Verdict

NEVER BACK DOWN is well treated and is worth chancing on the back of his never-nearer fourth over C&D. Jackmel scraped home here recently but he still warrants respect in his hat-trick bid, while Scherzando is another one in fine heart at present, so they're both dangers.

  1. NEVER BACK DOWN (IRE)
  2. JACKMEL (IRE)
  3. SCHERZANDO
