Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

It looks a matter of time before FIGHT ZONE gets his head in front having progressed in each of his 3 starts so far. A reproduction of his most recent third at Gowran should make him tough to beat. Joseph O'Brien's Hype shaped better than the bare result on debut and can chase the selection home, while the market should guide expectations for newcomers Preamble and Yulong de Legend.
