49-9OR: C
4/1

70,000gns foal; switched to the AW (1m, Chelmsford) for his second start when justifying short odds in a maiden in commanding style; up in trip and carries a penalty, but looks just the type to keep on progressing.

133-rated hurdler who was beaten less than 5L by Buveur D'Air in the 2017 Grade 1 Fighting Fifth; sole previous Flat start came in October 2017 (Group 3) and almost certain to be headed back over hurdles imminently.

Left previous handler Luca Cumani for 6,000gns in October after a couple of fairly moderate runs in 1m2f AW novice contests; a major surprise if he's the solution.

5/1

80,000gns yearling who is closely related to the exceptional Cracksman (1m-1m4f); started 5/1jf for the Wood Ditton at Newmarket (1m) in April, finishing a weakening sixth of 19 to Sawwaah; absent since and now switched to synthetics.

33/1

Half-brother to a couple of winners (5f-1m2f); very green when struggling on debut (66/1) over C&D in September, but slightly more clued up next time at Pontefract (1m4f); learning about racing, yet requires a significant amount more.

£10,000 yearling; fourth foal out of a 7f winning dam (Daheeya); slowly away on debut at Newcastle (1m) last month but steadily got the message as the race progressed; albeit was still beaten 12L by the winner Character Witness; up in trip.

48-11OR:

Half-sister to the 7f juvenile winner Time Zone; raced keenly on debut at Newcastle (1m) last month when finishing 2¼L third to Ring Dancer; open to further improvement, but has slight stamina question marks.

Betting

Forecast

Flying Tiger (15/8), Matterhorn (4/1), Janabiya (9/2), Military Band (5/1), Be Thankful (6/1), Wise Fox (12/1), Pivello (33/1), Highfaluting (50/1)

Verdict

Janabiya is the most experienced of these runners and has solid enough overall form claims despite being a five-race maiden, whilst the likes of Wise Fox (Charlie Fellowes) and Be Thankful (Roger Charlton) are upped in trip after making respectable starts to their racing careers on Tapeta at Newcastle. However, the preferred option is the penalised MATTERHORN. He should have plenty more improvement in the locker over this longer trip (half-brother to seven winners, including the 1m6f Group 3 scorer Tactic) and rates as just the type to thrive for the Middleham-handler Mark Johnston.
