Verdict

Summer Times has obvious claims on his form over 6f. Placed in all three starts, he should have no problem lasting home over this extra distance. MUKHAYYAM is a rare two-year-old runner at Newcastle for his yard, though Sir Michael Stoute can boast an excellent strike rate at this venue with his older horses. He will also appreciate the longer trip having failed to get involved in much better company at Newmarket on his debut and gets the nod. Blackfoot Brave and Jolievitesse are other likely improvers and look best of the rest.
