Verdict

PONTIUS PILATE cost £50,000 as a yearling and is a half-brother to smart two-year-old Cool Creek. Bryan Smart's colt is fancied to make a winning debut at the chief expense of Idler, Mark Johnston's first juvenile runner of the season. Profile Star is closely related to the speedy Moonlit Garden but Devlin's breeding suggests he'll need further than this. Fledgling trainer Keith Dalgleish has already had a winner so his Kheleyf colt Stonefield Flyer may be best of the rest with Kieren Fallon in the saddle.
