28/08/21 Windsor 12/13 Flat 6f 12y Gd/Frm 9st 5lbs Ray Dawson 7.8

Cheap purchase from the Breeze-Ups but showed a bit when third in a Chelmsford maiden on debut and far from disgraced in Group 3 C&D, though bare form may flatter him. One to beat still.

Foaled February 4. Decorated Knight colt. Dam, 2-y-o 6f winner, half-sister to high-class winner up to 2½m Order of St George. Yard 5-30 with 2-y-o newcomers this season. Likely type.

Foaled March 22. £100,000 2-y-o, Wootton Bassett half-brother to smart winner up to 1m Salateen. Dam, 9.3f-13f winner, also won over hurdles. Yard 7-45 with 2-y-o newcomers this season. One to note.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

ATHEBY might be flattered by the bare form when fifth of 6 in the Solario Stakes over C&D last month but still rates the one to beat back in a novice. Well-connected newcomers Damaar and Wodeton are likely threats, while Holiday should do better having been set a stiff task on debut.

Betting Forecast

13/2 Holiday, 200/1 Torious, 10/1 Dayman (Ger), 5/2 Atheby, 200/1 Youthful King, 10/3 Damaar, 10/3 Wodeton (Fr)
