Verdict

Chasing will be the game of plenty of these in the future in a race that features some progressive and likeable types. The Albert Bartlett form is well represented by the principals with the fourth from that race – Constantine Bay again facing THE WORLDS END who fell two out when moving well having travelled strongly. Those two very much have the best form in the race with the jury still out on West Approach who ran a disappointing race last time out. It's then a case of looking at the runners with potential and that would bring Beyond Conceit, Debece and Keeper Hill into the equation. The first-named of that trio was a classy performer on the Flat and could well enjoy this trip while Debece would have a bit to do on his form so far but did demolish a handicap field last time out and has plenty of potential at this trip.
  1. The Worlds End
  2. Beyond Conceit
  3. Debece
