CABAL is nominated ahead of Bronze Prince and Barq although the market should reveal all. Those with experience don't appear to be anything out of the ordinary although Silent Majority and Super Yellow did show a modicum of ability on their debuts. Cabal has a nice draw in two and is a half-sister to a juvenile winner although it's a slight concern that her yard's record with juveniles at Dunstall Park isn't awe inspiring. Bronze Prince is fitted with a tongue-tie for his debut and he also has plenty of winners in his family as one might suspect. That comment can also be applied to Barq and their trainer can boast a level stakes profit at the track from runners in this age group. Corr Point looks the part on paper and has an entry for the Derby so he's worth a look but that entry is possibly a little optimistic and the yard has only had two juvenile winners this year. Monterossa represents a strong yard and is related to winners Down Under whilst you'd be well in profit if you followed all of the trainer's youngsters blind at this track over recent seasons. Interesting fare and Cabal couldn't be a confident choice at this stage of the proceedings.
