4.20 Newmarket, Thursday, September 28

Arch Villain makes his belated debut in Listed company in the Jockey Club Rose Bowl Stakes (4.20) at Newmarket on Thursday but, having made a highly promising seasonal debut in the Betfred Ebor Handicap at York last month, Amanda Perrett’s 8-year-old looks well worth his place in the field. Lightly raced in recent seasons, the Arch gelding returned from a lengthy layoff to win three times in 2016, including the Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup over 2 miles at Ascot last August. In so doing, he gave 10lb and a neck beating to subsequent Cesarewitch third, Sea Of Heaven, so the form looks reliable enough. He probably doesn’t want the ground too soft, but stepping back up to 2 miles should do his chances no harm. Nor should the fact that’s he’s reunited with Jim Crowley, who’s ridden him to seven of his ten career victories.

Selection: Newmarket 4.20 Arch Villain to win  12/1
