Verdict

PROJECT MARS showed good form when placed on his debut for this yard last time out and he can go one better than when finishing runner-up that day. The selection represents a good yard and he can get the better of Very Intense who also finished runner-up on his most recent outing. Third place can go the way of the four-year-old Say The Word who receives weight from all bar one of his rivals and should appreciate this step up in distance.
  1. Project Mars
  2. Very Intense
  3. Say The Word
