Verdict

HAPPY POWER cost 625,000 guineas as a yearling and following a pleasing if not exceptional debut at Newbury, the Dark Angel colt is sure to improve for the experience as Andrew Balding's youngsters often do. Smile A Mile was much improved at Haydock last time and could easily build on that third-placed finish, while Triple Distilled is respected back down to six furlongs.

Verdict

SMILE A MILE took a big step forward when third at Haydock, finishing with running left, and can open his account. Happy Power looks the chief danger. Kyllachy Warrior is a newcomer to keep an eye on.
