Verdict

JUVENILE LEAD is, fittingly, set to be Sir Michael Stoute's first two-year-old runner of the year. He's by Sea The Stars so is of obvious interest and his dam has already produced a couple of winners. Though he'll undoubtedly improve when tackling further, we still prefer him to Cable Bay who looked one-paced when fourth at Nottingham. Hatha Hooh was a big disappointment when favourite at Goodwood but should be capable of better. Handwoven was well beaten at Chester and St Vincent and Whaleweigh Station may just need this but could be worth monitoring for future reference.
