Wooldridge Group Pat Eddery Stakes (Listed)
Class 1 | 7f | Good to Firm | 6 Runners | Turf
Off time: 16:18 | Winning time: 1m 29.25s
Improved from debut with a fine effort in defeat at Newbury two starts back and he justified favouritism back at that course last time out. More needed to cut it at this level.
Confirmed the promise of his debut effort at Newbury when a winner at Windsor earlier in the month in convincing fashion. Well bred and more to come but he would have to take a sizable step forward to mix it with some of these.
A winner on debut at York and while no match for the winner at Haydock next time out, he ran with credit in defeat. Doubts about whether he wants the step up to this trip though.
Improved from debut when stepped up to this trip at Newmarket last time. Runner-up and fourth have both boosted the form since and while he may well do better over a bit further with time, he's a live player here.
Impressive winner on debut at Carlisle and ran a huge race when stepped up to Listed class over C&D on just his second start at the Royal meeting. Front two pulled clear that day and the winner looks useful so he must have leading claims here.
Has won three of his six starts, not needing to improve for his latest run when a wide margin winner at long odds-on. More experienced than the rest in here but has more on his plate in this class.
