Verdict

A highly competitive handicap that may be turned on its head if PRECISION follows the same path as a good number of handicappers that have come through the ranks at Sir Michael Stoute's yard. The son of Galileo has bags of scope for improvement and may have plenty more to offer over this new trip. Dubawi Fifty also makes plenty of appeal, as his also on the upgrade and has untapped potential. Similar comments also apply to Quloob, who has thrived since stepping into races of this nature and is feared most. Sam Missile and last year's winner Ravenous are others to monitor for speculative each-way punts.
