Referendum was easy to back on his debut at Sandown and showed very little though he's still likely to prove best of the quartet with experience. Bartholomew Fair cost 525,000gns and is by Dansili out of the Coronation Stakes winner Rebecca Sharp. He'll be one to note when tackling middle-distances but fellow newcomer JOHNNY BARNES, who cost 310,000 euros, has a pedigree more suited to this trip and the half-brother to seven winners can make a successful start.
