Verdict

The vote goes to SPEED MASTER, although he wasn't overly impressive when making a winning bumper debut at Ffos Las but the front two were well clear and his yard are supreme in these events. He concedes weight all round in what looks an above-average bumper for the track with a host of leading yards represented by interesting newcomers. The market should guide as to expectations, although Overafrica does rather take the eye on paper. Kusadiki and Mousenikov showed enough on their respective debuts to suggest that they're open to plenty of improvement in a potentially decent contest.
