Framley Garth makes no appeal so one of the newcomers will likely make a winning start. The Hannon yard has sent out five of the last 10 winners and HOLLAND PARK may well be good enough given he cost 150,000gns and Ryan Moore does the steering. He's preferred to stablemate Lexington Times while Austin Friars sports the Godolphin first colours ahead of Zephuros and is a half-brother to Group 2 winner Lui Rei among others. Giantouch and Landwade Lad are worth noting for the future.
Zephuros (IRE) Invincible Spirit colt out of West Wind.
Lexington Times (IRE) Paco Boy colt out of Fuaigh Mor.
Holland Park More Than Ready colt out of B Berry Brandy.
Landwade Lad Dansili colt out of Sell Out.
