Verdict

Tricky contest to start proceedings with possibly Ingleby Mackenzie, Upgraded and Pete So High showing plenty of dash reminiscent of their Flat days in the early stages of this contest. Azua Emery is likely to be a warm order here with plenty of market support for the Noel Meade-trained Vision D'Ete and both sure to run their races but, if up with the early pace, preference will be for PETE SO HIGH.
  1. Pete So High
  2. Azua Emery
  3. Vision D'ete
