Verdict

STRATEGIC can take this opening two-year-old contest for trainer Richard Hannon. With all 15 runners ye to see a racecourse it may well pay to side with the son of Kodiac who was a relatively expensive purchase as a yearling and represents leading connections in this. Keynote is another to hail from a good yard and Roger Varian's charge can claim second ahead of Two Seas who was an expensive purchase at the sales recently.
