I’ve been waiting for MUTHMIR to make his reappearance ever since Goldream won The Palace House Stakes at Newmarket, earlier this month. Muthmir beat Goldream over this six furlong course by 1.5 lengths. Goldream was then back in fourth when Muthmir won The Portland Handicap at Doncaster, in a course record time, despite being hampered in the run. On what he’s shown so far, he could be challenging for Group Ones in the near future.

Astaire had Lucky Kristale and Jack Dexter behind at Newmarket last month and has to be well respected here, however he will have to reverse form with Naadir who gave him a beating conceding weight at Doncaster in March.

A lot of the form lines in this race all tie in with each other on the early season form, which makes me think there isn’t much between most of these. Therefore if I’m correct about Muthmir being a top class sprinter then I expect him to beat these, and beat them well.

Together Forever was going to be my selection, but then I started looking at the race in further detail. She come into it carrying a penalty for winning a Group One last year, this is her first run of the season and she took a while to get going last year. Her best bit of form, comes from that Group One fillies mile, on that day she had Winters Moon less than a length behind. This is also her first try at ten furlongs, it shouldn’t be an issue for her on breeding and she should improve for the step up in trip.

Now when that’s compared to STAR OF SEVILLE, you want to be on the John Gosden trained filly. She already has a run under her belt this season, where Winters Moon finished seven lengths behind her. That race at Newbury was over ten furlongs, so we know that she gets the trip, whereas we are only taking a well educated guess that her main rival will.

On what we’ve seen so far this season from the O’Brien first time out, as well as the points I’ve mentioned above Together Forever has to be opposed.
