Verdict

Henry George needs to improve markedly on what he's shown so far but Burning Passion hinted at ability on his racecourse debut here last month and didn't take to the Fibresand next time. RED TRUMP looks the one, however, as he was only beaten a neck over C&D three weeks ago having tried to slip his field on the turn for home. Charles Hills' colt can go one better today though strong market interest in Prime Run would be highly significant. She cost 140,000gns as a yearling and is a half-sister to four successful sprinters including the very smart Silca's Sister and Group 2 winner Golden Silca.
