Verdict

Distingo sets the standard here on the form of his Plumpton win but didn't cover himself in glory at Fontwell next time and looks vulnerable under a penalty to potential improvers despite the introduction of a visor. It's hard to believe Grapevine and Sao aren't capable of considerably better than what they've served up so far but LORD DUVEEN may offer more value on the evidence of an eyecatching debut in a decent event at Exeter which has thrown up a few subsequent winners.
  1. Lord Duveen
  2. Sao
  3. Distingo
