Saxon Warrior colt who made a promising debut when fourth of 15 in maiden at Roscommon (7.3f, soft) 46 days ago. Open to a fair bit of progress and seemingly the pick of Ryan Moore.

Forecasts

Spirit Genie (11/4), Victoria Road (16/5), Eastern Legend (5/1), Yosemite Valley (8/1), Indestructible (8/1), Slan Abhaile (11/1), St Kitts (12/1), Dontspoilasale (14/1), National Emblem (20/1), Wave Machine (22/1), Mile End (25/1), Andrassy (33/1), Mether (100/1), Gut Feeling (150/1), Mount Ruapehu (200/1), Asgard's Captain (200/1)

Verdict

VICTORIA ROAD offered plenty to work on amidst greenness when fourth in a Roscommon maiden last month and with improvement a distinct possibility, Aidan O'Brien's charge is fancied to score second time up. Similar comments apply to Sprit Genie and Eastern Legend so they may emerge as the mains threats, while St Kitts, Indestructible and Yosemite Valley are all newcomers with plenty to recommend on paper.
