Verdict

Gold Souk and King's View will both improve for their debuts but take on some well-bred newcomers. The latter's yard is also represented by Manigordo, a half-brother to two winners at around this trip in the USA while Al Dabaran is by Dubawi out of a mare who produced a winner with her first foal to race. Aldrich Bay looks well bought at E8,500 as he's related to several winners but the vote goes to URSA MINOR, a 240,000gns son of Sea The Stars and related to a host of winners including two-year-old Listed winner Gemstone
