GOLD PEREGRINE, a half-brother to two winning juveniles, made a very encouraging start behind Muscle Beach and subsequent winner Wilshire Boulevard at Navan and may even have won with a clear run. With normal progress he will be very difficult to beat here before going on to better things. Crafty Codger showed little on his debut but made major progress to finish close up at Sligo, though the 7f and soft ground appeared to suit him. Danish Duke and Booker represent David Wachman and the former should prove the pick as he's out of a very speedily-bred mare.
