EPSOM DAY(best price 7/4) has shaped like he might be the type do better in handicaps and following three statutory runs in maidens to obtain a mark of 64, he gets a chance to put that theory to the test in this modest-looking nursery. Slow beginnings have rather put John Gosden’s charge behind the eight ball on his last two starts at Lingfield, but the way he’s finished off his races without being subjected to too much punishment suggests he may be an entirely different proposition once he tackles middle distances. Being by Teofilo, his breeding certainly points towards him coming into his own over further and hailing from a stable that are in decent nick at present, he rates one of the more likely types in what looks a very winnable race for a horse of his profile.

Now the Warren Greatrex bandwagon is in top gear, his horses should be followed religiously and in the shape of VINCIAETTIS, the Lambourn handler looks to have another likely type in a category he has a rich tradition. A winner of his only start in a bumper at Limerick for Charlie Swan, the son of Enrique was picked up for £72,000 by new connections and given that he’s reportedly done really well over the summer months since settling in to his new surroundings, hopefully he can make a bright start to his career for his extremely capable stable.
