29-2OR: 76

Cost £100,000 as a juvenile as a half-brother to the talented Hamza (5f-7f Group 3 winner); remains a maiden after five previous attempts; chance on his better efforts, but fairly sluggish in his races of late, so needs to up his game.

29-2OR:

Brother to the Greek 6½f/GB 1m AW winner Elementary; made a promising debut at Redcar (7f, good) in October when caught close home by Mymidons (beaten 1L), but didn't necessarily progress on his next start at Doncaster; back in trip for AW switch.

Betting

Forecast

Brandy Spirit (11/10), Fares Kodiac (2/1), Regular (7/2), Grandstand (8/1), Legend Island (16/1), Turquoise Friendly (16/1), Opportune Moment (40/1), Isabella Red (100/1), Tunky (100/1), Brains (100/1)

Verdict

BRANDY SPIRIT finished just in front of the more experienced Fares Kodiac on debut in the first AW Championships Fast Track Qualifier at Newcastle (6f) last month, and that was quite some effort for a young horse racing on unfavourable terms. Mick Easterby clearly has some talented juveniles in his care (saddled an 80/1 winner in the shape of Jack Berry House recently), and a simple repeat of that Newcastle run ought to be more than good enough to take this lesser race, without factoring in the improvement that must be considered as highly likely from first start to second.
