Verdict

Strong Conviction has had plenty of chances but Oscars Journey didn't run badly in better company at Newmarket last time and has to go on the short-list here under Ryan Moore. Prince Regal has also hinted at ability while Speedfit Boy is well connected and is an interesting newcomer. Fellow debutant OSTRALEGUS should have plenty of speed, however, being by champion sprinter Choisir and he's a race juvenile runner here for Richard Fahey - he gets the nod.
