Race Verdict

JANOUB NIBRAS ran a very nice race when third on his debut what looked a hot Ascot maiden over 5f earlier in the month and normal improvement should make him tough to beat this afternoon. The move up from the minimum distance is also very much in his favour based on pedigree. Windhoek and Winged Icarus both went for six-figure sums at the sales and merit close consideration on debut, while Gold Hunter and Well Acquainted have already shown enough to be of serious interest at this sort of level.

Selection: Janoub Nibras        Danger: Windhoek        Alternative: Winged Icarus
