HARBOUR WATCH produced a most impressive performance on his second career start to provide Richard Hannon with back to back successes in this race following Casual Glimpse's win 12 months ago. That colt hasn't won another race since but there should be plenty more to come from this son of Acclamation who still looked green at several stages in the race but really put his head down in the closing stages when readily extending. Ryan Moore was keen to get him some cover early on before challenging between horses approaching the two furlong pole. He went through the gap readily and was joined by Burwaaz alongside at the furlong pole but readily brushed the Norfolk Stakes fourth aside to win in a good time. The rain softened ground may not have been to all of his rivals liking but this was an exciting performance. Burwaaz had 'won' the race on his side at Royal Ascot but had no excuses here and just bumped into a good one. He is below the level of the best juveniles but is a likeable sort who should be able to gain compensation at this level this season. The form of Hadaj's course and distance win received a boost when the second won impressively at Windsor earlier in the week. He was momentarily short of room as the principals quickened and he ran well on ground that may not have been ideal given that a number of Green Desert's progeny prefer a faster surface. He is in the Gimcrack but is clearly some way short of that level at this stage of his career. Citizen's Charter was also one from one coming into the race having cp,e frp, pff the pace to get the better of a stablemate at Newcastle. He travelled well on the pace this time but was readily put in his place when the tempo increased in this stronger contest.
