Verdict

Goodwood third Tidy Affair looks good enough to win an ordinary maiden, but comes up against a handful of potentially smart two-year-olds. The $300,000 American-bred Pulverize has an early Derby entry as does Unex Michelangelo. Cape Samba is a brother to the useful Wagtail and a half-brother to six other winners, while Charley's Mount is entered in the upcoming sales races and I'm Harry makes his debut here rather than in the Washington Singer at this track on Saturday. However, TOP OFFER has entries in all of the leading end-of-season juvenile races and Roger Charlton's colt gets the nod, especially if attracting support in the betting.
