Verdict

Despite carrying top-weight YAMATO can win again here. The form of his latest C&D win also with top-weight has worked out well and he will take all of the beating. Jessica Harrington has two interesting three-year olds here but the draw of Misty Mountain is a concern so One Liner is preferred having appeared to be going the right way prior to meeting very soft ground last time. Few have won more impressively than Il Piccolo Grande last time but the handicapper takes action to make life significantly tougher.
  1. Yamato
  2. One Liner
  3. Il Piccolo Grande
