Having shaped with plenty of promise on his racecourse debut at Newcastle at the start of the month, Taysh looks a good bet to get off the mark in the Download The winner.co.uk App/BSS EBF Median Auction Maiden Stakes at Lingfield.
The American-bred juvenile carries the colours of the increasingly powerful Al Shaqab Racing operation and is in good hands with John Gosden.
The youngster pulled William Buick’s arms out three weeks ago at Gosforth Park and having moved into the race travelling ominously well two furlongs down, he predictably paid for his early exertions as his finishing effort petered out.
That said, Taysh still passed the post a clear second and winner, Capel Path, could be quite a smart sort.
Frankie Dettori takes over in the saddle as he switches to the all-weather and if Dettori can harness the colt’s obvious talent, he should get the job done a the second time of asking.
Marcus Tregoning has his string in good shape and can find the target with Cataria Girl in the first division of the recommendbookies UK’s Top Betting Site Handicap.
The five-year-old daughter of Discreet Cat has already enjoyed a fine campaign, winning here, at Kempton and on the turf at Bath in the middle of summer.
Considering she has been on the go since January, she has upheld her form admirably, finishing placed on her last two appearances.
Talented apprentice Jordan Vaughan gets a good tune out of Cataria Girl and she looks sure to be there or thereabouts once again.
Secret Glance rates the best bet at Wolverhampton in the opening British Stallion Studs EBF Maiden Stakes.
Ed McMahon’s youngster was a big price and a huge eyecatcher on his racecourse debut at Pontefract a month ago, running very green in the early stages before flashing home to finish fourth, beaten less than two lengths.
The subsequent success of the third home, Clergyman, gives the form some substance and with normal improvement Secret Glance should take a bit of beating at Dunstall Park.
