Verdict

Boitron and Grenadier are two newcomers to take seriously. The former represents the Hannon juvenile battalions and the latter hails from the Archie Watson yard which has more than proved its' touch with youngsters. Champion Brogie shaped nicely on his Windsor debut and the already gelded son of Alhebayeb should progress for the run. Nevertheless, FOX COACH NAP) sets a pretty demanding standard after putting in an excellent shift on his debut when runner-up in a Newmarket maiden last month. He stuck on well in the closing stages and should prove hard to beat with the benefit of that experience behind him.
