Verdict

ICARIO has thrown a couple of decent chances away already, so may not be one for the mortagage, but there’s no denying his claims in another weak race. There doesn’t appear anything wrong with his attitude, so is worth one more chance. Fly Rory Fly seems to be getting the hang of things and can take second, with the interesting Holly Flight, who may need this, the best of the rest.
