An auction maiden that will not take much winning and FROGNAL, if re-producing his effort in the DBS Sales races at Newmarket will take all the beating. With plenty of winners behind him there, it looks solid form despite the worry that this six furlongs could possibly be on the sharp side. Minotaurious steps up to six furlongs after three efforts over five furlongs. She should have little difficulty picking up a nursery but looks rather flattered by her rating of 79 while I Am The Best, who was considered good enough to contest the July Stakes is best forgiven for his last effort as he literally fell out of the stalls. Retro does not appear one of the leading lights amongst the Hannon juveniles and will need to improve from his two efforts and Frognal is the pick.
