1/1

2-2 over C&D this term, landing a novice auction stakes and a competitive nursery here, before running well in the big sales race at Newbury. Rated 9lb higher than last win and has to give 10lb and more away all round.

Rock of Gibraltar colt made £25,000 at April Breeze Ups. Makes debut here. Plenty of speed in pedigree on dam's side and good jockey booked on debut but may need a run to blow the cobwebs away.

25,000 guineas Exchange Rate colt who hinted at ability when mid-division on debut at Doncaster over 7f, keeping on. Surprise to see him drop back in trip here and may find things happening plenty quick enough for him.

€33,000 Zebedee gelding out dam who won Italian Group 3. Very green here when down the field on debut in May but has been given time and should do better. Yard going well so is worth a market check.

Not beaten far on three of four starts so far but has looked one paced and may do better once turning his attention to handicap company. Wears first-time cheekpieces.

Poet's Voice colt whose dam is from family of St Nicholas Abbey. Cheap purchase though and looked clueless on debut when tailed off at Haydock. Probably needs plenty more time.

Not disgraced on debut last week in Goodwood 7f maiden having led for much of the way. Will know more now and top yard is in blistering form at present so shouldn't be far away.

Intello filly, half-sister to six winners, a number of them quite useful. No superstar but has run creditably last two starts when third at Nottingham and Leicester. Makes AW bow here.

Showcasing filly, half-sister to fair sort Mutasayyid who won at up to a mile. Yard not known for debut juvenile winners so likely best watched for now unless market suggests otherwise.

Plenty of stamina on both sides of the pedigree for this Born To Sea filly who makes her racecourse debut. Likely to need further and yard having a fairly quiet spell at present.

Betting

Forecast

Buckingham (1/1), Arctic Spirit (5/1), Rockshore (6/1), Stellar Comet (6/1), Picture Poet (12/1), Emily's Sea (16/1), Minnelli (20/1), La Roca Del Fuego (33/1), Zeebad (33/1), Whenapoet (50/1)

Verdict

In receipt of 16lb from dual course winner Buckingham, Mark Johnston's STELLAR COMET is taken to build on the promise shown on debut last week in a Goodwood maiden where she led for a long way. Buckingham is a big danger despite the double penalty and clearly loves this place so won't go down without a fight. Rockshore and Picture Poet have shown some ability, as too has Arctic Spirit, while newcomer Zeebad has an appealing pedigree and his yard is having a fine campaign.
  1. Stellar Comet
