Verdict

BOLSHOI BALLET was impressive when a comfortable winner of the Ballysax Stakes over C&D a month ago and with further progress very much on the cards, he should take some stopping. That said, Mac Swiney was a Group 1 winner as a juvenile and will give the selection a lot to think about if returning near peak form.
