Verdict

Dove Mountain commands respect but does not appear to be a leading light amongst Ballydoyle's juveniles on available evidence, though Aidan O'Brien will almost certainly find a race for the son of Danehill Dancer and this quicker ground may well be more suitable. Celtic Man shaped pleasingly on his Down Royal debut and should go well, although a sixth furlong may well suit in time, whilst the market should help to sort out the three Wachman candidates. The choice is ABBAKOVA, who has finished behind Stubbs, Coach House and Bye Bye Birdie in three starts to date and was only just denied in the shadows of the post by the latter last time at Cork.
