Verdict

On a day of tough races, they don't come much tougher than this bunch of rare winners. However, something has to prevail and the suggestion is THE RIGHT CHOICE, who is at least unexposed and drawn well. Round The Island could be a sizeable danger to the selection, with the old boy Seamster, Inexes, Shortbackandsides and Chaplin Bay all respected.
  1. The Right Choice
  2. Round The Island
  3. Shortbackandsides
