Verdict

FREEWHEEL is likely to start at short odds for his debut and the son of Galileo, the first foal of a 6f Group 3 winner, won't need to be a world-beater to make a winning start. With Dermot Weld firing in the winners, Resolute Response should come in for support and the half-brother to Group 1 winner Casual Conquest could be one to follow in his first season. Teoirim has some decent form to her credit and will take advantage if the newcomers fail to come up to expectations.
