Verdict

The assessor has been unable to give Nahaarr a higher rating as his victories in novice company have been gained narrowly. He's been looking as though this extra furlong would be welcome and Georgia Cox, who has ridden him to both successes, retains the ride. HAWRIDGE STORM showed the benefit of his reappearance with a fine run over a mile at Goodwood last week, taking the lead at this trip but just failing to hold Sophose. He's been raised 3lb but gets the nod over Broughtons Flare, who has been raised a massive 10lb for a comfortable victory on the Rowley Course. Chatham House has yet to win but has gone close on several occasions. He's been gelded since a poor latest run and should be winning soon on the balance of his form. Attainment was narrowly beaten in his two opening runs this campaign before failing to obtain a clear run at Kempton.
