    In depth

    Verdict

    It was soft going at Chepstow when COLOMBE found only one too good on her debut. Henry Candy’s filly may prove the one to side with ahead of another recent runner-up in Prospect, who showed ability on fast ground at Pontefract. Sir Benedict is preferred to Hot Diva and Hazmat on a debut fourth at Thirsk while the newcomer Mutasallem cost €240,000 as a half-brother to a 6f winner and should be noted.
