Verdict

PEDISNAP comes here in better form than most and arrives with a less exposed profile than his rivals. With more progress possible, there's plenty to like about his profile in a race of this nature. Queluz may benefit from first-time headgear while Nam is worth considering after an excellent second at Naas when last seen.
  1. Pedisnap
  2. Queluz
  3. Nam
