3.00 Newbury – Rhythmic Intent – WON 10/3 (Advised 6/1)

Was progressive last season and has continued in good form this season when encountering ground with some juice in it. So as indicated last time it wasn’t a surprise to see him beaten last time on quick ground. He’s been racing over trips shy of his best this season, yet he still won impressively at York in July. He improved for stepping up in trip last season and his final run when 3rd in perhaps the most competitive 1m4f handicap of the season at Newmarket was his best run. He stayed on strongly that day suggesting he’d be even better over this trip and at the start of the season, we felt he could progress into an Ebor contender. Therefore off a mark of 90, just 5bs higher than that Newmarket run, he’s potentially still a good deal ahead of his mark. Respect for the 3yo Perfect Arch who looked lost on fast ground last time and has the potential to improve, so a saver is advised on him.
