Verdict

This should be a competitive affair but DAWN OF A NEW ERA is worth siding with. He remains an unexposed quantity with more to come and has won at the course before. Bravo One is likely to attract market support, Sun Giant is one to be interested in, and this trip could be a bit far for Forever Light.
