Once-raced maiden. Third of 7 in minor event at Wolverhampton (7.2f, 7/2) on belated debut in November, finishing well. Open to improvement and appears to be the main threat to Aratus.

Shamardal filly. Half-sister to smart winner up to 6f Leading Spirit and 7f winner Spirit of Light. Lots to like on paper and interesting to see what the market has to say.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

ARATUS did the job well in a 7f Kempton maiden when last seen in November and, with the prospect of better to come from this colt, he looks the way to go. That said, Good Humor made an encouraging belated start to his career towards the end of last year and is open to improvement, while newcomer Next Victory merits close attention in the betting.

Betting Forecast

6/5 Aratus (Ire), 7/4 Good Humor, 9/2 Next Victory (Ire), 66/1 Bonnie Banjo, 66/1 Will He Dance (Ire), 50/1 Blades Equal, 300/1 Bright Dawn (Ire)
