Verdict

A quality renewal of this Group 3 contest, with Broad Street the most interesting contender in the field. He is unbeaten in two starts, and the manner of his victory upon seasonal return suggested he can cope with the step up in class. Another name to note is Blenheim Palace who has his sights lowered after running in the Grade 1 Belmont Derby in America. He has proved on a couple of occasions that he is more than capable of competing at this level, and should appreciate the return to calmer waters. However, this also represents a drop in grade for LATROBE who produced a seasonal best when last seen which strongly suggested that his turn may be near.
