This would not be the strongest race of its type to be run here this summer and newcomers Balladeer, a nicely-bred 30,000gns purchase, and King Lothbrok, who cost £25,000, could go well while Quanah showed some ability in a similar contest here in June. But INDIAN VICEROY should finally get his head in front if reproducing his run behind the unbeaten More Than This in a competitive nursery at Goodwood just over two weeks ago.
