Verdict

FIRST ASSIGNMENT stayed on well to win over 2m5f here first time out and he looks likely to appreciate this step up in trip and is one to follow at this early stage of his handicapping career so gets the vote. Weebill did nothing but improve last term in novice company and like the selection now goes up in trip with genuine potential. Boyhood was going well when last seen and definitely does stay so is another worth considering.
