COLBYOR has plenty going for him here and the gelding can complete a good week for Richard Fahey. He ran really well last time, despite not getting the run of the race, in a competitive 7f Musselburgh handicap behind Joshua The First, the form of which is working out well. A fair juvenile last term, his performance also suggested a return to 6f would suit and this looks a far more straightforward assignment. Multi Bene shaped well on debut at Wolverhampton last term and should improve considerably but he's yet to operate at the level of the selection. Strong market support for the Fanshawe newcomer, If So, a half-sister to the high-class Deacon Blues from the same yard, would obviously be interesting, whilst Khaleejiya has also shown enough to warrant consideration.
