Verdict

THIRD REALM seemed to beat the Derby/King George winner Adayar fair and square in the Lingfield Derby Trial in May, and while Adayar has established himself as the leading 3-y-o since, Third Realm is probably better than his Derby performance suggests, so he shades the vote over Wordsworth, who has been placed in Group 1s the last twice. Yibir is another to consider in a strong Group 3.
