The Sportsman's Verdict
A competitive renewal but the one to beat is clearly TOO DARN HOT, who was European Champion Juvenile last year following wins in the Dewhurst and Champagne Stakes. The step up in trip should not be a problem and he is hard to oppose. Japan won the Beresford Stakes last season and he is an obvious threat to the selection, especially as he hails from the yard that have won most of the recent Derby trials. Line Of Duty is another who could go well, while Telecaster should not be underestimated despite having only won a novice stakes event.
