Verdict

Great Hall, Gawdawpalin and Niblawi clashed here in a tactical race on Shergar Cup day when the former got first run on his rivals. On these terms and in what ought to be a more truly run affair, a different outcome has to be considered a real possibility. ALQAMAR showed some decent form last year and accordingly made short work of his rivals on his handicap debut. A fair run in the Queen's Vase leaves him on a viable mark and the rider's record for the stable suggests he is worth following.
  1. Alqamar
  2. Niblawi
  3. Gawdawpalin
