Verdict

MONALEE brings a strong level of form to the season. While he was no match for Presenting Percy at the Festival, that rival has been placed at the head of the market for next year's Gold Cup at he lost little in defeat that day. Shattered Love warrants respect given she may improve now back up in trip while stablemate Monbeg Notorious was given an unsuitable test last time and may return in form here.
