In depth

Verdict

Yarroom is on the upgrade and won a nursery in good style over C&D earlier this month. But he won't have things his own way in this carrying a double penalty so a chance is taken on SECRET TALENT. Hughie Morrison's charge ran well for second over track and trip on his debut, beating a horse rated 87 in the process, and can take advantage of today's weight concession. El Buen Turista was an impressive winner at Kempton last time and has claims on that form while Plunder scored over 7f at the same track on his debut. King George River was also a winning debutant at Gowran for Aidan O'Brien and has since been sold to new connections after finishing last in Listed company but Hurry Home Poppa looks up against it.
