summary


I was really impressed with the most recent trial of the debutant MONKEY JEWELLERY. This son of Exceed and Excel has drawn awkwardly but has struck a Class 4 race without a great deal of depth and this fellow looks like he can score on debut. Obviously, his pricing is a little more subjective than normal given my view and assessment of his trials and work. CORDYCEPS has the right form to be competitive but a fair trial is somewhat concerning, albeit on the all-weather track. His win last term has him sit amongst the hardest to beat, but I am a touch wary given his work. COMPLACENCY has had the benefit of a run this preparation and the step up to 1200m is a positive. HONEST WAY has a gear change (cheek-pieces on) and his best form from last term would see him competitive. He appears too big a price in the early markets. That said, I’m happy to speculate on this John Size-trained debutant Monkey Jewellery.
