BAREND BOY did not appear to go on from his encouraging debut performance when finishing third at Newmarket a couple of weeks ago. That said, it was still a respectable performance and he remains the one to beat this afternoon. My Dear Friend was well supported on his debut and he should only improve for that experience. Daarik, a half-brother to a French Listed winner, cost 325,000gns as a yearling and is a newcomer to note today.
Plenty of interesting newcomers on show here, including DAARIK, who is related to plenty of winners and hails from a yard in fine form. He is taken to make a successful debut. Barend Boy brings the best form credentials and must be respected, whilst My Dear Friend may improve on his Salisbury debut effort.
