Verdict

The market may have a big say as to what will be winning here, with a few unexposed sorts to take into consideration. Preference at this stage is for SILENT WARRIOR, who should do better as he gains experience and has shown flashes of ability in his five starts to date. This relative speed test should suit on breeding too. Without Frontier arguably holds the best piece of actual recent form and should be in the money, and both MIdnight Walk and Walteroneeightone are possible improvers today.
