Verdict
CHAMPAGNE WELL built on debut promise when just denied by Downtown Getaway at Ascot last time, and should be too good for Talktomenow even if that one bounces back to the form which saw him chase home Getaway Trump at Plumpton. Redzor disappointed last time, but could easily bounce back after wind surgery, and can't be ruled out.
  1. Champagne Well
  2. Talktomenow
  3. Redzor
