Verdict

Pool House made a fair start at Sandown and though a beaten favourite at Newmarket subsequently that looked a better race than this. China In My Hands hasn't shown much and never really got competitive at Bath last time so this can go to STAR CODE. Richard Hannon's colt made his debut at Windsor and, after missing the break, he gave plenty of encouragement when third to his odds-on stablemate Musical Comedy. With progress expected he can get off the mark. Roring Samson is related to several winners and any money for him should be noted but Classic Mission finished last on his debut at Windsor.
