Verdict

THE WHIPMASTER has simply looked an all-round improved model this term, taking the rise in class in his stride and overcoming a pace bias to boot when completing the 4-timer with minimum fuss at Windsor 4 weeks ago. With the probability of more to come at this sort of trip, he earns the vote to continue the good work, with Commonsensical rating the chief threat. Juan de Montalban can also feature eased back down in trip.

  1. THE WHIPMASTER (IRE)
  2. COMMONSENSICAL
  3. JUAN DE MONTALBAN (IRE)
