Big eye-catcher on debut when coming from rear with fast closing sectional. Did not turn up in the Chesham possibly unsuited by extra furlong and 7f. Can be forgiven the poor performance.
American Star is odds-on favourite for the 635 Salisbury given his form is 62; Withering’s is a much bigger price by virtue of his best run coming first - his form reads 26 but he’s potentially the better horse.
He was a huge eye-catcher on debut, blowing the start but then slicing through the field with a devastating closing sectional. This all achieved without his jockey getting particularly animated.
Upped in grade to Listed class at Ascot he possibly couldn’t handle the soft ground and extra furlong and under totally different conditions he could recapture the excitement of his debut run.
