Three of Misty Grey’s last four races have been in Group 2 company and he was second in a Listed contest in the other. But he’s been on the go since early May and has only managed one win in seven outings. LAZULI’s debut victory at Newmarket has sent out mixed messages but he has bags of scope and some fancy entries later this month so can remain unbeaten. Lampang and Brad The Brief also made winning starts and are preferred in that order.
Lazuli (IRE) 11-10fav (9-2) Held up, headway over 1f out, edged left and led inside final furlong, ran on, won at Newmarket 6f stks (4) gf in Aug beating Hello Baileys (9-2) by 2 1/2l, 11 ran.
Misty Grey (IRE) 33-1 (9-0) Chased leaders near side of group, weakened inside final 2f, 9th of 12, 11 1/4l behind Threat (9-0) at York 6f Grp 2 stks (1) gf in Aug.
Brad The Brief 8-1 (9-5) Held up and behind, smooth headway 2f out, ridden to lead well inside final furlong, ran on well, won at Bath 5f mdn stks (5) gd in Aug beating Sand Diego (9-5) by 3/4l, 11 ran.
Lampang (IRE) 7-2jfav (9-5) Slowly away, well behind, closer in mid-division over 2f out, good headway and switched right towards far rail over 1f out, strong run to lead final 110 yards, soon clear, won at Carlisle 6f stks (4) gf in Aug beating Panic Room (9-5) by 1l, 13 ran.
