Verdict

Some exciting 2yo’s on display, nine having won on their debuts; a complex puzzle with none having run more than once. Aidan O’Brien has dominated this event with seven winners since 2001 so his Curragh winner Admiral Nelson has to be respected stepping up to 6f. The Johnston stable has been banging in juvenile winners so all his three must be respected with Newbury winner Qaader looking the best of them. Creative Force bids to confirm debut form with Saeiqa and Dark Lion but LAUDED made a real impression when skipping clear at Haydock in what looked a good contest and he’s taken to land this prize. Talbot appeals most of those likely to start at double-figure odds in a fascinating Coventry.
