The betting should provide the best clues but OUR BOY BEN, a half-brother to the very useful According To Pete, hails from a yard who do well in this sphere and is given the nod. Kings Bandit cost 80,000 euros and has plenty of winning relatives while Uisge Beatha is a full brother to the very useful hurdler Amber Brook. Kid Wizzard has more pace in his pedigree than most and is one to note in the market.
