Richard Hannon won this with subsequent Richmond Stakes winner Harbour Watch last year. He runs two today and jockey bookings suggest the half-brother to three winners, BOLD PREDICTION, can get off the mark at the first time of asking. That's not to say stablemate Great Run doesn't have a chance as he cost 80,000gns and can also boast three winning relatives. Both make more appeal than Martial Art and Clement while Star Breaker had Gold Roll behind on his debut and the latter has since finished closer at Lingfield.
