None of these have looked like winning so far, so it would be no surprise if THE THIRD MAN proved good enough on his debut. John Gosden's charge can count stablemates Galipot and Trade Commissioner among his winning relatives and gets the nod. Galuppi is also related to a couple of winners and is another newcomer to note. Jalingo was still beaten seven lengths when third on his debut at Lingfield and both Captain Morley and Attenzione may improve past him.
