Verdict

That Boy David has been narrowly beaten in all three starts to date and though odds-on when caught close home by Korbous at Gowran did nothing wrong and will be fancied to make amends. However, HEXAGONAL's overall form is far superior, especially when runner-up in a Listed contest at Ayr in September, and he'll find this grade much more to his liking. Newcomer Nile Venture has a nice pedigree and should win races but the remainder with experience are likely to struggle.
