handicap company, but is yet to win on turf and is still to wholly convince in terms of his stamina reserves over 12f. Easy track will suit, but others appear to be more realistic winners.

Camelot filly; 50,000 gns yearling. Not faced the easiest introduction to life in handicaps against progressive sorts at Newcastle (Casey Jones) and Chester (Austrian School), but stamina is taken on trust on pedigree and has just a little to prove.

Left Mark Johnston for £8,000 in November 2017 after steadily falling down the weights. Yet to race beyond 1m, so this appears to be asking plenty.

Cost just £2,000 as a yearling, and looks light on ability based upon what we've seen thus far, including on handicap debut at Redcar in September 2017 (1m). Down 5lb, upped 4f in trip.

By a Derby winner out of a French middle distance scorer, so should have no issues with this trip. However, races keenly and that's to her considerable detriment as shown when left toiling behind Poetic Steps latest (1m4f).

Showed no ability in four starts as a juvenile (three for previous trainer Mark Johnston), so kick starts her three-year-old season from a basement mark looking for the application of cheek-pieces/step up in trip to provide at least a spark.

Betting

Forecast

Neverbeen To Paris (5/4), Braemar (5/2), Poetic Steps (9/2), Arthenia (15/2), Font Vert (14/1), Queen Adelaide (33/1), Royal Liberty (50/1), Pretty Moi (66/1), Surrender (100/1), American Ruby (100/1)

Verdict

Mark Johnston took this contest in 2017 with La Vie En Rose, and having been responsible for a few of these horses as juveniles will no doubt be expecting a good run from his recent Musselburgh scorer Poetic Steps. However, she doesn't look half as strong as the improving pair Braemar and NEVERBEEN TO PARIS. The selection was a decisive winner at Beverley last week (1m2f), and turned out quickly under a 6lb penalty should be capable of following up.
  1. Neverbeen To Paris
  2. Braemar
  3. Poetic Steps
