Verdict

A rip-roaring Rosebery Handicap, which is ultra competitive as one would expect for the prize money on offer. A number of battle hardened AW regulars clash heads with some unexposed sorts in what is a tough puzzle to solve. Big Country is to the fore of the market, with the expectation that his best days are to come, and that is almost certain to be the case in the care of the excellent Mick Appleby. Dutch Uncle (runner up in 2016) has very much been there and got the t-shirt, but life will be tough from his mark nowadays, whilst 2015 winner (and 2016 Magnolia Stakes runner up) Noble Gift clearly thrives at this track at this time of the year. However, the selection is FINAL. This tough, improving five-year-old gelding has done everything asked of him since last summer, and his recent AW form has a strong feel, and without any shadow of a doubt he fully proved his stamina over longer trips when winning at Newcastle recently.
