Verdict

The one who appeals most is NEXT CHALLENGE. Having made his debut at Kempton in October over 7f he looks like a horse who will relish today's step up in trip having only got going late on that first racecourse appearance. He has also been gelded since and goes for Saeed Bin Suroor, who has been in good form recently. Also having a good start to the season is Bin Suroor's Godolphin colleague Charlie Appleby, and his charge Janzsoon has the pedigree to make a bold bid on debut, while Ply was another eye-catching Kempton debutant who could improve to get competitive here.
  1. Next Challenge
