Godolphin run two and both drop down in trip. Creek Horizon showed some promise over 7f at Kempton on his debut while Ottoman Court has returned a losing favourite in all three starts now after placing at Newbury in August and has been subsequently gelded. KING RAGNAR was slowly away over today’s trip at Newbury on his introduction but caught the eye making up late ground to finish second. He gets the vote with that experience under his belt given the remainder look up against it on what little they have shown so far.
