Verdict

Prudent Approach cost 775,000 euros, which isn't surprising as she's a full sister to the brilliant New Approach. She has to be kept on the right side though the racecourse experience of SPARROW may prove too much for her. Aidan O'Brien's filly put a moderate debut behind her when runner-up to Tested over a mile here where she led at today's trip. Golden Amber showed good speed when placed over the minimum trip at Tipperary and the extra furlong won't be a problem though it's Zaindera, who hasn't been beaten far in two strong maidens over the course and distance, who can provide the main threat.
