Off the mark at the second attempt (5f, good/firm) having learnt plenty from his debut. Upped in grade for his next two starts he's performed with credit on each occasion especially at Pontefract over 6f (form boosted); first try at 7f.

Showed ability on debut having looked in need of the experience (ran green) and kept on in the closing stages over 6f. Now steps up another furlong with improvement likely although that Windsor form has not as yet been bolstered.

Stable now really starting to hit its stride with juveniles although this one will need to make some fair strides forward from his debut. Struggled over 6f at Ripon (went with little fluency) and work to do here.

Looks as though he needs more time despite having had a couple of runs so far at up to 6f. Did show more on his second start but form (so far) is a long way short of being good enough to win this.

Held up on his AW (Tapeta) debut over 6f this half-brother to three winners looks as though he needs more time and longer trips before he can show anything.

Always hard to ignore anything in this sphere from this yard this one showed more on his second run than on debut but was still far from the finished article. Scope to do far better over this sort of trip though and one to note in the market.

Newcomer who is the first juvenile runner of the year from this stable although they are hardly prolific in this arena. Cost £24,000 as a breeze-up purchase and a half-brother to three winners; probably best watched for now.

Trainer has had a cracking season with his juveniles although this one has failed to progress from his debut. Well supported on his last two starts he was beaten into third by a newcomer last time and now tries 7f for the first time.

Had the accolade of being the yard's first juvenile runner of the season and showed more than the market suggested over 6f at Chepstow. Failed to back her debut up when only beating one home last time; nurseries over further await her in the future.

Betting

Forecast

Victory Command (5/6), Two Blondes (3/1), Dark Havana (7/1), Pesci (8/1), Arden Warrior (10/1), Early Edition (25/1), Silkstone (33/1), Juniors Fantasy (40/1), Klipperty Klopp (66/1)

Verdict

Several of these are trying 7f for the first time and the topography of the track may also provide a test here. VICTORY COMMAND has run well the last twice in a better grade than this and looks as though he’s ready for a step up to this trip. Both Arden Warrior and Pesci have shown promise so far and the latter of that duo looks as though this trip will really suit after he was outpaced over 5f here last time. Two Blondes looks to be trying the patience of his supporters having been a beaten favourite the last twice with the run of Early Edition worth noting. She looks the sort to be suited by this trip and further and is one to note for nurseries when that season starts.
  1. Victory Command
  2. Pesci
  3. Arden Warrior
