    Verdict

    Eva Icon was only beaten a length here on her debut and is preferred to stablemate Astapo while El Patron debuted at Ascot and could go well. But BHUBEZI finished behind a couple of subsequent winners when fifth at Newbury on his introduction and gets the speculative vote on that form. Already gelded, Mojandil wears his owners first colours ahead of the Hannon colt Tilaawah and the latter also runs Pepinillo, a half-sister to a Listed winner, and the €430,000 yearling Epidemic. Mihrab is a half-brother to a winning sprinter and is another newcomer to note.
