Verdict

Free Code followed his Thirsk maiden success by taking a Haydock nursery and though this is a big step-up in grade he wouldn't be coming here unless thought capable of going well. Connor King has ridden Sign From Heaven in all of her four starts and keeps the ride despite not being able to use his claim. David Wachman also runs Remember You, who may have more scope though she was put in her place by GREAT WHITE EAGLE at Naas. The winner was always travelling nicely and entries in every major juvenile event over the next couple of months shows how highly he's regarded. Bluebell and Expedition also represent Ballydoyle but it will take something special to cause an upset.
