Shadwell Stud/ EBF Stallions Harry Rosebery Stakes (Listed)
Class 1 | 5f | Good to Soft (Soft in places) | 11 Runners | Turf
Off time: 14:50 | Winning time: 1m 0.2s
Perfect start when winning 6-runner minor event (4/1) at Hamilton (5f, good to soft) on debut 17 days ago, keeping on well. Timefigure was good and he should progress.
Twice-raced maiden. 17/2, seventh of 12 in minor event at Redcar (6f, heavy) 20 days ago. Uphill task.
Winner at Thirsk in August. 14/1, creditable 2½ lengths fourth of 10 to Mighty Gurkha in Sirenia Stakes at Kempton (6f) 13 days ago. Cheekpieces on first time. Enters calculations.
Fairly useful colt. Winner at Doncaster in June. 14/1, 4¾ lengths eighth of 10 to Mighty Gurkha in Sirenia Stakes at Kempton (6f) 13 days ago, badly hampered.
Taking debut when landing 9-runner maiden at Pontefract (5f, good, 10/3) 57 days ago. Value for extra too, so very likely to leave bare form behind.
Showed improved form when winning 5-runner nursery at Newbury (5.2f, good to soft) 33 days ago, readily. This asks for another leap forward.
Fair filly. 2 wins from 6 runs this year. Career best when winning 11-runner nursery (11/1) at Wolverhampton (6.1f) 13 days ago, keeping on gamely. This is a different examination.
Winner at Newcastle on debut in June. 15/2, good second of 6 in minor event at Musselburgh (5f, good) 6 days ago.
Winner at Ripon on her debut in July. Excellent second in listed company at York and looked unsuited by 6f at Ripon last time.
Overcame inexperience to win 12-runner minor event at Beverley (5f, good) on debut 31 days ago, pushed out. Open to progress.
Fairly useful filly. Latest win at Ripon in September. 9 lengths last of 10 to Ubettabelieveit in Flying Childers Stakes at Doncaster (5f, good to firm, 33/1) 7 days ago. Has to be taken seriously.
Bickerstaffe (13/8), Nomadic Empire (5/1), Winter Power (7/1), Regional (8/1), Roman Encounter (17/2), Rebel At Dawn (12/1), Queen Of Rio (12/1), Rolfe Rembrandt (12/1), Pelekai (33/1), Cuban Breeze (33/1), Rory (66/1), First Company (250/1)
It might have only been a 6-runner novice at Hamilton BICKERSTAFFE won on debut 17 days ago, but he created a very favourable impression, recording a fast time in the process, so he's well worth a shot at listed class. Winter Power and Nomadic Empire are solid opponents, while Regional looked good when an easy winner at Pontefract.
