3 pts win YAFTA 9/1 (almost all firms - 10's with two)
Ladyswood Stud Hungerford Stakes

A stonewall reliable colt who has progressed throughout the season to be worthy of his place in this sort of field, having won a G3 last time out. He stayed this trip well enough when narrowly failing to give weight plenty of weight away to the winner in a Newmarket handicap three outings back, while as regards the ground, his dam acted well on an easy surface. There is a worry about the combination of the two in relation to his stamina, but at the odds available there has to be at least one question mark. Hard to resist here.

Lost - 3 pts
