Andrew Balding: Kameko is in great shape for Friday
The Betway ambassador previews his six runners on Friday, including Kameko in the Joel Stakes at Newmarket.
Roscioli is in good form at home and should benefit from his first run, where he was third at Sandown.
You don’t know what you’re up against, but I’d be hopeful he’d run well.
Bounce The Blues is stepping up in trip on her second start for us.
She ran very well behind our Foxtrot Lady at Doncaster last time and I don’t think the extra furlong will be a hindrance to her. Any ease in the ground will help, too.
Mahanakhon Power is having his first run in a handicap and goes under Callum Hutchinson.
He looks as though he could be fairly treated, and I hope he copes with conditions. If he does, he could have a squeak in an open-looking race.
Kameko runs in the Joel Stakes and we’re really happy with him going into the race.
Make no mistake about it, it’s a red-hot Group 2 which looks like a Group 1 on paper. He also has a 5lb penalty to carry, so life won’t be easy.
If he’s to beat Benbatl, he’s got to run a career best. But he was a course-and-distance winner in the 2000 Guineas and, as long as the ground doesn’t deteriorate, he’s got a great chance.
Berkshire Savvy is also stepping up in trip, but he was staying on well in testing conditions at Salisbury last time which gives us the hope he’ll cope well.
He’s got a sound chance if he puts his best foot forward.
Wild Hero is getting what I’d say are his optimum conditions: 9f on a straight track.
He’s got some good form in the book and ran well last time out. On that, I think he’d have every chance.
