Verdict

HIGHEST GROUND continued the theme of race-by-race progress and possibly found residual greenness catching him out when a narrow second in the Dante at York in July. Open to further improvement, he can land this on his way to better things. 4-y-o Epic Hero is better than he showed at Sandown and is feared along with Posted, whilst Darain remains with potential for John Gosden.
