On The Nose: Perseus Way a stellar choice for Godolphin at Newmarket

A welcome return to HQ on Wednesday, October 20 sees a Charlie Appleby mudlark with the potential to have punters starry-eyed after recent downpours. He who dares wins, each-way hounds look away now.

The colt named after the constellation can star at Newmarket. Charlie Appleby's charge has already won on heavy going, which is a big plus with Newmarket sodden after recent rain.

4.25 Newmarket - Perseus Way

Plenty more in this talented field would have come into the reckoning if this novice race took place yesterday when the going was good to firm.

Yet, storms over Newmarket have reduced the going to soft and that plays into the hands of heavy ground winner Perseus Way of the mighty Godolphin operation.

A winner over the mile on debut at Nottingham in seriously wet conditions, the two-year-old by the superlative Sea The Stars is carrying surplus weight but the ability handle to soggy ground will be a leveller.

The expensive Nathri will rate a danger for Roger Varian but Perseus Way is good to go on the ground and can follow up, here on the way to better things.
