Verdict

None of those with experience have pulled up any trees so far so it may pay to look at the credentials of the newcomers. Doyannie cost only €5,000 but does have a pedigree for jumping. MAJOR CABALLO is Flat-bred so stamina may be an issue but he was a 40,000gns yearling and could outclass these on the forecast going. Hot In The City may prove the pick of the remainder.
