Verdict

SOOHAAD made her debut in what looked an exceptionally strong Leopardstown maiden in October and ran well. She's related to some very useful performers and should have a successful season beginning with this. Sweet Mystery looked in need of the experience when making his racecourse debut at the Curragh's opening meeting and caught the eye once getting the hang of things. He looks a big threat with that run under his belt but one to watch out for here is the newcomer Cape Of Approval. Tommy Stack's son of Cape Cross is very closely related to the high-class juvenile Approval, who won the Norfolk Stakes and the Gimcrack so he should have plenty of pace and his dam is by Sadler's Wells.
