Verdict
A fiendishly difficult contest this but the vote goes to the relatively unexposed four-year-old WALKING ON GLASS who looked well worth a go at 3m when running on over 2m4f latest having won the time before over 2m5f. Fellow four-year-old Ellipsism is one of two live contenders for Joseph O'Brien and although stable jockey JJ Slevin is aboard Chess Grand Master the younger horse makes the most appeal after winning well last time out.
  1. Walking On Glass
  2. Ellipsism
  3. Chess Grand Master
