Verdict

Hardly the deepest race and although life is quite tough for three-year-olds in sprints against their elders at this time of year GLEAMING SUN did show what was possible last time out. Admittedly he would be better over 7f but he might be able to overcome that if he can repeat his last run. Both Falcao and Bonjour Steve look to be out of sorts at the moment but they are lurking on dangerous marks based on earlier form and both should be noted if they show any positive signs in the market. Sir Geoffrey is a solid yardstick in this company and over this trip and he could well make the frame.
  1. Gleaming Sun
  2. Sir Geoffrey
  3. Bonjour Steve
