7/2

Dual 6f York winner who bounced back from a no show in the Coventry Stakes with a second placed nursery debut at Chelmsford (6f) on Saturday (Nayslayer third); likely to set a target for the others to aim towards (front-runner).

11/4

£26,000 juvenile; won his first two starts at Bath (5.5f) and Windsor (5f) before tackling stronger company in the 5f Windsor Castle Stakes (finished tenth of 28); dam stayed 6f, so no reason as to why this extra yardage should prove troublesome.

6/5

US based pedigree, cost a whopping $400,000 as a yearling; showed improvement on each start, but never more so than when with the tongue-tie fitted latest (retained) as a decisive 3+L winner of a Ripon novice (6f, good).

10/1

£67,000 yearling; ran to a similar level of form on his first two starts before a lesser effort over 7f at Salisbury last month; back in trip for nursery debut, but in truth this looks to be rather competitive on paper.

11/1

Hadn't shown much (although with some excuses) until a much improved effort on handicap debut at Chelmsford (6f) on Saturday, finishing just under 4L third to Buckingham (I Am A Dreamer second); needs to build further upon that today.

Betting

Forecast

Semoum (6/5), James Watt (11/4), I Am A Dreamer (7/2), Pirate (10/1), Nayslayer (11/1)

Verdict

Not strong numerically, but a competitive looking nursery on paper. Both I Am A Dreamer and Nayslayer are turned out quickly after filling the places behind Buckingham at Chelmsford on Saturday and whilst the Johnston trained top-weight should confirm those placings, others are preferred. Semoum takes a step up in grade after a smooth Ripon success (tongue-tied), and might just be forced to play second fiddle to JAMES WATT. The selection has done nothing but please so far and although not quite strong enough for the Windsor Castle Stakes latest, shouldn't be at all inconvenienced by this new trip and looks the horse to be with today.
