Verdict

This looks the weaker of the two divisions so Fromthestables Com shouldn't be far away, despite a modest effort on Polytrack last time. Netley Marsh should improve for his run over 5f at Kempton but it would be no surprise to see STAG HILL go close on his debut. By Redback, who has sired some very decent two-year-olds in the past, Sylvester Kirk's colt is from the same family as the smart filly My Branch and wouldn't need to be anything special to score in this. Eve Johnson Houghton's juveniles tend to improve with experience but Sovereign Waters is another with a decent pedigree and she still holds an entry in the Two-Year-Old Trophy at Redcar in the autumn.
