JEHU looks a progressive sort and he is taken to get the better of Jutland and Bahamian Music. The selection came up against a useful sort on his debut at Newbury and he then showed improved form at Goodwood last time when he chased home Xtension. He is clearly going the right way and with this extra furlong a big plus for him he sets the standard for the others. Mark Johnston does well with his juveniles first time out at this track so Jutland is certainly interesting on his racecourse debut. In contrast, Richard Fahey's strike-rate with his first time out juveniles here suggests that Bahamian Music may be best watched today. Ant Music has shaped with promise on both of his starts to date and he has the best of the draw. He will not have to find a great deal of improvement to make the frame. The market may well provide the clues here but for the winner we will stick with Jehu.
