Verdict

FOXTROT ROMEO cost 90,000 euros and is a brother to three winners and a half-brother to four more. An entry in next month's Group 2 Mill Reef Stakes suggests he's shown plenty at home and Bryan Smart's charge is the speculative selection in a field of newcomers. Glamorous Angel was bought for 105,000gns and is related to Group 3 winning sprinter Glamorous Spirit, while Personal Touch is worth keeping an eye on as his half-brother scored on his racecourse debut. Kevin Ryan won this in 2009 so Bu Samra should also be noted for any strong support in the betting.
