IFTAAR was campaigned at a higher level than this last term when far from disgraced in decent nursery company at York and Newmarket after a couple of promising maiden efforts. The Bushranger gelding has been found a good opportunity to get off the mark here and is expected to prove too good for A Legacy Of Love. She showed sufficient juvenile promise on three 7f starts to rate a threat to the selection on this first foray over a furlong shorter. Royal Brave, a son of Acclamation, looks clear next best as the remainder appear outclassed.
