Verdict

Strictly on form to form to hand this contest should be a straight match between ESPRIT DE LUMIERE and his last time out conqueror Lyrical Attraction. The selection would have almost certainly would have won in a few more strides here at this venue earlier in the month and the step up in trip should work in his favour. The disappointing Tabot/Smith and Magnier-owned Whitsunday Islands in first time blinkers can pick up prize money.
