At The Races Verdict

SOLID STONE looked in need of a step up in trip when getting off the mark over seven furlongs at Newcastle in the autumn and Sir Michael Stoute's Shamardal colt, who cost 360,000gns as a yearling, makes plenty of appeal over this distance on his handicap debut. Marhaban is another who cost plenty as a youngster and switches to the handicap ranks following two useful wins in novice company on the all-weather, while War Tiger has impressed of late and is respected in search of a hat-trick.

Timeform Verdict

Some very promising 3-y-os on show, with SOLID STONE strongly fancied to continue his improvement and come out on top on his handicap debut. He won in good style when last seen, in a race where his stamina wasn't tested at all, and looks a smart handicapper in the making at the very least. War Tiger could be the danger ahead of Marhaban.
