Hectic: confirmed plenty of potential on his solely begin at Newbury

Wednesday: 2.25 York
Tattersalls Acomb Stakes (Group 3) | 7f | 2yo | ITV/RTV

There was no outright profitable favorite of the Acomb Stakes since 2012 and Royal Patronage’s 25-1 success final season when the outsider of 5 was the most recent in a collection of shock outcomes.

The sphere is made up of unexposed juveniles and the extent of their abilities are troublesome to gauge with restricted proof, so steaming into short-priced favourites is ill-advised.

Godolphin’s Native Dynasty can have loads of supporters, however it’s questionable whether or not the Dubawi colt deserves such brief odds primarily based on the type of his debut Newmarket success 12 days in the past.

Native Dynasty impressed that day however his likelihood was certainly enhanced by the late withdrawal of stablemate Metropolis Of Kings. There was nothing between the pair within the betting earlier than Metropolis Of Kings got here out and it’s too quickly to find out the energy of Native Dynasty’s type.

Solely three Acomb winners up to now decade arrived at York off the again of 1 run. 4 of this 12 months’s subject are once-raced, with the opposite 5 having run twice.

Expertise is clearly a bonus and the 5 in query all improved not less than a stone on Racing Submit Rankings from their first to second run, though the flexibility to deal with the Knavesmire could also be simply as essential. The once-raced Shaquille is the one colt with expertise of the monitor.

The Julie Camacho-trained juvenile was despatched off a 20-1 shot when a powerful winner on his debut over this course and distance in July and is clearly open to main enchancment. He may very well be the worth within the race together with the well-entered Oviedo, who regarded a wonderful prospect for Ed Bethell when victorious at Doncaster in July and may step ahead.

The sky blue silks of Highclere Thoroughbred Racing have featured prominently within the final two runnings of the race – and the house owners are hopeful of one other daring present this time spherical with Hectic.

The colt is a son of the 2017 Hungerford Stakes winner Massaat and displayed luggage of potential when making a profitable debut over six furlongs at Newbury in July.

However it’s onerous to weigh up the benefit of that type because the horses who completed instantly behind the Richard Hannon-trained colt haven’t run once more since.

Chairman and managing director of Highclere Thoroughbred Racing Harry Herbert stated: “Hectic labored properly final week and on the again of that we determined to go for this race. We had the winner of this final 12 months and the second the 12 months earlier than, so it has been a fortunate one for us.

“Richard has all the time favored him and it was debut effort. Making a lot of the operating is all the time robust, particularly at a monitor like Newbury.

“We nonetheless have so much to find out about him. He does come from a quick feminine household however the view from his jockey Pat Dobbs and Richard is that he’ll profit from a step up in journey.

“We’ve put him in lots of the large juvenile races later within the season and hopefully we’ll know the place we stand with him after this.”
