Evaluation has done nothing but progress this season and can land a big one with success in the Cesarewitch at Newmarket on Saturday (3.40pm).
The four year old was only given three goes over staying trips (form of 122) for Sir Michael Stoute at three, before being sold for just 30,000gns last October, which looks very cheap now for a son of Dubawi out of Gold Cup winner Estimate.
He hasn’t looked back since joining Keith Dalgleish, winning his first four starts in May/June, and climbing from a mark of 68 to 90 in the process. A staying-on fourth in the Northumberland Vase, a race in which he may well have gone very close with a different ride, he was then given two months off before finishing a nose second at Sandown Park last time, where he looked the likely winner but was nabbed on the line – and that form has worked out really nicely.
Connections missed out on a £100K bonus that day (for winning three Sunday Series handicaps), but he has a really good chance of more than making up for that at Newmarket. He is 3lbs well-in (the weights were calculated the day before his Sandown run), he clearly goes well fresh and looks set to have ground conditions in his favour. His improvement clearly hasn’t levelled out just yet and his has been his target for some time, so the 12-1 on offer looks well worth taking.
