Verdict

This looks a clash between the champion trainer and the heir-apparent, with STAY HUMBLE just about getting the verdict for the Mullins team. He was impressive in winning his only point-to-point and has some positive vibes coming from Closutton over his potential. With the yard in typically strong form, he will know his job on seasonal bow. Sometime Soon cannot be dismissed too hastily and Gordon Elliott's charge has fairly decent claims himself having also won his sole point-to-point, ensuring he and Lisa O'Neill should be right in the firing line when it matters most. Newcomer Thosedaysaregone and The Granson lead the list of dangers to the likely market principles.
  1. Stay Humble
  2. Sometime Soon
  3. Thosedaysaregone
