Verdict

RUMOROSO has clearly had his share of problems to have been off the track since finishing runner-up in France back in 2018, but he couldn't be in better hands and this doesn't look a strong race. Golf Marin will continue to progress and is second choice.

  1. RUMOROSO
  2. GOLF MARIN (FR)
  3. SUMMER TIDE (IRE)
