13/8

Talented juvenile who plundered valuable contests at the Curragh (6½f) and Chantilly (5½f Listed) in the latter half of 2018; top-rated (103) and carries a penalty for his AW/3yo debut.

30-0OR:
100/1

Made an eye-catching debut (33/1) when finishing a keeping on fifth to Kareena Kapoor over C&D (Class 4 novice) last month; a son of Orientor, he's guaranteed to win races in the future, just not in this elevated company today.

5/2

£200,000 yearling who is tough to knock in terms of consistency (3-6 overall; 2-3 on the AW); regularly does things the hard way from the front as was the case when downing the 5/4f James Street at Lingfield in January (Class 3 handicap).

7/1

Two-time turf winner (6f) who was sold for 90,000gns in October; returned from a December jaunt to Qatar with a respectable 2+L fourth to No Nonsense (Deep Intrigue and You Never Can Tell behind) in a similar 6f FTQ at Kempton.

11/1

Won four on the bounce between June and August 2018 (all over 6f and mainly on the AW); has since found the step up in grade into Group 3 company and in a similar 6f FTQ too much and will be taken on for the lead by Deep Intrigue.

£95,000 yearling; winner of a 6f Salisbury maiden for Paul Cole in July 2018 (good to firm) before flopping on debut for this trainer at Doncaster in September; faces a very tough assignment for his AW introduction.

6/1

Ready 5L winner over C&D on AW debut in November (novice median auction) and holds a chance based upon his staying on FTQ third to Deputise at Wolverhampton in December; not so good latest and the cheekpieces are now applied.

Betting

Forecast

Barbill (13/8), Deep Intrigue (5/2), You Never Can Tell (6/1), Don Armado (7/1), Quiet Endeavour (11/1), Walkman (18/1), Call Me Ginger (100/1), Oberyn Martell (N/A), Fares Kodiac (N/A), Garrus (N/A), Key To Power (N/A), Lovin (N/A)

Verdict

A Fast-Track Qualifier for All-Weather Championships Finals Day. Barbill is top-rated of the seven declared runners, but has a 3lb penalty for his Listed win in deep conditions at Chantilly in November. Quite how he'll fare now switched to the AW (debut) off a 99-day break is open to interpretation and whilst he deserves to head the market, he can be taken on in pursuit of value. A fast pace is guaranteed with both Deep Intrigue and Quiet Endeavour known for operating on the sharp end and this might set the race up for a finisher, so we'll take a chance on DON ARMADO who was seen to maximum effect when adopting hold-up tactics at Glorious Goodwood in August.
  1. Don Armado
  2. Barbill
  3. Deep Intrigue
