Verdict

Darkening was a big disappointment last time having shown ability on his debut at Newmarket and the other Godolphin colt, Tarbawi, may improve past him. Big Thunder has shown little so far but LORD OF LEITRIM has done enough to suggest he can win an ordinary maiden especially when a close-up second at Lingfield on his latest outing. Brian Meehan's charge gets the nod ahead of Alerted, a half-sister to four winners and worth a second glance in the betting on her debut.
