Verdict

It's slightly surprising to see MOT A MOT kept to 2m given his strength at the finish when successful at Worcester 3 weeks ago but regardless he is open to plenty of progress and can defy a penalty. Hermes Boy is an obvious threat, while American Gerry's bumper form reads pretty well.

  1. MOT A MOT (FR)
  2. HERMES BOY (FR)
  3. AMERICAN GERRY (IRE)
