IN THE NIGHT started odds-on at Wolverhampton for his debut but ran green and could only manage fourth. Gelded since, he’ll know more today and the Godolphin colt gets the vote to open his account with improvement likely. Bobby The Great and Marcela De Vega failed to threaten on their respective debuts and the 550,000gns purchase Hypothetical may prove a bigger threat representing John Gosden’s powerful yard. He’s preferred to fellow newcomers London Arch and Mystic River.
