In depth


All four of these journey from North Yorkshire though Littletimyhoulihan has no easy task on his debut. The remaining trio represent yards with a good strike with two-year-old runners here including Mark Johnston, who introduces THE GATEKEEPER and he may prove good enough as a half-brother to a Listed winner in Italy. Atomic Force is related to a couple of winners and Khunan is the first foal of a winning sprinter.


Atomic Force (IRE) Cotai Glory colt out of Atlas Silk.

Khunan Twilight Son colt out of Hilary J.

Littletimyhoulihan Due Diligence colt out of Secret Romance.

The Gatekeeper (IRE) Excelebration colt out of Cherry Creek.

Reel Of Fortune (IRE) Highland Reel filly out of Romantic Stroll.
