Verdict

A number of last time out winners in the line up with trainers no doubt thinking of recording further success and then escaping a penalty for the future. Born To Please and What A Welcome have some question marks against their names on a fast racing surface, whilst Ashazuri isn't a bona-fide 1m2f horse. Therefore, in a contest where none of the others make any significant appeal, the returning stable debutante TRIPARTITE is a token selection. He cost 45,000 gns from Jeremy Gask in July 2017 and generally goes well over this trip on quick ground.
  1. Tripartite
  2. What A Welcome
