The Sportsman's Verdict
POSTED hit the crossbar in a pair of novice races last summer and she was not disgraced in higher grades on her final couple of starts. Back in novice company, the daughter of Kingman could be very hard to beat. Red Armada is another who displayed plenty of promise as a juvenile and he is an obvious threat to the selection. Excellent Magic is a newcomer to note having cost 200,000gns and she is a half-sister to the Group performer Folkswood. Other debutants with eye-catching pedigrees are Cool Possibility and Majaalis.
