The Western Meeting of 2018 kicks-off with a 1m juvenile contest, and it's a guessing game as to which of these youngsters will best handle the rain-softened ground. Those with obvious form claims include the Salisbury Listed runner-up Dark Jedi
(Charles Hills), the steadily improving €230,000 yearling Takumi
(Roger Varian), and the exciting looking Kingman colt GEORGE MALLORY
(Kevin Ryan). Although the top-weight is the safest overall option, his price will reflect that fact, so we'll side with the Ryan-trained runner who looked to be a horse in development when highly tried behind the ill-fated Commanding Officer in York's Convivial Maiden Stakes (7f).
