Verdict

NAHAARR put a Newbury event to bed in good style before underperforming as favourite faced with a quick turnaround in the Stewards' Cup but, now granted more of a break, he can resume progress and put up a bold bid to land his first big prize. Mr Lupton and Stone of Destiny both arrive on the back of success in competitive events, so they're regarded as the chief threats.

  1. NAHAARR (IRE)
  2. MR LUPTON (IRE)
  3. STONE OF DESTINY
