Verdict

It may be worth giving the consistent ZABEEL STAR another chance to strike even though he can sometime be his own worst enemy by giving ground at the start. This represents a step up in trip for the gelding, which can only play to his strengths if they go a good gallop. That scenario would also suit Tan Arabiq, who arrives here in good heart and has solid place claims at least on these terms. Top weight does Roayl Reserve no favours, so it may be down to Fight Of Fantasy to provide the sternest challenge from the remainder.
  1. Zabeel Star
  2. Tan Arabiq
  3. Flight Of Fantasy
