The first race of the day is the seven furlong maiden and the horse that takes the eye for ability and experience is the Dermot Weld trained Barud.
The son of Kodiac was an expensive purchase as a foal and yearling and on his two starts to date has shown enough ability to warrant backing him today.
He made his seasonal debut this term at the Curragh over 6f and finished a decent third, beating The Acropolis who has since gone on to frank the form.
Barud then stepped up to 7f in another maiden over course and distance and was a fair fourth behind the Chesham winner Point Lonsdale.
The second in that race has since franked the form and having much more experience than this field could be the difference.
