ADMIRAL OF THE RED is by Galileo out of Yorkshire Oaks and Prix Vermeille heroine My Emma so this should be his trip this year. He will have benefited from the experience gained at Killarney in August and can see off stablemate Nantucket Bay, a son of Giant's Causeway making his debut. Brown Butterfly is related to plenty of winners and is another who has been racing over trips too short while the Montjeu colt Darwins Theory should do much better in his second season after a couple of late season runs over a mile last year.
