Verdict

TALWAR had disappointed connections when seventh at Doncaster on debut in a race which has produced a winner but took a significant step forwards. He jumped well and always looked to be travelling strongly for Ryan Moore before quickening well to record a convincing success and he looks up to the standard of some smart recent winners of this race which include Zacinto. He has clearly inherited plenty of stamina from the distaff side of his pedigree, holds a Group One entry and it will be interesting to see how far he can progress. This was an encouraging start to Gunner Will's career as he kept on takingly in the centre of the track away from the field. Doing best of those held-up, he kept on steadily and should be all the better for this introduction. Sehnsucht had shown ability in a fair Newmarket maiden but didn't substantially build on that; he was hard at work to make up the ground but did keep on for pressure to edge out Nant Saeson for third. There had been a whisper earlier in the week for Nant Saeson who jumped and travelled well for Richard Hughes but he was noticeably green when asked to quicken and started to hang - his jockey wasn't overly hard on him and he can leave this form behind in due course. Ex Oriente attracted support ahead of his Newmarket debut but failed to sustain his challenge and was ultimately well beaten. He raced too keenly in behind the leaders and his run flattened out a little close home but this was a step in the right direction and he can do better again once learning to settle. Tigers Tale was a springer in the market but was too keen early on and never threatened to play a part - he's fairly stoutly bred and may not come into his own until next season but is clearly held in some regard by a yard that has enjoyed some success with their juveniles this term. He was wearing a cross noseband for this debut so may not be the most tractable and could only stay on at the one pace under predominantly hands and heels. The last four home all looked in need of their initial experience and cut little ice in the face of this stiff introduction but it would be no surprise to see them leave this form behind in average maidens with runners from the Gary Moore and Brian Meehan yard's traditionally in need of their first outings and Royal Academician did make some progress from the rear having missed the break.
