3 pts win MASSAM 12/1 (almost all firms)
Godolphin Autumn Stakes

On the face of it this colt appears more exposed than some of his rivals, taking until his fourth start to lose his maiden tag in a Newcastle nursery. He followed up in facile style in a Yarmouth nursery last time when having little to beat. Nevertheless, he was impressive and he looks to have got his act together. Many from his yard climb high from humble beginnings he is worth a go at double figure odds.

Lost - 3 pts


2 pts win STARS OVER THE SEA  28/1 ( at least seven firms)
1 pt win STANLEY 100/1 ( Betfred, Hills, Bet 365)
Dubai Cesarewitch Stakes

Stars Over The Sea slipped his field in the trial race for this here three weeks ago. To view it as a fluke may not be the right approach to take though as his yard are able to conjure up notable improvement from many of their acquisitions ( that was his fourth run for them) who look to have hit their ceiling, and on the facts, the performance on weights and measures was a career best and his 4 lb penalty still puts him 'well in' when set against his future hike.

Stanley, also by Sea The Stars, doesn't have too much mileage on the clock for a five-year-old. This will be the furthest he has raced but has been stepped up in trip for his last three starts with the form shown level with his best. Not ideally drawn but catches the eye at massive odds.
