Verdict

HAIL THE HERO cost 525,000gns and is by Galileo out of a Graded winner in the USA. The market may give us some clues to his chances but he has a Group 2 entry and Aidan O'Brien has won this on numerous occasions. He can make a winning start though Jim Bolger's Selskar Abbey is related to several winners and could also be useful. Spryt is likely to be a warm order after his encouraging debut behind Ballydoyle's Homeland at Listowel. The winner hasn't been seen since but the three who followed the pair home have all been well beaten so the form may not be that strong. But Prologue should find a race soon and it could well be today as he looked to be improving on his latest start at Leopardstown.
