    Verdict

    The Hannon yard has always used Windsor as a starting point for juveniles and the stable enjoys a strong hand here with a double entry. Richard Hughes partners newcomer Premier Currency and the son of Elusive Pimpernel should receive a close market check but Sean Levey, consistently seen to good effect this term, rides stablemate GROUND CONTROL. Green on debut after dwelling from the stalls in a decent-looking Salisbury maiden, he was noted staying on pleasingly as the penny dropped and can maximise the benefit of that experience now. Brian Meehan is enjoying a good season to date and his Maccus is an interesting newcomer, likewise Modest and Gerrard's Quest.
