- 7f 127y, Soft (Good to Soft in places)
- 6 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Dansili colt, half-brother to a couple of Meydan winners and this sort of trip should suit on debut. Slow ground to cope with and yard just 2-15 here last five years. Will still be a likely fancy all the same.
Possibly running due to the owner's fondness for the track but yard are 1-5 with their 2yos here. However, bred for middle distances and is likely to find this test plenty sharp enough for his debut. Best watched unless market says otherwise.
Harbour Watch colt that was last of nine on his debut at Newcastle, weakening out of it late in the day. Will know a bit more here but still hard to fancy on that.
Invincible Spirit colt, cost 170,000gns as a foal, looks the one to beat based on his two efforts so far and his close second at York last time easily makes him the form pick here. Slower ground the only concern but that aside, holds leading chance.
€52,000 purchase as a yearling, bred to be a speedy sort but was well beaten on debut at Doncaster, always in rear after a slow start. Likely to do better at some point but needs huge improvement here.
Has only beaten the one horse home in two starts, although did a little better last time. Needs this for a handicap mark.
