GRIEG HALL will need to improve having managed only fifth at Newmarket on his debut. But a host of subsequent winners have come out the race and John Gosden’s colt get the nod. Kasperenko sets the standard off a mark of 80 and was second at Leicester on his reappearance while Red Master may do better over today’s distance having debuted over 1m4f last month. Toronto Sound is a half-brother to Group 3 winner Cubanita and a newcomer to note.
