British Stallion Studs EBF Novice Auction Stakes (Plus 10)
Class 4 | 6f 20y | Standard | 9 Runners | Allweather
Off time: 19:16 | Winning time: 1m 13.46s
Broke his maiden last time in impressive fashion at Kempton (6f) as he scored by 7L after going off as the 8/11 favourite. Will need to carry a penalty here as he looks to follow up on his fourth start but he has a great chance of doing that.
Scored at the fourth attempt on his latest outing at Chelmsford (6f) where he ran on well in the final 1f despite being green and hanging to the right at times. Open to further improvement. One to consider.
Got off the mark at the first attempt at Newbury (6f) but she has yet to add to that in three appearance since, including her latest effort at Curragh (6½f) where she was seventh of 26 runners. Set for her first run on the AW. Can't be ignored.
Failed to shine on his debut at Ascot (6f) where he was 13th of 16 runners after going off at 100/1. He was always at the rear end of the field on his first start. Needs to take a huge stride forward here.
Had just one runner behind him on his debut at Chepstow (7f) last month where he was 28L off the winner after going off as a 33/1 shot. Will need to improve on this second start to be in the mix at the finish.
Could only finish eighth of nine on his opening appearance at Lingfield (5f) where he was up with the leaders until weakening at the halfway point. Steps up in trip here and is tasting AW for the first time. One to watch.
Was fancied to get off the mark last time at the third attempt when he linked up at Kempton (7f) but was demoted to second place after being disqualified for hanging left in the closing stages. Worth considering here.
Has improved on each of his three starts in his career. He was second of eight last time at Chester (6f). Open to further improvement here on what will be his AW debut. One to consider in your calculations.
Power filly who was foaled on February 1 and cost €5,000 as a yearling. She is a sister to Sweetasever who won up to 1m, while she is a half-sister to 1m2f winner Dylans Verse. Likely to need this run.
Progressive Rating (11/8), Second Love (11/4), Stroxx (3/1), Sterling Stamp (9/2), Freshwater Cliffs (12/1), Odyssey Girl (14/1), I'm Watching You (80/1), Star Prize (100/1), Knockacurra (100/1), Evaporust (150/1)
