COLOUR CATCHER has had the misfortune of running into two smart sorts in as many races but there is nothing ungenuine about Charlie Appleby's colt and if he can handle a switch to racing left-handed, his form looks to be just about the strongest on offer. Power Play was sent off as an odds-on favourite at Windsor having caught the eye on debut at Doncaster. You couldn't rule out any Richard Hannon runner at present but that flop somewhat tempers enthusiasm. Midlander is a half-brother to a previous winner on the all-weather and the market should give us a fair idea as to what to anticipate on his first racecourse start. Drumkilbo realised 60,000 guineas as a yearling and it would be no surprise to see Lady Cecil's inmate come into his own once stepped up to longer distances.
