Verdict

The Galileo colt LONG LIVE THE KING is out of a mare who won over 1m2f so was always likely to struggle as a juvenile. He's unlikely to become a stable star but this trip is more suitable and he gets the vote. Minsk stepped up to 1m4f at Tipperary and ran very well behind a couple of useful looking sorts with Secretsubstitute just behind. Both should go well over today's trip while Sam Bass returned with a fair effort behind Zanughan at Navan with today's rival Teajaybe behind and that will have done him the world of good.
