Well-related colt who showed ability in 3 starts over 7f/1m earlier in the year and appeals as a likely improver now handicapping over a longer trip. Very interesting.

No significant impact in handicaps this spring, including here. Headgear left off now. Has been cut some slack by the assessor but others arrive with more pressing claims.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

ORIENTAL ART is certainly bred to be better than an opening mark of 66 (brother to smart Madame Chiang among others) and there was definite promise in his 3 qualifying runs. He gets the nod, with confidence increased should the market vibes be strong. Jawhary is another potential improver in handicaps, while Uncle Dick and Addosh have both shown they can be very competitive form their mark.

Betting Forecast

9/1 Kelmscott (Ire), 11/2 Jawhary, 7/2 Oriental Art, 5/1 Uncle Dick, 11/2 Addosh, 14/1 Eton Blue (Ire), 9/1 Kornflake (Ire), 25/1 Way Of Life, 25/1 Ambarella (Ire), 66/1 Tarneemat
