Verdict

A competitive race for decent money and APOLLO D'NEGRO makes appeal from the lower reaches of the weights. His best effort of the campaign came in a high quality Newmarket sprint with a respectable sixth place behind Majestic Myles, since when he has filled the minor placing in a decent Goodwood sprint. He's down 1lb for that effort and looks on a workable mark. Da Ponte enjoyed the softer conditions when scoring at Goodwood for his in-form yard over this trip but he has also won on quick ground and could well be on the upgrade. Close To The Edge and Barkston Ash have done their respective connections proud this term and should continue to do so but the handicapper is making life increasingly difficult for the pair of them.
