Verdict

In a tight knit affair the vote goes narrowly to LAZARUS, who appears to have turned over a new leaf of late and has every chance here if he stays and reproduces his brave win at Chelmsford recently. Despite having top weight Desert Ruler shouldn't be far away and is another stepping up in trip. There are no stamina doubts for Brotherly Company, but he has to prove he can deliver on this surface, while Archipeligo and Somnambulist are others with claims.
  1. Lazarus
  2. Desert Ruler
  3. Brotherly Company
