Verdict

Highland Falcon made a promising debut in the first 2yo race of the season here last month. The first three home that day were trained by Jim Bolger, Kevin Prendergast and Aidan O'Brien, who all have entries here. Bolger's Freedom Square is bred to stay much further, but so was the winner of that opener, though it's the Ballydoyle entry COACH HOUSE, by Oasis Dream out of a Group 3 juvenile winner, who should have the pace to make a winning start.
