AL NEFUD is out of a half-sister to Group 1 winner White Moonstone, so there is plenty to like about him on pedigree. He made a most promising start to his career in a good-looking race at Lingfield last month.
He was slowly into stride and left the impression he would come on a fair bit for the experience, making good headway when coming under a ride around 2 furlongs out and staying on well to finish second without being unduly punished. That form is working out with the third winning next time and Al Nefud could be open to above-average improvement.
FOREST FALCON’s wide-margin success in a minor event at Yarmouth on his final start last season was hard to assess, but he confirmed himself a colt to be positive about when shaping with plenty of encouragement on his return at Musselburgh on Saturday.
He was beaten only by a stablemate who had a similar profile and had the run of the race, Forest Falcon looming up and travelling better than most, but unable to get past the winner who controlled proceedings from the front. It is interesting connections turn Forest Falcon out quickly from the same mark and he will likely prove hard to beat if in anywhere near the same form.
CATHAYENSIS has looked in need of the experience in her three runs to date, but is bred to do better at some point. She is more interesting than most now making her handicap debut.
She ran creditably after four months off when not beaten far at Wolverhampton last time, seen making late headway without being knocked about. An opening mark of 56 doesn’t look excessive given she hasn’t showed her all yet, while the return to 7 furlongs will also suit.
