Paddy's Day

Days: 22

Only seen once for connections so far, Paddy’s Day made his debut at Windsor over 6 furlongs last month.

Despite ducking right after coming out of the stalls, he handily took up the running and quickened clear from the front smartly to score. Showing some signs of greenness, edging off a straight line late on.

The form hasn’t worked out well since and he’ll need to have come on to be involved here.

OR: N/A
Days: 31

Sent over the minimum trip for his first outing, Persian Force showed plenty of pace to score over 5 furlongs with ease at Doncaster back in March.

The form has been well franked from that outing since, producing a couple of subsequent winners. Persian Force then easily won a 6 furlongs conditions race against 2 other rivals easily.

He looks a smart prospect and is well worth a go at this higher grade.

Andrew Balding’s juvenile won on debut over 5 furlongs narrowly on his debut at Newbury, the form not particularly working out well since.

Moved up in trip and class for a small runner conditions race at Newbury, he was beaten by the impressive Persian Force.

He needs to step up majorly on that performance to have a say here.

Scoring on debut on the all weather over 5 furlongs narrowly to Confederation, Waiting All Night found himself upped in grade off the back of that and send for a listed race at Sandown.

The trip looked far too sharp for him against better competition and he was outpaced throughout.

Moving up in trip will have to bring about plenty of improvement for him to have a hand in this race.

Days: 18

After looking green on debut over 5 furlongs at Leicester, Rousing Encore came on nicely for the run and got off the mark on his second outing at Beverley over the minimum trip.

Looking far more professional, he won with bundles in hand on his second outing. Easily handling moving up in trip to 6 furlongs, he beat odds on favourite Breege to win a conditions stakes smartly.

He has plenty of stamina and pace and probably has more improvement to come.

Days: 14

Adrian Nicholls has given this son of Starspangledbanner 4 outings already this season. Debuting on soft ground at Thirsk over 5 furlongs he found Fix You far too good to live with and settled for 2nd.

Kept at the minimum trip for his next two outings, he was shaping well enough to place but was finding the trip slightly too sharp to land a blow.

Moved up to 6 furlongs last time out, he finally got off the mark to beat a big field. The form hasn’t really been tested since and it doesn’t look the best of contests. He’ll have to improve bundles to have a say here.

The first string for Aidan O’Brien, Blackbeard has been highly impressive in his three career outings.

Debuting over 5 furlongs at Dundalk, he scored nicely. Kept at 5 furlongs for his next outing, he moved up to listed level and just got the better of Crispy Cat to justify favouritism.

Moved up in trip and grade last time out, Blackbeard looked lethal over 6 furlongs. Bounding clear four rivals easily to score at group 3 level emphatically. The one to beat on paper.

After being narrowly defeated on debut by Shartash over 6 furlongs on soft ground at Naas, Age Of Kings built nicely on the experience to win last time out and break his maiden in style.

Making every yard of the running he he easily strode clear of the field to record an impressive 4 length victory.

The form hasn’t been tested yet but he did it smartly enough. Frankie Dettori takes over in the saddle.

An American entrant for George Arnold, Late September has had to career outings on dirt tracks over in America.

Debuting back in April over 4.5 furlongs, he looked very one paced over the short trip and only managed to come home 4th of 8 runners. Shaping like he’d need further.

Kept at 4.5 furlongs for his most recent outing, he was ridden handier and took up proceedings earlier to score narrowly. He looks like a longer trip will suit but has plenty of question marks coming over here for the first time.

Paul and Oliver Cole’s son of Gleneagles made his debut over 5 furlongs at Ascot back in May and shaped like going over a longer trip would suit him.

Moved up in trip for a novice race at Goodwood, he handled some cut in the ground well to score easily. Travelling powerfully before quickening clear in some style.

The 4th has come out and won since and he looks like he has some more improvement to come.

Only seen once so far, Scholarship made his debut over 6 furlongs at Haydock at the end of last month.

Handling some cut in the turf easily and dealing with being short of room during the race, he powered clear smartly to score. He showed some greenness edging left late on but will improve for that outing.

It’s hard to assess just how good he might be.

After winning a novice race on debut over 5 furlongs at Salisbury by a neck, Remarkable Force narrowly justified favouritism by showing some strong staying power.

Last seen kept at 5 furlongs, Remarkable Force scored in a conditions race up at Musselburgh. Again edging right slightly in the closing stages, he still stayed on powerfully.

Moving up in trip should suit and he looks a smart enough prospect.

Nigel Tinkler’s charge has yet to win a race and lines up here still a maiden.

Well beaten on his first outing, he only beat two rivals home to finish 8th in a poor looking contest. Sent off at 100/1 for his most recent outing, he ran a much better race to be 2nd but still looked quite green.

He’ll have to come on a lot for that to be involved in a deep looking group 2 contest.

An Irish raider, Harry time comes here off the back of his debut run. Having his first outing at Navan over 5.5 furlongs, he wasn’t asked too many questions to skip clear of his rivals.

Maybe not the most impressive performance but he looked like he has plenty of improvement to come and wasn’t asked a real serious question to seal his win.

Beaten by Royal Scatsman on debut over 6 furlongs, Show Respect was sent off at a massive 40/1. Meeting some trouble in running, he ran well to come home in 4th.

Building upon that experience to win his next outing smartly at Leicester, he was carried right late on but showed some smart ability to pull clear in the last 110 yards to win comfortably.

Another who has plenty of scope for improvement but needs to find it rapidly to have a say here.

Archie Watson brings his once raced son of Tasleet here off the back of a very striking debut. Making his debut over 6 furlongs at York in a novice stakes, he travelled like a good horse before easily quickening clear of the field.

Well backed as favourite before the off, Bradshell drew away quickly and will come on for that outing. The 4th has come out and won since and he could any amount of improvement left in him.

Adrian McGuinness brings Ti Sento over from Ireland for an outing here. Making his debut over 5 furlongs at Navan he made no impression and looked outpaced throughout.

Sent off at 100/1 for his most recent outing he defied the long odds easily to score with bundles in hand to win over 6.5 furlongs. He looks to have plenty of stamina and hit the line hard over 6.5 furlongs.

However that was only 9 days ago and he’s backing up quickly here.
