Verdict

Richard Hannon has won previous renewals with future stars such as Major Cadeaux, Canford Cliffs and Strong Suit so MYSTERIAL is worth sticking with here. He never got into full stride until the race was almost over on his debut at Newmarket and much better is expected today. Brian Meehan runs three with 50,000gns colt Freeport making most appeal while Star Breaker cost the same amount and he could prove best of Sylvester Kirk's duo. Walter White and Knight Charm are others to note in the betting on their debuts.
