3/1

Yet to justify the 48,000 gns purchase price as a foal and has been modest at best in both previous starts (both over 7f at Newmarket in the summer). Possible the extra distance will help but has created the impression a much sterner test is needed.

Ordinary breeding which suggests the Le Havre gelding will need at least this sort of distance to be seen at his best. Yard is back among the winners; worth a betting check in an ordinary race.

11/4

Nicely bred colt with a good number of winners in his bloodlines. The trip should suit and his yard is very capable of having one ready. Already had wind surgery; the betting can be helpful on this occasion.

Bred to get further than this and already needs to step things up a couple of notches judging by the level achieved so far. Widest of the draw not ideal either. At least qualifies for a handicap mark after this run.

Scat Daddy gelding out of a dirt-bred mare, so ought to cope with the surface. Wide draw not ideal for racecourse debut; yard also very quiet at present.

38-8OR:

No signs of progress in his last two starts and makes limited appeal after fading very tamely at Chelmsford at the start of this month. Might already need a longer trip.

38-3OR:
20/1

Cost 64,000 gns as a yearling, the filly has been well beaten in both previous starts and had no excuses for a moderate effort latest. Another that looks destined to be tried over a good deal further before too long.

Yard maintaining a steady flow of success and this half-sister to a number of AW winners is sure to have benefited from her debut run last season. This longer trip is very likely to suit and the filly won't need to find much to get off the mark.

Not finished in front of too many rivals in any of her three previous starts and is hard to recommend on the evidence of her runs up to press. Big improvement required.

38-3OR:
66/1

A Nathaniel filly out of a Shamardal mare, she looks the part on paper but has yet to deliver on the racecourse. Yard highly respected but would only be tempting over a longer trip when combined with strong support in the betting.

Betting

Forecast

Dame Freya Stark (9/4), Osho (11/4), Maqaadeer (3/1), Train To Georgia (9/2), Confils (20/1), West Newton (25/1), Poor Auld Paddy (33/1), Noverre Dancer (33/1), Whims Of Desire (66/1), Hen (66/1)

Verdict

All of these look set for modest handicap company before too long but DAME FREYA STARK makes the most appeal at the present time. Mark Johnston can do little wrong just now and has found a weak opening in which to test this mare's stamina over a mile for the first time. Osho is well bred and is hardly over faced on his racecourse debut and is also worth considering, while Maqaadeer could improve for the switch to an artificial surface and is another top bear in mind is supported in betting market.
