Laugharne made a promising debut at Kempton last month when runner-up over a mile. But CARTHAGE also ran well in a better maiden than this at Newmarket when well ahead of Norse Star and he gets the vote with improvement expected. Burmese Breeze and Big Orange are related to winners while Authorized Too is another newcomer to note but Danjeu could prove best of the debutants. John Gosden's colt has an early entry in the Derby and any strong support for the 725,000gns purchase could prove significant.
