Verdict

Richard Hannon frequently unveils his better juveniles here so a market check on Fromnowon and Elegant Erin is essential. A similar comment is applicable to the Archie Watson first-time, Mitty's Smile, and Andrew Balding's Angel Grey in what looks an interesting contest. However, previous experience, especially of the winning nature, still frequently proves vital in juvenile contests and SPECIAL SECRET is taken to follow up her course and distance victory last month when routing the opposition. The form reads better than that of Sovereign Beauty who just inched home at Goodwood on debut but will improve again with Ameila Glass claiming a very handy 7lb.
