Ghost Master historical data/form

A newcomers event for three year old's. Nothing really stands out on pedigree but (1) GOSPELUS makes some sort of appeal. The Rail Link gelding is out of an unraced dam but three out of four of her progeny have been winners so there should be ability in this lad. (3) GUYANE and (6) GRACE DE MONTOT should have some sort of chance along with (7) GOUTTE D'EAU. But it is all basically guesswork.
