5/6
Well-bred colt who found only a stablemate too strong on debut, before having plenty in hand when going one better in minor event at Haydock (1m, good to firm, 4/9) at the start of the month. Useful prospect.

10/3
Cracksman colt who was a place behind Castle Way at Newmarket first time up. Overcame run of the race when landing the odds in a Goodwood maiden (1m, good, 8/13) on his next start. Remains capable of better.

Half-brother to several winners and knew his job when making a successful debut in 8-runner maiden at Nottingham (8.3f, good to firm, 13/2) 47 days ago, responding well. Open to improvement.

Showed the benefit of his initial experience when fifth of 12 in minor event at Kempton (7f, 25/1) 23 days ago, well positioned. May do better again upped in trip, but this looks a difficult task.

Made a winning debut at Brighton (7f) before running well when fourth of 5 in listed race at Newbury only 9 days later. Narrowly resumed winning ways at Beverley (8.4f, good, 8/11) 5 days ago. More needed.

Forecasts

Castle Way (5/6), Ndaawi (10/3), Struth (5/1), Cite D'Or (6/1), Desfondado (50/1)

Verdict

CASTLE WAY looked a useful prospect when opening his account at the second time of asking, still green and scoring with plenty in hand at Haydock 24 day ago. With progress to come, the son of Almanzor can confirm the placings with Ndaawi from when the pair met at Newmarket in August. Struth is also open to improvement following his winning debut.
