Verdict

Aegean Destiny may do better now dropped in grade, however MISTER HUGHIE has arguably the better form and is taken to get off the mark at the fifth time of asking. Mick Channon's Elusive City colt is rated 70, which is a little clear of his rivals who have achieved a rating. He has been holding his form well and a repeat of any of his efforts in July might be enough to take this. That'lldonowthen tries the cheek-pieces for the first time, Lady Avon would not need to be a world beater to win on debut, whilst Miss Roma needs to improve for the step up in trip. Aegean Destiny is yet to shine and if she takes after her dam's side of the pedigree then she will need more time and a longer trip before she can win. True Red and Xaara Star have both been exposed as fairly moderate although both are consistent fillies at this level, and they may pose more of a problem than Bury St Edmunds, who looks no Digup St Edmunds just yet. Mister Hughie, representing a trainer who has a good record in juvenile selling races, is taken to win.
