Verdict

The 95,000euros purchase DONNY ROVER was not unfancied on his debut in the Brocklesby over track and trip but inexperience got the better of him. Having missed the break, he didn't get going until the race was over and much better is expected here with Kieren Fallon taking over the reins. Peterkin was tailed off last on his debut and can only improve on that while Mr Dandy Man makes most appeal of the newcomers. He's a half-brother to three winners and has a couple of early entries in valuable sales races later in the season.
