Verdict

INDIAN MAHARAJA is by Galileo out of 1000 Guineas and Moyglare Stud Stakes winner Again and has an entry in the National Stakes. There will be a few long faces around Ballydoyle if he doesn't make a winning debut. Urban Moon, another of Galileo's offspring, also has a few fancy entries and is worth watching while David Wachman saddles No Wunder, a son of Rock Of Gibraltar. Taanif, sixth behind Coventry Stakes winner War Command at Leopardstown last time, looks the best of those with experience but it will be surprise if he can contain the debutants.
