Roger Varian’s filly ran a solid race on her racecourse debut but completely lost the plot on her second start at Goodwood when getting very upset in the preliminaries. We can put a line through that run and she still seemed a little unsure of what was required when a running-on third at Salisbury last time. She was getting the message late on though and a rating of 73 looks to be a workable mark for Prism with the yard in very good form.
A big runner handicap with 22 declared so we need something at an each way price and a good slice of luck in the run, to be in there pitching at the finish. Home City looks very straightforward despite the fact that he was disqualified at Newbury, two starts back. That was down to jockey error for not changing his whip hand that day but Home City made no mistake at Chelmsford last time. The extra half furlong looks as if it will suit him and he should hit the line strongly.
It looks as if this unbeaten daughter of Frankel has scared the opposition away. Admittedly they’re all open still to a good bit of improvement but Inspiral looks head and shoulders above these. A smooth victory will see her harden towards the top of the market for the Classics next term.

Mick Channon’s runner is not always easy to predict but I’m hoping that a change of hands with jump jockey Conor O’Farrell getting on board can kick start his career. Koeman has dropped an awful long way in the handicap and has to start getting competitive soon. It’s a race that is normally run at a strong gallop and that will suit him down to the ground. Hopefully, he can get a slice of the action at a huge each-way price.
Ralph Beckett’s filly brings in a very good profile having won three of her for lifetime starts. She has handled softer conditions very well, but there is a definite danger of us pigeonholing her early on as just a soft ground performer. She may well improve for the quicker surface and there is no doubt that Yesyes stays this 1m 6f trip well. We get the added bonus of Ryan Moore taking over in the saddle.
We only saw him three times as a juvenile and he ran well on each occasion finishing second at Listed level at Epsom. He obviously has taken a long time to come to hand this season as it was only 40 days ago that we saw Modern News reappear on the July course at Newmarket. He has grown considerably and moved beautifully on the quick conditions to put up a good performance and beat a match-fit rival in Final Watch. A 6lb hike shouldn’t slow him down too much.
