VOICE OF A LEADER was well touted before making his debut at Newmarket and though not quite able to cope it was a good run and the experience won't be lost on him. He's handed the vote though there are some nicely-bred newcomers in opposition. Storm Force Ten is one to keep an eye on but his pedigree suggests he'll need further while Top Tug is by Halling out of a mare who won a Listed contest over this trip as a juvenile so he should have the pace for this. Tornesel is by Teofilo out of a 6f winner so he's another who should have enough speed to make his presence felt.
