Wells Farhh Go

Wells Farhh Go only finished sixth in the King Edward VII Stakes, but there was a lot to like about the performance that he put up. Held up out the back of the field, he was keen through the early stages of the race, and he wasn’t advantaged by the fact that Frankie Dettori was allowed set a relatively sedate pace up front on Raa Atoll.

Stone last of the nine runners as they straightened up for home, he had no chance of catching the leaders at that point, of making up around eight lengths into a quickening pace. Even so, he stayed on nicely down the outside for David Allan to get to within five lengths of the winner Old Persian at the line.

This was just Tim Easterby’s horse’s fourth run. Winner of his two races last year as a juvenile, including the Group 3 Acomb Stakes, he wasn’t suited either by the sedate pace in the Dante on his debut this term. He obviously stays this 1m 4f trip well, he could do even better over further, and he will almost certainly do better when he gets a faster pace. Also, both his juvenile wins were on easy ground, so he could do even better when he gets back on easy ground. He is a horse who remains of interest.
