Verdict

The Ballydoyle pair Eye Of The Storm, a son of Galileo, and the Montjeu colt KINGDOM, are entered in all the big autumn juvenile events and preference is just for the latter, who is a full brother to Jan Vermeer, despite Joseph picking the former. Mourani is equally well connected being related to the very useful Mourilyan and looks a cracking middle-distance prospect for next year. Magnolia Ridge looks best of those with experience as he stayed on very nicely on his debut once the penny dropped when tackling 7f at Leopardstown.
