Once raced son of Anjaal was very keen and paid the price when fading into fifth of six on debut at Salisbury 12 days ago over 6f. Drop to 5f will suit better and expecting a step up in form.

Son of Showcasing made a notable step up on an ordinary debut when keeping on really well from the rear to finish third of 10 at Windsor latest over this trip. More to come now and the stiff finish today should suit him well.

130,000gns yearling by source of precocity No Nay Never was made favourite and only found one too good on debut at Ayr last month over 6f when headed late on. Perhaps 5f will be ideal then at this stage and his claims are crystal clear.

Kodiac colt, cost €75,000 as a yearling. Half-brother to three winners including a Listed winner. Dam a Group 3 winning sprinter over this trip as a juvenile. Plenty of speed in his pedigree and he's a fascinating contender.

Newcomer by Paco Boy is the first foal out of a 7f winner and represents highly respected connections so will be one to note in the market.

Starspangledbanner gelding ran well enough considering 20/1 odds when a 4L fourth of nine at Windsor on debut. Won't need to improve greatly to make the frame so each way appeal now.

Remote seventh of eight when beaten 17L on debut at Newmarket in June. Had time since so may fare better but hard to fancy.

Muhaarar colt was a respectable 2¼L third of 10 on debut at Chelmsford over 6f on the AW. Should take a step forward as most from this yard do second time up and has sound claims now.

Outran 50/1 odds when running a respectable race to finish fourth of 10 on C&D debut last month. Can hopefully take a step forward now and if doing so she has place possibilities.

Brazen Beau filly, cost £100,000 as a yearling and is a half-sister to the yard's useful sprinter Amomentofmadness. Midfield on debut at Newbury but yard's two-year-olds almost always improve second time up so can do better now.

Betting

Forecast

Master McGrath (13/8), Vasari (2/1), Phuket Power (7/1), Spurofthemoment (10/1), Sand Diego (14/1), Qinwan (14/1), Liscahann (16/1), Castel Angelo (20/1), Colonel Whitehead (25/1), Surrajah (50/1)

Verdict

There was lots to like about Group 2 Gimcrack stakes entry MASTER MCGRATH's debut at Ayr and with more to come now he can give trainer Kevin Ryan a ninth two-year-old winner of the campaign. Sir Michael Stoute's Vasari ran well on debut and may prove the sternest opposition to the selection although Colonel Whitehead's latest effort is also form good enough to play a part.
  1. Master McGrath
  2. Vasari
  3. Colonel Whitehead
