Verdict

RUSSIAN RULER is clearly well thought of and should have plenty more to offer this term, particularly over this longer trip. He can open his account over hurdles. Heezer Geezer and Egbert head the list of dangers in what should prove an informative contest.

  1. RUSSIAN RULER (IRE)
  2. HEEZER GEEZER (FR)
  3. EGBERT
