The Sportsman's Verdict
NEW QUAY routed the opposition on his handicap debut at Ascot over 2m3f on Saturday and connections wisely take their chance just five days later as he will carry 10lb more in future handicaps. The drop in trip should pose no problems and he can prove too strong for the likes of Capitaine, who proved disappointing at the end of last season but could benefit from a first-time tongue-tie, and Majestic Touch, who ran well when sixth behind Storm Rising at Cheltenham last month.
