Verdict

A case can be made for lots of these, but speedy front-runner TEES SPIRIT has returned much improved this term and remains handily weighted so is taken to complete his hat-trick. Paul Midgley has a good reord in the Dash and his Mid Winster seems sure to have a say on the back of her emphatic Catterick success. Stone of Destiny, an unlucky third 12 months ago, and the thriving duo Fine Wine and Justanotherbottle all figure on the shortlist too.

  1. TEES SPIRIT
  2. MID WINSTER
  3. STONE OF DESTINY
