CRITICAL PATH ran well on his debut and can break his maiden tag on his second attempt, while both Aqwaas and Phantom Ridge are worth noting. The selection finished fourth of thirteen at Kempton on his debut and is certain to build on that. With conditions in his favour and with further improvement to come he is sure to be in the shake up come the business end of the race. Aqwass caught the eye when finishing fourth of fourteen at Lingfield on his debut. His trainer is in fine form at present so any market support should be noted. Of the newcomers Phantom Ridge looks a likely type on breeding and Richard Hannon has a fine strike rate with his debutants so the market will be the best guide to her chances, however, for the winner we return to Critical Path.
