Betting

Forecast

The City's Phantom (5/2), Wightman (5/2), Little Bird (9/2), Sweet Sixteen (6/1), Lucander (12/1), Space Ace (14/1), Ocho Grande (16/1), Aldrich Bay (20/1), Rajguru (25/1), Halfacrown (25/1), Souter Johnnie (33/1), Premium Bond (33/1), Stopnsearch (40/1), Abenakian (40/1), Herre Dittery (50/1), Lightning Bug (100/1), Diligent Lass (100/1), Goodman Square (100/1)

Verdict

He was overlooked in the betting but THE CITY'S PHANTOM ran very well in a better race than this one on debut at Newmarket and Richard Spencer's charge could well open his account now with improvement anticipated. Sweet Sixteen was third over C&D on debut and rates a danger while the penalised Doncaster winner Little Bird shouldn't be overlooked too hastily. Lucander is a newcomer form a leading two-year-old stable and is well worth monitoring on debut.
  1. The City's Phantom
  2. Sweet Sixteen
  3. Little Bird
