Verdict

SUPERNOVA built on two promising efforts last season when winning a maiden on his return at Goodwood last month, when shaping as though further would suit, and the extra furlong here on his handicap debut can bring about further improvement. Coolongolook was disappointing when prominent in the market for a maiden at Newbury behind Al Muffrih but is capable of better in handicap company, while Past Master could potentially kick on having won at Goodwood last time.

Verdict

SUPERNOVA continued his theme of race-by-race progress when making it third time lucky at Goodwood on his return and his opening handicap mark looks a feasible one. Past Master has got back on the up this term and is feared, whilst Coolongolook remains the type to do better now handicapping as his stamina is drawn out.
