In depth

Verdict

My Dream Boat found only one too good at Hamilton on his debut and sets the standard. But it's not a very high one and though still preferred to Spirit Of The Sea, it would be no surprise if GLENALMOND proved too good for him. The latter is a brother to Group 1 winner Wootton Bassett and a half-brother to six other winners. Prince Of Time cost 100,000gns and is another newcomer to note.
