Verdict

Perhaps the most intriguing race on the opening day of the two-day Lockinge fixture at Newbury, with no shortage of leading stables/owners represented by some extraordinarily expensive purchases. The likes of Cassini, Astrologist, Gendarme and Coolongolook have all demonstrated a respectable level of previous form whilst the lightly raced types such as Cacophonous, Surya and Mazboon are open to considerable further improvement. However, there was plenty to like about AL MUFFRIH on debut at Newmarket in October (1m), and with that form working out well, this 260,000 gns son of Sea The Stars rates as the selection.
  1. Al Muffrih
  2. Cacophonous
  3. Cassini
