Verdict

BLUE SARI saw the wheels come off following his C&D maiden success back in 2019 but was in the process of getting his career firmly back on track when falling at the last in the Coral Cup last month (looked booked for second). He gets the nod to confirm the promise of that run, possibly at the chief expense of the progressive Decimation. Fastorslow and Panda Boy complete the shortlist.

  2. DECIMATION (IRE)
  3. FASTORSLOW (FR)
