A Maiden Stakes over 5f on good to firm going. Just the six runners: four colts, two fillies, two with race experience. On the face of it Mr Morse didn't achieve a great deal on debut when outpaced and last in the Scottish Brocklesby. However, it is interesting that Ellison sent this horse to Musselburgh and racing at stakes class suggests this colt by Hellvelyn - cost £34,000 at the yearling sales - is capable of better today and likely to improve significantly on that first run. The stable's two year olds often go well on their second start. It's priced 18/1 at present and has win and place claims.
Mr Morse 18/1 3rd
