Verdict

Hesbaan shaped nicely on debut at Kempton and wasn't beaten far at the finish. He should improve the experience and you'd also expect the Hannon pair Black Caesar and Prize to have learned plenty from their respective runs at Sandown and Ascot. But this doesn't look the strongest of maidens and a couple of newcomers catch the eye on breeding. Strategic Force is a half-brother to 7f winner Safari Sunseeker but the vote goes to LACOCK, whose yard does well here with its juveniles. A half-brother to a winning juvenile, he's also closely related to the stable's smart sprinter Gorse so shouldn't be short of speed.
