Verdict
This race has had many multiple winners in recent years and PAISLEY PARK can be the latest with a follow-up to last year's success. He was impressive last season and has won both races comfortably this campaign, beating many of today's rivals. There are several that can be mentioned with place claims including Summerville Boy, who wasn't far behind Paisley Park last time, previous winner Penhill who looks to have been brought along steadily with this in mind, Emitom, who is still improving, and top mare Apple's Jade who hasn't shown her best here or this season but has the ability if everything falls into place.
  1. Paisley Park
  2. Emitom
  3. Penhill
