9/2

Confirmed debut promise when bolting up at Beverley (7.5f) last month. That wasn't much of a race but he did it in the manner of a very useful prospect and can make presence felt up in grade.

Beverly maiden and Ripon nursery winner in recent months. Creditable third in 1m Ayr nursery latest and the winner, to whom he conceded weight, has finished placed in a Group 3 since.

Starspangledbanner colt who won in good style on his 1m Salisbury debut (soft) at the beginning of the month. Looks sure to improve.

12/1

Chester novice winner who shaped well when fifth of 17 in strong Newmarket nursery (7f, good) 23 days ago. Yard won this twice since 2015. Another to consider, although her stamina is an unknown.

22/1, showed plenty of ability midst greenness when third of 13 on 7f Salisbury debut (soft) 18 days ago. Open to progress but she is rather pitched in at deep end here.

10/1

Belied market weakness to make a winning debut at Bath (1m) last month and seemingly stretched by 1¼m when well-held fifth (Mystery Angel third) in Newmarket Group 3 since.

Forecast

The Rosstafarian (6/4), Mystery Angel (4/1), Naamoos (9/2), Pythagoras (5/1), Roseabad (10/1), Iconic Queen (12/1), Percy's Pride (28/1)

Verdict

It's rare for a horse to win a novice by 17 lengths so NAAMOOS could easily be up to taking the step up in class in his stride, particularly as he promises to relish 1m. Pythagoras is going the right way and heads the dangers along with Salisbury debut scorer The Rosstafarian.

  1. NAAMOOS (FR)
  2. PYTHAGORAS (IRE)
  3. THE ROSSTAFARIAN (IRE)
