Verdict

Little King Robin has been running very well over hurdles and should have enough pace to get involved but it's very difficult to enthuse about the chances of Thomas Wedgwood. Aidan O'Brien's Galileo colt attracted support on his only racecourse start at Gowran in April but finished tailed off last though the ground was very testing and he can surely do better. WHITEY O'GWAUN has a middle-distance pedigree so it was no surprise to see him running over 1m1f in his first campaign. He will have found 7f much too short on his reappearance and this trip should enable him to get off the mark. Break My Mind ran quite well on her debut at the Curragh and could prove best of the remainder.
