Verdict

TENTH STAR showed up very nicely on his debut behind stablemate Reply at the Curragh, staying on nicely in the closing stages. That will have done the son of Dansili the world of good and he'll be difficult to beat. The stable also run newcomer David Livingston, a Galileo colt out of a mare from the familiy of High Chaparral so he's more likely to need further in time. Zip Top is owned by Sheikh Mohammed and is the first foal of a mare who cost $1.5m. With his stable in outstanding form it would be no great surprise to see him take this at the first time of asking. Echo Knight couldn't make an impression on his debut at Gowran but will have come on for the run.
