Verdict

A tight little heat in which Written Broadcast rates a newcomer of note for a yard that does so well with juveniles but does face three rivals of considerable potential here. All will depend upon rates of improvement but it could just be that BAADIRR ran into a really good one in the shape of Mottrib at Newbury as he had the rest of the field comfortably accounted for. He is taken to go one better. Royal Commando came home strongly on debut and will surely progress although he does face different ground conditions now, whilst Imperial Gloriana, a daughter of Kingman, also revealed plenty of promise on debut and receives a useful 5lb sex allowance.
