Verdict

Enthusing sets the standard in this maiden after two silver medal performances but with his price likely to be prohibitive a better bet might be Godolphin's progressive MARSTON MOOR while Rain Mac should be respected from top connections. The pick was held just over five lengths on his debut run, which he looked in need of, by a subsequent Group Two winner. He duly improved on that next time and the same level of progression again should be enough. Enthusing has found just the one too good by less than a length on both of his first couple of starts and this further step up in trip gives him a chance of going one better. Rain Mac is bred well enough to suggest a decent first run while Sir Mark Prescott's Memory Lane needs to be considered as although he'll be better over further in time he has enough speed in his bloodlines to win over this trip. Plenty of unknowns in this line-up but Martson Moor looks progressive and can go in this time.
