9th October

3:55 York
Decent prize money for this maiden and a half competitive with a number of form horses on show. Walvis Bay has been made favourite for this, although Tate's juvenile may have disappointed a touch last time. Orchid Wing didn't cost much at the sales but is certainly short in the betting, which adds to his chances. Fahey sends a number of talented juveniles to York and it would be no surprise to see this colt by Avonbridge run well. Excellent Vision is one of the main fancies for me. An expensive purchase at 190,000gns as a two-year-old, and relatively unfancied on debut, Smart will be expecting much more today. An outsider with claims is Lucky Windmill. Swinbanks has been flying with his two-year-olds this season and I get the feeling this gelding by Lucky Story is capable of better. It wouldn't surprise me to see this juvenile backed.

Bet: 1PTEW Excellent Vision (available at 5/1) (3rd)
