Verdict

STEEL PRINCE may have found his stamina stretched beyond the optimum last time out at Navan. He'd previously shaped with promise in two starts, including over this C&D and is taken to deliver on that potential now handicapping for the first time. In truth, it is hard to rule out any of this sextet with confidence. World War gets blinkers added having run well over a longer trip in Listed class latest while What Wonders Weave scored over shorter at Hamilton in a maiden and could have more to offer in this sphere. Druids Cross must ship weight to all five rivals while Modern Approach must bounce back from a poor show last time but does represent an in-form Bolger team.
