Verdict

DUTCH CONNECTION showed enough on his racecourse debut at Salisbury to suggest he can land this. Charlie Hills' colt wasn't beaten far in third and is preferred to Shootingsta, who finished well ahead of On The Tiles when fourth at Nottingham. Speedy Move never figured in better company at York last time and a bigger threat could come from the newcomer and $500,000 purchase Faydhan. Dark Wonder is a half-brother to a Listed winner and makes more appeal than stablemate Lopito De Vega.
