Verdict

Aidan O'Brien holds a strong hand here with two runners and the master of Ballydoyle will be optimistic that his Frankel colt NELSON can improve for the return to a mile and build on his Curragh second last time out. He also saddles the Camelot colt Christopher Robin, who is a worthy second string to the bow and one to keep an eye on. Godolphin's Dawn Approach colt Dawn Arrival is another to consider making his first start, while Tashman may also be worthy of a second look.

Verdict

CHRISTOPHER ROBIN is a tentative selection on debut but is bred to be well above average, and has the assistance of Seamie Heffernan in the saddle. Stable companion Nelson is the obvious danger and he has an experience advantage but may have to settle for second, though Tashman is another intriguing newcomer who won't be far away.
