Verdict

BOLIVAR was upwardly mobile as a 3yo and far from disgraced when sixth in a listed event at the Curragh on return, so there's a chance he can outclass his rivals with another improved showing having a first try in handicap company. The race is wide open, however, and the likes of Iowa, Camorra and Baby Zeus should all be respected in opposition.

  1. BOLIVAR (FR)
  2. CAMORRA (IRE)
  3. IOWA (IRE)
