Verdict

Veya didn't have much luck in-running at Sandown and can do better but this should go to a newcomer. SILENT BULLET has an ideal pedigree for this and the Godolphin colt can make a winning start as Strassman looks as though he'll do better when attempting a mile at least. Archibald Thorburn is by Duke Of Marmalade out of a 6f winner so he should possess the necessary pace and can make his presence felt.
