Verdict

Kilbarchan got off the mark at the first time of asking at Chelmsford, justifying favouritism at the chief expense of a subsequent winner and showing a pleasing attitude to do so. Nina Petrovna is edging ever closer to the winner's enclosure and should be in the thick of things, but COOLAGH MAGIC made a debut full of promise in a York race won by last week's July Stakes fourth, and Richard Fahey's youngster is fancied to build on that.

Verdict

KILBARCHAN looked above average when beating a subsequent winner (clear of rest) on debut at Chelmsford last month and is taken to defy a penalty. Nina Petrovna is getting better with each run and has to be respected, with the other penalised winner Wee Jim also worth considering.
