Twice-raced maiden. 16/1, eleventh of 12 in maiden at Newbury (6f, good to soft) 24 days ago. Better effort on debut, but still more needed.

Verdict

Double Kodiac opened his account at the first attempt at Maisons-Laffitte, but subsequent efforts have left a lot to be desired, while Whelans Way created a favourable impression on debut at Bath but was brushed aside in no uncertain terms at Newbury last time. CRACKIN DREAM seems to be heading in the right direction, following up a Windsor fifth on debut with a much better effort over C&D and Clive Cox's colt is taken to continue that upward trend.

Verdict

CELTIC MANOR is an expensive newcomer who makes plenty of appeal on paper, and he may be able to take advantage of the weight he receives from previous-winner Double Kodiac, whose best effort came when winning in France on debut. Stallone has quite a bit to find, but he really caught the eye on debut, and needs monitoring in the market.
