Verdict

STEINKRAUS was nicely clear of the rest when runner-up at Carlisle 11 days ago and the way he finished off his race on that occasion, this step up in trip is sure to suit. He is very much the one to beat, for all The Bravest is open to improvement as a 3-y-o in receipt of a healthy age allowance. Melanamix is another to consider.

  1. STEINKRAUS (IRE)
  2. THE BRAVEST (GER)
  3. MELANAMIX (IRE)
