Verdict

Custodian, Panist and Shadow Leader all have pedigrees to suggest they should be pretty forward as juveniles, but it is hard to look past MAYSONG. Ed Dunlop's colt showed the benefit of his debut outing when beaten less than a length on heavy ground at Nottingham, and the recent rain is very much in the favour of the son of Mayson.

Verdict

A decent-looking 2-y-o event on paper with MASTER MCGRATH, one of several interesting newcomers, chanced before market clues. His yard can ready one and his Gimcrack entry catches the eye. Custodian and Panist both make plenty of appeal first time up, while there could be better to come still from Maysong, who was well backed when taking a big step forward at Nottingham.
