COOL STRUTTER held a choice of engagements this weekend and Richard Hannon's colt should prove hard to beat if he reproduces his third on debut at Doncaster. William Muir isn't ordinarily associated with precocious juveniles but Inniscastle belied big odds to run well at Windsor and the bookmakers are unlikely to be quite so accommodating here. Gin Trap is bred to be better over further though any market confidence behind the apparent Qatar Racing second string should be noted. La Estatua is related to a number of winning juveniles and having shaped with promise on her debut at Chepstow, she takes the colts on again. Toocoolforschool is a relatively recent recruit to Karl Burke's stable and the handler has already given him the unkindest cut of all.
