Verdict

BELEAGUERMENT is well treated on AW form and shaped as if he might be up to capitalising when a staying-on second at Naas 3 days ago. With cheekpieces back on, he's taken to bely a quick turnaround to gain a belated first turf victory. Fit For Function is bang in form and drops in grade, so he's a danger, and Qaabil is on an appealing mark if he can build on a more encouraging run last time.
