Verdict

A case of quantity over quality in this maiden, with LIFETIME AMBITION selected to finally get his head in front for Jessica Harrington. He held every chance when finshing runner-up a fortnight ago and won't get many easier opportunities to get off the mark. Champagne Sparkles should improve on his debut effort so can chase the selection home, ahead of Fortune Street and Hollywood West.
