Verdict

King Oliver turned in a poor effort last time but is not easily written off on his decent debut at Newbury. Sanjuro also fared well on his introduction at the same track and should figure along with likely improvers Lionheart and Estifzaaz. Inaugural is related to four winners while Wrecking Ball and Prospera can also boast winning relatives but SPACE SHIP could prove good enough to score on his debut. John Gosden's colt is out of a Grade 1 winning dam in America and an entry in the Racing Post Trophy suggests he's shown ability at home for his powerful yard.
