Form & Verdict

Raced only on going softer than good; disappointing on second start but has otherwise shown steady improvement and opened his account at Nottingham (1m2f; handicap debut) most recently; although not crying out for the drop back to 1m, has possibilities with the ground in his favour.

Possibly best held up; blew out on second start but the others were progressive; won a nursery at Nottingham (1m2f, soft) and fourth of six in French Listed race (1m1f, heavy) later in October; gelded since; all runs have been on softer than good; yard has made a cracking start to April.

Form & Verdict

Raced only at 7f on soft/good to soft; well held in a stronger Listed event two starts ago; that defeat is flanked by wins at Catterick, impressive (won by 11l) in nursery latest; that performance gives him a leading chance back up in class and he's likely to stay the new trip.

Ice Max

J: Clifford Lee

T: K R Burke

Gelded prior to comfortable success at Bath (1m, heavy; off 8lb lower) on seasonal debut, adding to his 2yo wins at Catterick; the only runner who has the benefit of recent match practice and has to be feared despite going right-handed for the first time.

Ice Max

9st 5lb

J: Clifford Lee

T: K R Burke

Won over 7f on good to soft at Catterick in a maiden and a nursery; the concern is that he was well below form on more testing ground at Doncaster in a Listed race (soft) and nursery (heavy); gelded soon after final start; dam 7f/1m winner; player judged on best efforts.

T: Ralph Beckett

95,000euros yearling with an Irish Derby entry; won narrowly on heavy ground at Nottingham (1m) and better again in defeat at Chelmsford when conceding a penalty; the front two have run well since without suggesting the form is anything special; again has the penalty but he's open to improvement.

Grays Inn

9st 2lb

J: David Probert

T: Jack Channon

Oaks entry; has seen clearly the most action among these, having eight races as 2yo and in the frame in all of them except final outing; won twice and some fairly useful form, including when fourth of ten in Curragh Group 3 (1m, soft) in October, but needs something of a higher order; likely to stay.

Verdict

Although bottom of this pack on bare figures, promising PONIROS is open to any amount of progress and has a likely tactical edge assuming he again leads. He could well boss this small field and follow up his Nottingham debut win. Gray’s Inn, who has a fighting chance in receipt of 5lb from the colts, is second choice ahead of Ice Max who commands respect on the back of his wide-margin nursery success.[Steve Boow]
