Given the only horse with experience has shown nothing so far, punters are left guessing as to the ability of the newcomers. Jockey bookings point to Mannaro of Marco Botti's duo despite stablemate Alexanor being a half-brother to a Group 1 winner. Itsnowcato and Wrangler are related to winners, as are both of the geldings, Second Step and Rock Of Leon. The latter's stable companion Bourbon Prince is a half-brother to a Listed winner among others, but the speculative vote goes to the 150,000gns purchase TACTICAL STRIKE, especially if the betting speaks in his favour.
