Some powerful yards are represented in this maiden and Richard Hannon saddles both the experience Daunt, the preferred mount of Ryan Moore, and newcomer Onebytheknows. Miss Lahar has finished third in both runs so far and was sent off favourite at Bath last month but let's concentrate on several well-bred debutants who are likely to go on to better things. Luca Cumani's juveniles often need a run so Spunky is passed over here in favour of REX IMPERATOR, the first foal of a mare who won plenty of races between 6f and 1m. He holds an entry in one of the valuable sales races at Doncaster later in the season and can be expected to have had plenty of work at home.
