Stepping Down will need to show some improvement if she's to get involved and Keychain has been well beaten in both starts to date. AGREEMENT looks a stayer in the making and the Irish St Leger is probably the target. He'll enjoy the heavy ground, as he did when attempting to make all at Tipperary in May, and appears to have been saved for a late summer campaign. Calibrate is the sixth foal of a mare who has already produced five winners and will have had this as her target. She's an obvious threat hailing from Dermot Weld's yard while Roman Romance can be expected to run well for John Oxx so a market check is advised.
