4.45 Newmarket – Mildenberger – WON 11/4

A very good 2yo winning 3 of this 5 runs including at Listed level at Salisbury, but it’s his 2 runs in defeat that suggest he’s the one to beat here. 3rd to Expert Eye in the Group 2 Vintage Stakes at Goodwood with 2 subsequent Group winners behind, he improved on that when a close 3rd in the Royal Lodge at Newmarket, where he gave Roaring Lion one of the leading contender for the 2000 Guineas and Nelson who’s fancied for the Derby a rea run for their money. He’s a typically tough Mark Johnston performer and is fancied to land this on his return.
