Betting

Forecast

Bake (10/3), Military Man (7/2), Arqoob (9/2), Innovator (11/2), Siam Fox (11/1), Touchwood (11/1), Akmaam (12/1), Tell'em Nowt (14/1), Nibras Passion (22/1), Mind That Jet (50/1), Solomons Judgement (125/1)

Verdict

A gelded son of Estidhkaar, ARQOOB shaped with a deal of promise despite showing obvious signs of greenness when fourth on debut at Wolverhampton 25 days ago, noted keeping on as the penny dropped, finishing with running left. A sure-fire improver with that behind him, he earns the vote switched to turf. Another eye-catcher on debut Bake, and newcomers Siam Fox and Innovator are also considered.

  1. ARQOOB (IRE)
  2. BAKE (IRE)
  3. SIAM FOX (IRE)
