Verdict

It might be worth taking a chance on the veteran COURT MINSTREL after shaping like a return to form was imminent on his most recent start. Vive Le Roi looks well treated on his hat-trick bid while Melody Of Scotland is an unexposed filly who remains capable of better.
  1. Court Minstrel
  2. Vive Le Roi
  3. Melody Of Scotland
