Verdict

This race lacks any depth and should concern Wesbrook Bertie and CHRISTOPHER WOOD. The former was impressive in beating a stable companion who has won since over C&D on Boxing Day, but there were signs of temperament and an inclination to over-race last time. As a result he may find the concession of 7lb to the selection beyond him, particularly given the powerful yard and the fact they went to 80,000 gns to purchase this dual Flat winner who handles soft ground.
  1. Christopher Wood
  2. Westbrook Bertie
  3. Flaminger
