Verdict

The unexposed TOMMASO could have got off lightly with just a 2 lb nudge for Doncaster and is taken to follow up. The drop back to 2m is a possible positive for Hungry Tiger so George Bewley's in-form 8-y-o is a must for the shortlist. Court Jurado and Bestiarius are others to consider.

  1. TOMMASO (IRE)
  2. HUNGRY TIGER (IRE)
  3. COURT JURADO (IRE)
