Cosmic Law rewards followers with easy Woodcote victory at Epsom

James Tate: Implicit shaped well on debut for trainer
1 of 1

Column update

Cosmic Law, who was a winner for the column last time out, followed up with a decisive success in the Woodcote at Epsom, rewarding anyone who followed him after Carlisle.

Mutawaffer fulfilled his debut promise with a win at Goodwood, and Fanaar did the same with a Leicester victory.

Showu was in action at York, but was fifth and hampered, while Tizwotitiz looks like a nursery type after his Lingfield run.

Week one
Deep Intrigue – won at Beverley when 4-7 favourite on third start
Disruptor – not run since
Sesame – unplaced at Bath and Windsor
Tizwotitiz – second at Nottingham, fourth at Lingfield

Cosmic Law: coming home clear at Epsom

Week two
Arcadian Rocks – fourth at Chester, unplaced at Doncaster
Cosmic Law – won at Carlisle when 2-1 favourite, won at Epsom at 10-1
Fanaar – won at Leicester when 11-10 favourite on second start
Wolf Hunter – third at Ripon

Week three
Lorton – not run since
Mutawaffer – won at Goodwood when 5-4 favourite on second start
Showu – fifth at York 
Prince Of Rome – not run since

Week four

3rd, Windsor, May 21

Keen to post, this filly was similarly exuberant once the stalls opened, showing blistering speed to lead.

To her credit those early efforts only told inside the final furlong when she was picked off but, if learning to settle better when next seen, she might have enough dash to burn off her rivals.

Don Armado
7th, Windsor, May 28

In the last five seasons Stuart Williams has only had one juvenile winner on turf, but this colt showed enough to think he could double that tally later in the year.

Having showed up well, Don Armado was a little green when making his challenge and then weakened in the final furlong. That run should have bought him along and he can improve on this.

Pass The Gin
4th, Chelmsford, May 31

Pass The Gin did a lot wrong on her debut but still managed to grab fourth. Slowly away, she was last turning in but was still travelling well.

Oisin Murphy then got no luck when trying to pick his way through the field with a gap shutting in his face, so it's worth marking up this performance. Pass The Gin should be capable of better.

6th, Nottingham, May 30

When the stalls opened, this filly didn't have much of a clue what was going on but she recovered well after a slow start.

The rail helped when trying to challenge and she showed distinct promise when staying on behind the leaders, who had already flown. If more streetwise on her next couple of starts, she should have more to offer.

Iain Jardine: sent out a 40-1 winner at Doncaster last weekend
Trainer to note

Last weekend Iain Jardine sent out a 40-1 winner at Doncaster, when Must See The Doc left his debut a long way behind.

This is not an isolated incident, as Captain James ran far better than his 80-1 odds when finishing on the heels of the first three home in fourth at Catterick.

It might be worth noting Jardine's two-year-olds when they have their second outings.

Sire to note

Kuroshio was a good sprinter as a juvenile in Australia, and the signs are he has passed on those characteristics to his progeny.

He has had three British winners from nine runners so far from his first crop and his runners are worth a look.
