Weekly notebook: Horses to follow

HERE we take a look at a few horses to follow. These animals have caught the eye in the past seven days and might be worth keeping a very close eye on next time out…

PLANE SONG (Michael Stoute): On his Windsor debut this chestnut Nayef colt showed typical inexperience for a first-time run until the penny started to drop. Ryan Moore gave him a tender ride and he ran on nicely to be third. He looks to have enough scope to win a maiden and progress from there.

BEAVERBROOK (Mark Johnston): The Middleham master’s two-year-olds are unusually forward for this time of the season. A son of Cape Cross, he missed the start and was as green as grass on his racecourse bow but still showed a lot of promise to be a close fourth. Compensation awaits.

LEAR’S ROCK (Ralph Beckett): There was a lot to like about the way this scopey three-year-old completed a double. He had the stands rail to use but he won with a bit in hand and could still be ahead of the handicapper.

RISK ADJUSTED (Ann Duffield): A smart debut from this speedy looking tool at Redcar. He finished his race off well after being outpaced to come second and looks a surefire future winner.

LUCKY KRISTALE (George Margarson): Was unlucky in running at Newmarket in the Abernant Stakes after travelling well and then getting checked when making her run behind Astaire and Music Master who are rated much higher. The former Lowther Stakes winner clearly retains ability and might just be well handicapped.
