Verdict

Now Spun landed a Leicester maiden in October on soft ground and will find these conditions rather different though he could be anything and looks better than stablemate Filfil. Elleval was in excellent form at Dundalk before gaining a surprise victory in a conditions event over 7f here three weeks ago when Luhaif was 3l away in third and Tarbawi a further 2l behind. There's no difference at the weights here so David Marnane's charge should have the call again. DEAUVILLE PRINCE won a Listed contest at Ripon in August and wasn't beaten far in a Group 1 in Italy subsequently. He made a very promising start behind the high-class Soft Falling Rain in the 2000 Guineas here two weeks ago and that form entitles him to the vote here.
