Verdict

MUQTARRIB caught the eye on his Newmarket debut and can open his account. Brian Meehan's charge held a number of big-race entries earlier in the year and was the owner's second string when making stealthy late headway into fifth behind Auden. There's any amount of improvement to come and Richard Hills takes over in the saddle. Carlton House made a pleasing debut when second to Pivotman at Salisbury but that rival did little to advertise the form in the Houghton Stakes next time. Estourah was third on his Leicester debut in what looked a decent maiden and should progress but Sergeant Troy and Spirit Of Gondree look handicap projects for next year.
