Verdict

GALLYHILL was not exactly impressive at Newbury, but the timefigure was good and there's surely plenty more to come from him now stepping up in trip. One True King folded tamely in the Lanzarote at Kempton, so Midnight River, for the bang in form Skeltons, is considered the main threat.

  1. GALLYHILL (IRE)
  2. MIDNIGHT RIVER
  3. ONE TRUE KING (IRE)
