TWE Eye-Catchers Of The Week

Good Morals

Mark Johnston’s Good Morals is bred to stay well and she has shaped like a step up in distance will see her improve in both of her starts to date at Newcastle.

Her debut form now looks rock solid with the winner finishing second in the Zetland and her finishing effort on Friday evening smacked of a horse sure to pick up races.

She was tapped for toe when they quickened up around 2f out, but she soon got motoring, with her closing sectionals the clear standout in what doesn't look a bad race.

With her needing one more run to get a mark, it is worth keeping a close eye on what connections do, but she is definitely one to keep onside when tackling a longer trip.


Picked up after an eye-catching effort in the Brocklesby, Mascapone is still lightly-raced for an early season two year-old, and he outlined on Saturday that there is plenty of room in his current rating.

The son of Masaat had previously finished third in the Listed Pat Eddery Stakes but this was a hot little Nursery which explains his SP price tag of 33/1.

He made a mockery of those odds however, travelling smoothly under a patient ride, before finishing strongly for a never-nearer fourth.

Jamie Spencer was waiting for room around 2f out therefore his finishing position can be marked up further.

Haunted Dream

Haunted Dream produced a career best to finish third in the bet365 Old Rowley Cup Handicap on Friday which shows this fast improving grey isn't finished just yet.

Ed Dunlop has excelled with these types this term and this son of Oasis Dream did what most of the others couldn't by producing a fast finishing effort from off the pace at Newmarket.

The race was dominated by the front-end, with 16/1 & 25/1 chances getting an easy time of things, and the rest unable to make up much ground from further back in the field.

The fact that this gelding has overcome such bias suggests he may be up to landing a decent prize before the season closes.
