True Spirit drops back in trip and could prove best of those with experience ahead of Countess Lovelace and Ray Ward, never in contention on his debut despite a 205,000euros price tag. However, one of the newcomers wouldn't need to be anything special to land this so a chance is taken on AMBLESIDE. A half-brother to Godolphin's Group 1 winner All The Good he gets a speculative vote ahead of Nadmah, the first foal of a 2m winner. St Georges Hill is out of a prolific mare and Short Shrift is also related to three winners while Culture Trip's dam is a half-sister to the very smart pair Conroy and Crystal Gazing.
