Champion Hats Maiden Stakes
Class 5 | 6f 16y | Good (Good to Firm in places) | 13 Runners | Turf
Off time: 18:01 | Winning time: 1m 12.56s
Performed well when finishing runner-up in a 6f maiden at Wolverhampton on debut just over a week ago. Likely to have improved for the experience and holds strong claims of going one better.
Well held last of seven in a maiden over this trip at Wolverhampton when making his debut recently. Probably best watched on this occasion.
Slowly away and experienced tack issues when finishing tailed off over 6f at Windsor (good) on debut earlier this month. Interesting to see how he fares in this contest.
Unraced Iffraaj colt and a half-brother to winners Oydis, Opera Baron and Zamadance. Bred to appreciate further in time and is probably best watched on racecourse debut.
Drop in distance looked likely to suit when finishing 15½L last of seven in a 7f novice contest on debut at Newbury (good) earlier this month. Worth a check in the market in this event.
Improved on debut effort when beaten 3L into fourth in a good ground novice race over this trip at Windsor two weeks ago. Interesting runner on this occasion.
Failed to figure when finishing last of eight in a 6f novice race at Haydock (good-to-soft) earlier this month. Hails from a top yard and likely capable of much better than he showed that day.
Slowly away when beaten 17L in a 5f maiden on the AW at Lingfield when making his debut just over three weeks ago. Others hold more obvious claims.
Unraced Acclamation colt bought for £72,000 at the sales as a yearling. Half-brother to the useful Dark Emerald and he is a notable runner for a leading yard on racecourse debut.
Unraced Awtaad colt cost connections £62,000 at the sales last year. Half-brother to a number of winners on the Flat and is of interest on debut for a stable who can boast a 31% strike-rate (4/13) with their juveniles on turf this campaign.
Weakened into sixth having tracked the pace in a 6f novice event at Newbury (good) when making his debut earlier this month. Interesting to see how he fares in this event.
Struggled when beaten 32L in finishing last of six in a 5f novice contest at Wolverhampton on debut last time out. Others make more appeal.
Unraced daughter of Golden Horn and a half-sister to multiple winner Cornwallvile among others. Bred to appreciate further in time and is probably best watched on debut.
