- EBF Maiden Stakes (Class 5)
- 5f 215y, Good to Firm (Good in places)
- 5 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Left his debut form behind when dropped back to 5f at Windsor having made his debut over 6f at the same track despite looking better suited by further. Had Fantom Force (making debut) back in fourth last time; should be involved.
Behind Eton College on his debut at Windsor over 5f he now steps up a furlong a move that is likely to benefit both of them. Should come on for that run; has a chance of reversing the form (stable won this last year).
Newcomer (stable are 1-5 with debutantes this year); first foal out of a Listed-placed dam over 7f (half-sister to Listed winners Pretend (5f AW) and Fiulin (1m6f). Rather mixed pedigree but worth noting a positive market move.
Failed to progress as expected from his debut over 5f at Salisbury (did well to cope with that speed test) when next seen over 6f at York. This would represent an ease in grade though and he has to be taken seriously for this.
Stable already has 21 juvenile winners on the board this year so no surprise this daughter of Kyllachy was sent off favourite on her AW (6f) debut. Showed plenty of speed/ability on her debut (finished fourth); sure to improve.
