Verdict

Richard Hannon sets a poser in saddling three including precociously-bred newcomer Super but it's once-raced Poppy who may fair best of his trio having shown promise over course and distance on debut. She looked green under pressure and carried her head awkwardly but normal improvement should see her go close with Richard Hughes on board. Our preference however is for WIQAAYA. Ed Dunlop's daughter of Red Ransom showed up well for a long way in a HQ maiden won by one of Hannon's and with a now 95-rated horse taking second the form appears strong. She should improve for that and could be tough to pass if sent to the front as anticipated, although Proenza could improve for a tongue-tie and the likes of Map Of Heaven and Shadow Of The Sun need a market check.
