All eyes will be on the 2,500,000gns purchase Hydrogen. Though next week's Derby will most likely come too soon, we'll get some idea of how good Authorized's full-brother is today and the Irish Derby looks a more realistic target. There's also the small matter of beating the 103 rated SAAB ALMANAL. The latter wasn't beaten far behind The Great Gatsby in the Dante at York last time and James Fanhsawe's colt is the one to beat on that form. Wonderstruck is in the Ribblesdale and is Frankie's only ride on today's card while Richard Hughes takes over the reins on Hatsaway. Karraar is another to consider having run well over 1m2f at Newbury and he's preferred to Obstinate as they both step up in trip.
