Verdict

MASTER SPEAKER is a half-brother to several winners and has an entry in the Irish 2000 Guineas. He just came up short against a fitter rival at the Curragh and should go one better. Ere Yesterday made her debut in very testing ground in September and that run will have done her the world of good. With her stable in unstoppable form, she has to be a threat while In Salutem was an unlucky loser over the course and distance in November before finding 5f too short a fortnight later. It will be a surprise if any of the remaining trio prove good enough.
