Verdict

Assembly is related to numerous winners and started favourite for a Newmarket maiden on his debut but was never going well enough to make a winning start. This is a poor race but he's best watched for now and though another Newmarket raider Delicious Poison will improve for his run at Windsor he also struggled and is overlooked. Declamation has shown a glimmer of ability and won't get many better chances but EXCELLENT ADDITION is handed the vote. He didn't show much for David Wachman in Ireland but he's now with David O'Meara who has such a good record with similar types.
