Verdict

Visible Charm is unlikely to emerge as a leading Godolphin juvenile light but his form reveals him more than good enough to land an ordinary maiden. This may well be the day but DARK SILVER represents a yard in outstanding form at present and made great strides from debut when running on stoutly to claim third spot behind the highly-rated Man Of The Night at Newbury last time. He may just offer a touch of value against the likely market leader. Coast Ofalfujairah looks best of the rest to have run but a market check on the newcomers - Ventura Bounty, Pettinger and Tamar - is advisable and they are preferred in that order on paper.
