Verdict

MINT CONDITION was worth extra credit for splitting the best-positioned pair from a far-less-advantageous pitch in the Leamington at Warwick last month, so he's given the vote with the prospect of more to come over this longer trip. Old-rivals Young Buck and Beatthebullet also need viewing positively.
