Verdict

PATROCLUS justified strong support in going one better than on debut at Exeter just over 5 weeks ago, rallying well to lead late on having looked held by the runner-up late. This step back up in trip is sure to suit and there should be plenty more to come from Nicky Henderson's charge. Riggs rates as an obvious threat back after a couple of months off, ahead of Jeremy Pass.
