Verdict

This could be a contest to take close note of with promising newcomers taking on colts that have already displayed potential. Universal was strongly supported on debut but has to be considered disappointing after finishing fourth. He'll surely improve for the run but similar comments apply to RIGHT TO DREAM, who very much caught the eye when claiming the minor placing behind the useful Trumpet Major at Goodwood. It's no secret that stable youngsters usually improve significantly for the run and he can strike for Brian Meehan. Bounty Seeker and Roman Soldier showed enough on their respective debuts to warrant attention, whilst the market should be a useful pointer towards some interesting newcomers.
