Aidan O'Brien arrives here mob-handed but FURNER'S GREEN looks the one to be on as he comfortably beat today's rival Battle Of Saratoga on his debut on ground with some give at Tipperary and has entries in all the major juvenile events. Balty Boys showed some debut promise and gave notice of much more to come with an impressive success over Firestarter at Newbury. Zumbi is another with plenty of scope and made a very promising debut at Ascot as did the expensive Entifaadha at Newmarket where he beat a huge field. Archbishop and Moon Pearl also made successful starts and could be anything but the main threat may emerge from Al Khan, who was always travelling very well at Doncaster and looks to have a bright future.
