Verdict

A race which promises to throw up future winners, but without any firm inside knowledge is best described as 'a bit of a guessing game', so stakes should be kept to a bare minimum. Mick Maestro is a bumper winner, but one must ponder the reason for his subsequent 14 month absence since winning at Towcester in November 2016. A number of the unraced horses make some appeal based upon their connections, and this list includes, but isn't exhaustive of Serosevsky and Smith's Bay. However, both LOCKER ROOM TALK and One Night In Milan have the loftiest price tags to justify, and sustained market support for the former (if it arrives) would be just enough to tip the scales ever so marginally the way of the Adam Wedge ridden rules debutante.
