Verdict

PLUNKETT pulled clear of the remainder when runner-up to an improver at Gowran 8 days ago and the form is backed up by a good time, so he's fancied to go one better despite being hit with a 6-lb rise since. Dark Design arrives at the top of his game and looks the obvious danger ahead of Champagne Breath, who is open to improvement.

  1. PLUNKETT
