Verdict

Captain Midnight has had too many chances and may have to wait for a nursery to get off the mark. SOUVILLE is by Dalakhani so it was a surprise when she showed such good speed on her debut at Haydock where she would have finished even closer with a clear run. That experience won't have been lost on her and she can make her allowance count. Tancred wasn't fancied at York in May but caught the eye with an encouraging effort and looks certain to do better. New Bidder, who finished just in front of him, already had a run under his belt and may not confirm the form. Richard Fahey unleashes the 80,000gns yearling Abbey Village, a half-brother to six winners including the stable's high-class juvenile Wootton Bassett.
