Verdict

Celtic Man's victory at Bellewstown was over the minimum trip and he faces a stiff task in this much better race under a penalty. Both Gold Peregrine and Zakhm escape penalties for victories in auction races but the filly Remember You has extra as her unexpected success at Cork came in a maiden. Futurity should do better when tackling nurseries so the vote goes to the Ballydoyle newcomer GREAT WHITE EAGLE. He cost 120,000 dollars as a foal and a whopping 760,000gns as a two-year-old so must have impressed someone as entries in all the top juvenile races this year suggest.
