Verdict

Al Baz was second at Brighton 12 days ago but the form is nothing special. Likewise Irondale Express' third over 6f here last month. Connections paid 80,000 dollars for BLUE ATLANTIC and this looks a decent starting point. He's closely related to the useful Indigo Cat and Blue Rider, who both stayed well beyond a mile, and makes more appeal than fellow debutant George The First, who was a cheap purchase. Street Boss and Frost In May both need to step up markedly on their first run to figure.
