Verdict

A well contested race of its type, this offers a fair opportunity for LORD VETINARI to follow up his impressive course and distance win last time out off a 4lb higher mark at a track that clearly suits him well. The first-time visor may eke the necessary improvement out of Viscount Loftus who has been threatening to win for some time and may be a big danger, while the drop in class should aid both Showmethedough and top weight Dragons Tail. Gabrial The Devil is another worthy of some consideration despite concerns about the trip.
  1. Lord Vetinari
  2. Dragons Tail
  3. Viscount Loftus
