Lilbourne Lad's form is hard to knock and he should confirm Phoenix Stakes running with Reply, despite being 3lb worse off here. This was won last year by Approve under a penalty so his task is not an impossible one. Caspar Netscher is another tough juvenile who has been holding his own in top-class company and he has the beating of B Fifty Two and Wise Venture on Newbury running. But there's a just a chance a couple of these will be more progressive at this stage of the season. Burwaaz may be better over 5f, while Diamondhead struggled to land his maiden against a field of newcomers at Newmarket last month. On a line through the runner-up, that gives JUSTINEO his measure and a chance is taken on Willie Haggas' easy Newmarket winner who, being out of a Montjeu mare, should relish this holding ground more than most.
