Verdict

Saltonstall was a big winner here on Tuesday and had a few of these rivals trailing behind him. They include RUFUS KING who is taken to be better suited by the drop in distance and continue the trend of Britsih-trained winners dating back to 2014. Magical Wish is another from overseas with a big chance and his profile suggests he may develop into a specialist at this distance while fellow raider Certain Lad should be in the mix. Madam Seamstress is one to note up in distance and although she's on a technically high mark, she's coming off the back of a clear career best.
  1. Rufus King
  2. Magical Wish
  3. Saltonstall
