Verdict

Brian Meehan saddles the pair with experience with Almurr much preferred to Manton Warrior after a promising run at Leicester. Daafr cost €350,000 and is out of a winning miler in the USA while Master Brewer is out of a 1m1f winner in France. Mr Spirit cost €150,000 and is related to four winners but Nathless is by Nathaniel so is likely to need more time. NEVERLAND ROCK cost €480,000 and is by No Nay Never out of a mare related to winning Group 1 miler Havana Gold so Richard Hannon's colt gets the nod. Wise Counsel is very speedily bred being a half-brother to three winning juveniles so he's one to note in the market.
