There are interesting newcomers to consider with the market obviously likely to provide a valuable guide but the three with form set a decent standard, although there are question marks against all three as they face quick ground now in contrast to the far more testing conditions faced first time up, all at this venue. Critical Risk took his time to find rhythm and stride behind Star Citizen but was going on nicely at the end and stable juveniles are renowned for progressing from first to second runs. It was a similar story with CLASSIC COLLECTION here last month when staying on late to claim the runner-up spot behind stablemate Four Seasons after running green and looking outpaced early on. Seven furlongs should suit well and he's taken to confirm placings with fourth-placed Azraff and get off the mark under Harry Bentley.
