Verdict

Richard Fahey's horses continue in fine form and Sinaloa is a half-brother to four winners and out of a two-year-old 5f winner. John Quinn is starting to fire after a slow start and Lord Riddiford is a half-brother to several winners, mostly sprinters. Queen's Sargent is related to some smart winners in France though mainly milers but Kyleque is by Equiano out of a 5f two-year-old winners so should have pace to burn. VENTURA KNIGHT started a short-priced favourite on his debut at Southwell but never got involved after a tardy start. He'll have learnt plenty and can put the experience to good use.
