Verdict

Baccarat cost 180,000 euros and his dam won as a two-year-old. Paul Hanagan's presence implies he's preferred to stablemate and fellow newcomer Poontoon, but a chance is taken on AL FREEJ. She makes her racecourse debut and the half-sister to a couple of winning sprinters may be good enough to score at the first time of asking. If not, Decision By One looks the one to beat as he went very close over C&D last month with today's rival Naughtical behind. Sweetnessandlight had Italian Ice well beaten when runner-up at Redcar and looks best of the rest.
