Andrew Balding: Has a nice prospect in Pearl Spectre
Sir Michael Stoute is set for a relatively quiet week ahead of a big weekend of action at Ascot.
MISSION APPROVED has been given plenty of time since being overturned when odds-on at Pontefract.
The Khalid Abdullah-owned colt had previously landed some good bets in convincing fashion at Lingfield.
Mission Approved, who looked in great form in a flowing breeze this morning, is entered at Sandown and could bid to make amends.
ECONOMY is a well-related colt who could run at Lingfield.
By Dalakhani out of Quiff, he showed promise in his last bit of stronger work and is ready for a race to get some experience under his belt.
PERSEPOLIS has hit the crossbar at Lingfield, Windsor and Goodwood, but on the latter occasion came up against the useful Goodwood Mirage.
There was no disgrace in the defeat and the grey has options at Sandown and Doncaster after pleasing in his spin this morning.
Andrew Balding has a useful prospect in PEARL SPECTRE who looks set for racecourse duty next week following a promising effort on his debut.
The son of US stallion Street Cry finished second to Recanted at Newbury, since when he has delighted Balding.
He is the type that could progress and with his dirt pedigree, summer ground holds no perils for him.
