Verdict

Opera Flute was unfancied for his debut at Goodwood but posted a decent effort to finish second over 6f and Ryan Moore takes over the reins here. However, though ELLAAL was beaten six lengths by Spiritual Star over C&D on his introduction, the latter has since ran well in the Dewhurst and Charlie Hills' colt is unlikely to come up against one that good here. Newcomers worth keeping an eye on in the betting include the 135,000gns son of Lawman, District Attorney, while Strictly Private is a brother to two winners and a half-brother to six others. Saloomy and Periphery are both related to Group winners and are others to note.
