Timeform Daily: Saturday, Solario Stakes, Sandown 14:50

Saturday's Race of the Day comes from Sandown

Timeform offer a runner-by-runner guide to Sandown's Group 3 contest for two-year-olds...

Fantastic Moon did very well to get the better of 4 previous winners on debut, and can provide Jeremy Noseda with a second successive win in this race.

Chilworth Icon is a winner of 3 of his 8 starts, including Woodcote Stakes at Epsom and Group 3 at Milan. Limitations exposed since and vulnerable under a penalty.

Don't Bother Me has shown progressive form in maidens, winning 15-runner event (7f) at Leopardstown last month. That form is working out well and probably has more to offer.

Fantastic Moon cost 210,000 gns and is out of a winning half-sister to useful performer Halla San. Beat 4 previous winners when making a winning debut in minor event at Newmarket last month and holds big-race entries.

Hasopop has been progressing well, winning last 2 starts, most recently a 3-runner minor event at Newmarket in July. Likely to stay and remains open to improvement, but needs to be.

Master Of War made no impact in the Coventry at Royal Ascot but was back on the up when landing heavy-ground Newbury listed event. Good second in Group 2 Richmond Stakes at Goodwood next time and will stay 7f.

Mocenigo is a half-brother to winners in Italy. Just touched off on AW debut at Lingfield before simple task in 3-runner maiden at Southwell. Open to improvement but taking a massive hike in class.

Tha'ir is a straightforward type who stepped up again to take listed 7f Chesham Stakes at Royal Ascot. Good fourth in Group 2 Vintage Stakes at Goodwood next time and likely to be bang there.

Timeform 1-2-3:
1. Fantastic Moon
2. Tha'ir
3. Master Of War

Timeform View: Master of War and Tha'ir look serious players given what they've achieved so far but Fantastic Moon did very well to get the better of 4 previous winners on debut, and can provide Jeremy Noseda with a second successive win in this race.
