Verdict

Yair Hill has progressed well in a couple of runs and probably sets the standard but he won't be much of a price so a chance is instead taken with newcomer VANGUARD DREAM. Richard Hannon's success with juvenile debutantes is well advertised and this son of Oasis Dream is related to plenty of winners and this trip looks to be the right starting point. Fine Style improved slightly from his debut but will need more again so Vanguard Dream could be another debut winner for the Hannon team.
