It looks like RED REFRACTION, a 55,000gns yearling who is related to several Group winners, is expected to be the pick of Richard Hannon's three runners on this occasion and he gets the nod though Correggio, a full brother to smart sprinter Prime Defender, should certainly win races. Silver Ridge will improve for his run at Newbury but another furlong wouldn't come amiss, though he still has more scope than Composed. Noble Bull also catches the eye on debut and Michael Hills prefers him to stablemate Overrider, though he does have more of a dirt pedigree. Whipper's Boy may do best of the rest.
