Verdict

Potentially the race of the day, with established top-notcher PALACE PIER taking on the up-and-coming Baaeed. The former has a score to settle in this race having met with his only defeat here a year ago and the level he is consistently capable of tilts the scales his way. Baaeed is unbeaten and his ceiling hasn't been hit, with 2020 winner The Revenant deserving of serious respect, too.

  1. PALACE PIER
  2. BAAEED
  3. THE REVENANT
