Verdict

GISBURN was taking on exclusively newcomers at Newbury last month, but it's hard to find fault in a 6.5-length victory backed up by the clock. His strength at the finish was most impressive and he's fancied to wear down Kaufymaker, who, like many Wesley Ward-trained representatives, comes with a big reputation. The Acropolis will go on improving and completes the shortlist.

  1. GISBURN (IRE)
  2. KAUFYMAKER (USA)
  3. THE ACROPOLIS (IRE)
