Godolphin delivered their first juvenile winner of the campaign on Friday and wasted little time in following up 24 hours later at Lingfield. ARTIGIANO can keep the bandwagon rolling along although this is potentially a hot maiden. The US-bred colt stayed on takingly on his York debut when not especially strongly supported, beaten only a length at the line by Funk Soul Brother. He must surely improve for the run and gets the vote with that vital experience under his belt. Stable companion Shooting Jacket demands a market check as riding arrangements rarely tell the whole story at Godolphin. The Channon juveniles are rolling along impressively and Symboline is certain to come on for a pleasing Ascot debut earlier this month. Forbidden Fruit, Pearl Noir and Walter White are also potential improvers while newcomers Quiet Prayer, Intimidate and Haverstock add further spice.
