Camagueyana, Windsor, July 21, sixth
It could be we don’t see the best of this filly until next season, as she is a half-sister to the useful Cubanita, and her pedigree suggests middle-distances will be her strength. However, she finished her race off nicely on debut, and granted a stiffer stamina test, may find a maiden opportunity.
Gild Master, Lingfield, July 28, third
Pitched in against rivals with previous experience on debut, this Alan King-trained colt acquitted himself well. Not given an unduly hard time in the home straight, Gild Master is bred for much further and showed enough ability to think a maiden or nursery can be found.
Deluxe, Goodwood, July 29, fifth
This was a nice debut effort from the Richard Hannon-trained colt, who shaped pleasingly under Pat Dobbs. He kept learning through the race, and with Dobbs only pushing him out to the line in the final furlong, closed down his rivals well. He can show the benefits of his debut at Sandown on Wednesday.
Total Demolition, July 30, Leicester, ninth
Although this colt’s form to date is nothing to write home about, he did show some ability on his latest start. Held up, Total Demolition was still travelling quite nicely into the latter stages of the race, although not in a position to get to the leaders. However, he could have been closer but for being short of room towards the finish. Now qualified for nurseries with a mark of 52, he may be a different proposition when handicapping.
Fast Romance, Goodwood, July 31, 5th
Being drawn wide was no help for this filly as Jim Crowley had to make use of her early to get to the front, and when battling away in the final furlong she was squeezed up against the rail. This possibly cost her a place or two, but it was still an improvement on her previous two efforts. An opening mark of 71 for nurseries could have been slightly kinder, but if reproducing her last run, she can find a race.
Nobbly Bobbly, Doncaster, August 2, 4th
The first juvenile of the season sent out by trainer James Bethell, Nobbly Bobbly was well supported and ran a promising race. Travelling down the centre, the colt moved into contention nicely, but was unable to find a kick and never landed a blow. He is bred to handle further, and should be better for the experience on his next few starts.
