Verdict

BOLSHOI BALLET was far from disgraced when fifth in a Group 1 just a week on from winning a maiden in the autumn and he sets the clear standard with the promise of more to come as a 3-y-o. Wuqood is just about second choice on form though there are several unknown quantities, notably Lough Derg and Taipan.
