Verdict

Gustavus Vassa has shown plenty of promise in his few races so far and could easily be good enough for win this, but lacks experience, while Sam Remo is another three-year-old who could improve to go well. Preference, however, is for ARTFUL ARTIST. This eight-year-old has been running better than his form figures suggest recently and if turning up here on the top of his game should be capable of a very big run on ground which should suit him well. Song Of Namibia rates a danger if staying this far, while Here For The Craic seems well handicapper.
  1. Artful Artist
  2. Gustavus Vassa
  3. Song Of Namibia
