Verdict

CLUB WEXFORD hasn't done much wrong and this could be his turn. Slightly disappointing when fancied for his debut, he's improved to finish close-up in two Listed contests and it will take a good one to lower his colours. It's highly likely that Iniesta will be a good one as the son of Galileo is out of the high-class Red Evie. He's a brother of the Group 3 winner Magical Dream so is an obvious threat on his debut. Zakhm made a very encouraging debut over this trip at Gowran when just failing to catch Captain's Affair. There'll be more to come though the faster ground may not play to his strengths. Pennys Angel made his debut in a very strong Curragh maiden that has produced several winners so he can also go well.
