Verdict

CELESTIAL FORCE is going the right way over hurdles and has scope for better still now tackling this longer trip, so he earns the vote. Let The Heirs Walk has to concede weight all round but may do better again with this step back up in distance unlikely to trouble him. Thais Toir should leave behind his opening effort over hurdles and is also worth a second look.

  3. THAIS TOIR (FR)
