Verdict

MONTASSIB missed the whole of 2021 having won on debut at 2 yrs but he's quickly making up for lost time, supplementing his Wetherby reappearance victory with an impressive display on handicap debut at Goodwood 4 weeks ago. He promises to do better still and can put up a bold bid. Victoria Cup scorer Vafortino and low-mileage Tanmawwy are others to consider, as are Silent Film and George Boughey's Inver Park.

  1. MONTASSIB
  2. VAFORTINO (IRE)
