Verdict

Crafty Wonder and Scepticism showed little on their respective debuts but Gabrial The Master is a half-brother to a winner in Italy and worth noting on his introduction. Bix has a shout if forgiven his latest below par effort though his best run came on the Fibresand and DAAREE makes most appeal. He'll have come on for last month's modest debut over 6f at Newmarket and the Godolphin colt is taken to open his account over today's longer trip.
