Verdict

Alwaaqi, Colonsay and Rogue Reporter are all expected to improve on their respective debut efforts, while Piers Gaveston's debut behind subsequent Listed winner Bronterre looks better now, though he's disappointed since. King Of Wing has been placed over 6f and is not easily dismissed stepping up a furlong, but a chance is taken on the newcomer STATEMENTOFINTENT. He's a first foal but his dam is related to nine winners and any strong support for Brian Meehan's colt in the betting could prove significant. Hey Fiddle Fiddle makes most appeal of the remainder.
