13,000gns foal; made some progress from first start to second but his remote 25-1 fourth to Hector Loza at Chelmsford (6f) shouldn't be good enough form.

First foal from a moderate dam; slowly away when tenth of 13 on debut at Lingfield (6f, good to firm) in July; this trainer has been known to send some promising horses north to Newcastle; worth a market check.

Betting

Forecast

River Cam (7/4), Huraiz (13/2), Spantik (13/2), Abbotside (7/1), Kayewhykelly (8/1), Rushcutters Bay (12/1), Asstech (14/1), Jamaal Danehill (14/1), Najm (25/1), Staxton Hill (25/1), Clotherholme (25/1), Kayat (33/1), Top Attraction (100/1)

Verdict

A juvenile contest which is potentially more about the future than the present with any number surely capable of winning races. Of the newcomers the likes of Huraiz (Mark Johnston) and Spantik (Archie Watson) should be tracked in the betting. However, the suspicion is that experience will come to the fore with the fillies' River Cam and Kayewhykelly obvious candidates, although it's possible that Rushcutters Bay and ASSTECH may offer a shade more value. The selection was never able to land a blow behind the smart Treble Treble at Haydock three weeks ago, but if breaking in a more timely fashion on his AW debut looks capable of an improved effort.
