can be kept sound.

AS­COT SEPTEM­BER 30( 6f three-year-old hand­i­cap (Class 2)

Com­pet­i­tive event run on sticky ground MAZZINI (James Fan­shawe) was des­per­ately un­lucky when de­nied a clear run at Yar­mouth on his pre­vi­ous out­ing and looked in out­stand­ing con­di­tion here. How­ever, he was un­com­fort­able on ground that rode softer than ad­ver­tised and came home a one-paced third. Cir­cum­stances have con­spired against this strap­ping in­di­vid­ual re­cently – he could have run up a se­quence granted quick ground and a slice of luck – but the raw po­ten­tial is there and he will be hugely in­ter­est­ing if re­turned to the AW.

7f three-year-old hand­i­cap (Class 3) Mud­dling race

ALBERNATHY (Char­lie Ap­pleby) was pro­duced in won­der­ful shape af­ter a three month break and out­ran his price (14-1) to fin­ish sec­ond. While this might prove a messy race – the field split – he looks right back to his best and will surely be placed to ad­van­tage if kept go­ing on the AW this au­tumn/win­ter.

KEMPTON OC­TO­BER 5 7f two-year-old maiden (Class 5) Use­ful form

RADJASH (Char­lie Ap­pleby) is a lengthy, loose-limbed colt out of the un­beaten Fil­lies’ Mile win­ner White Moon­stone. He was heav­ily backed through the day and trav­elled like a win­ner through­out, only to lose out close home be­hind the more ex­pe­ri­enced In­ti­mate Art. Radjash was def­i­nitely the best horse in this field – he would have won un­der a more ag­gres­sive ride – and has a bright fu­ture.

ME­TE­ORIC RISER (Richard Hughes) didn’t look wound up for this de­but but was noted run­ning on strongly to fin­ish fifth. There was plenty of prom­ise in this ef­fort and, with im­prove­ment guar­an­teed, this colt is worth watch­ing.

ESPRIT DE CORPS (Roger Charl­ton) has plenty of scope and at­tracted sup­port at fancy odds. He was never placed to chal­lenge, but kept on pleas­ingly un­der a quiet ride to fin­ish sixth. Horses
