Verdict

This should fall to a newcomer as those with experience have shown little so far. STORM TROOPER is the obvious starting point as the Hannon and Hughes representative. The £52,000 purchase is owned by the Coolmore team and the son of Acclamation would not have to be anything out of the ordinary to make a winning debut. Gamgoon is interesting on paper but Harry Dunlop hasn't really got cracking with his juveniles this term and the market may prove instructive as to his chance here. The Tate yard remains in good heart at present so Tobougg Happy could be interesting and is preferred to once-raced stable companion Mersad.
