In depth


Puerto Sol showed little improvement on his latest start while Danny Ocean may have finished third in both outings so far but was well beaten on both occasions. Capelli Rossi also has plenty of improving to do so a newcomer is preferred. Mellad and Fred represent powerful yards though both have plenty of stamina in their pedigrees and STREAKER is the more speedily bred. He’s an early foal from the family of Nunthorpe winner La Cucaracha, who wore the same colours, and Kevin Ryan’s colt gets a speculative vote with Clay Regazzoni another to note.
