Verdict

The trip must be of concern to Al Muthanaa fans and so we will look elsewhere and side with newcomer NO THANK YOU who is bred to excel over this trip. Kevin Ryan's gelding is out of a dam who won over this trip as a three-year-old and this son of Piccolo might be worth chancing at a track where his yard do well. Al Muthanaa is the horse to beat on form but connections obviously feel he has plenty of boot as they dropped him back to six furlongs last time out (to no avail) having shaped well over seven furlongs on debut. He is bred to get this trip however and his yard dont go away without the prize here too often. Paul Hanagan is an interesting jockey booking for Fear Factor, but along with Green Army he looks opposable on the form shown so far. Any market move for Apache Warrior would raise an eyebrow or two, however the bigger danger is likely to be Three Bay Leaves who is expected to leave her modest Pontefract debut behind her.
