    Verdict

    Birthright is a half-brother to three winners and represents a yard that does well here with its juveniles but he only cost 800gns. Sevenna Star is closely related to a couple of useful winners in France but is probably going to do better with another winter on his back and the stable also run First Eleven, a superbly-bred half-brother to the brilliant Kingman among others and John Gosden’s probable first string. However, we’ll stick with those with experience with Falcon Eye probably better than he showed on debut at Newmarket in July and Adams Park having shown definite ability in his two starts. But he was behind the also-improving KITAABAAT (NAP) at Goodwood and Owen Burrows’ Dansili colt can make it third-time lucky today.
