Verdict

All eyes will be on Frankel's brother NOBLE MISSION here. Sir Henry Cecil's colt did very well when runner-up to Swedish Sailor at Yarmouth in October where a poor draw didn't help and he has limitless potential. Ibtahaj cost 200,000gns as a yearling but was sent to Newcastle for a minor maiden on his debut where he started 20/1 and finished third. He was very green that day and should make a much better three-year-old. Cappielow Park has done enough to suggest there are races to be won with him while Sir Michael Stoute's newcomer Modern Tutor is by Selkirk out of the Cheveley Park winner Magical Romance. Seventh Sign, a half-brother to a Grade 1 winner in the USA, is another newcomer to note.
