Verdict

High Horse started a short-priced favourite on his debut at Bath and though he showed plenty of pace he couldn't get to Big Boots. Well Done Fox also attracted very good support at Newbury but looked very green and faded quickly inside the final furlong. GLORIOUS CHARMER was always in the firing line at Doncaster and though eventually 4l behind No Lippy the winner went in again at Chester last week. That form looks just about the best on offer though the newcomer Amazing Fox, a son of the very speedy two-year-old Alhebayeb, who cost 180,000gns as a yearling, is out of a mare who has produced winners with her first three foals to run and Sunsprite, a £125,000 Kodiak colt, is out of a winner up to 7f so should be speedy.
