Verdict

CERTAIN LAD is penalised for making a winning start at Redcar but has the form in the book and is worth sticking with. Sword Of Gold has plenty of improving to do to figure in this while Swift Justice was well beaten on his debut and jockey bookings suggest stablemate and newcomer Drogon is preferred. Pablo Escobarr and Dombra are other newcomers to note with the former a 200,000 euros purchase and brother to a winner on the all-weather while the latter is out of a Group 3 winner.
