Verdict

An ultra-competitive closer to the Sky Bet Ebor Festival but it's hard to ignore the claims of INJAZATI. He was unable to justify strong market support on reappearance in April, and it's taken some time to get him back to the track but he was highly progressive last year so he gets the verdict to resume winning ways. Phantom Flight hasn't yet shown all he can so he may emerge as the main danger for his up-and-coming trainer, with recent C&D winner Spirit Dancer another fancied to go well.

  1. INJAZATI (IRE)
  2. PHANTOM FLIGHT
  3. SPIRIT DANCER
