Verdict

The speed-favouring track at Southwell hardly looked ideal for EAU TOP last month, yet to be asked for his effort when making a bad mistake 4 out. He's well worth another chance and is taken to gain his first victory in first-time cheekpieces. Mill Race King was running well when departing on his chase/handicap bow earlier this month so rates as the main threat, ahead of Eagle de Guye.

  1. EAU TOP (FR)
  2. MILL RACE KING (IRE)
  3. EAGLE DE GUYE (FR)
