Verdict

Three-year-olds generally have a good record against older horses in sprints at this time of the year so HEAD SPACE, a very impressive winner at Naas on his only juvenile start last April, gets the vote to begin realising his potential. The other entry from the younger brigade, Knock Stars, has twice finished around three lengths behind Inxile in Listed company recently and can go well here though any further rain will boost the prospects of Luisant, who was well behind Knock Stars last time but wasn't suited by the quick ground. Partner has also finished behind Inxile this season though the extra furlong today will be in his favour, a remark that also applies to Bay Knight who was going on strongly at the finish over 5f at Naas. Look Busy was having her first start for new connections at Naas but this speedy mare will be better suited by faster going.
