Half-brother to the 7f AW winner Secret Insider; turned over at odds of 2/9f over C&D last month (drew well clear with the winner), but rates as the form horse with his earlier Doncaster third handsomely franked by Royal Marine and Turgenev.

Unraced first foal out of a 1m+ winning dam (Avon Supreme); this race looks plenty competitive enough in which to be starting off.

Kingman filly; second foal out of a 6f juvenile winning dam (Orphea); interesting to see how she figures in the market in comparison to those with more racing experience.

Betting

Forecast

Buffalo River (11/10), Originaire (11/4), Golden Valour (9/2), Ajrar (6/1), Orliko (14/1), Yimkin (20/1), Derry Boy (25/1), Redemptive (66/1), All Points West (66/1), Lady Reset (66/1), Starter (66/1), Supreme Chance (66/1)

Verdict

The penalised Ajrar has boxed outside of his comfort zone (in Listed and Group races) since winning on debut at Lingfield in July and ought to be far more competitive in this much lesser race. However, unfortunately for his connections, he clashes with the John Gosden-trained BUFFALO RIVER. Despite being turned over at very short odds over C&D last month, his earlier third placed effort at Doncaster sets the standard, with that form handsomely franked over the weekend by both the winner Royal Marine (Longchamp) and the runner-up Turgenev (Newmarket).
