Verdict

POETIC FLARE has thrived on his racing, impressing with how he put things to bed in the St James’s Palace. On that form he’ll be hard to beat. The presence of Falmouth-winner Snow Lantern, diverted from the Nassau, adds some real spice to things. Tilsit, a winner over C&D at the meeting last year, looks the most interesting of the older brigade.
