Verdict

MASEN arrives at the top of his game so is taken to follow up his big-field handicap win here in this higher grade. Njord rates a big threat on the back of his sixth in Group 1 company at Ascot, with Current Option another who needs considering now he is lowered in grade.

  1. MASEN
  2. NJORD (IRE)
  3. CURRENT OPTION (IRE)
