Verdict

The combination of a wind operation, tongue tie and switch to chasing resulted in a much-improved showing from IMPERIAL ESPRIT at Uttoxeter 3 weeks ago and he may well shrug off a 10 lb rise. Brooksway Fair has failed to yet deliver on his early promise but it's far too soon to write him off, with Kingston King also of interest.
