Nothing other than breeding, connections and sales prices to go on as a field of nine newcomers make their way to post. THE LAST EMPEROR
looks one of the likelier types, being bred for both some speed and stamina. He cost 230,000 guineas as a yearling and represents the much respected Varian/Atzeni combination. Others to consider include Hugo Palmer's Adulate
and Sir Michael Stoute's Radio Source
, whilst both Baghdad
(by Frankel) and Dark Spec
(out of 2006 1,000 Guineas winner Speciosa) will almost certainly have the ability to win races.
