Verdict

A fiercely competitive Victoria Cup. ACQUITTED really caught the eye when second in Doncaster's Spring Mile and Hugo Palmer's strong traveller looks sure to have a big say over this stiff 7f trip. Sir Mark Prescott's Sunset Breeze went from strength to strength last term and appeals as the sort to go on again so is feared most on his return, with River Nymph and Fox Champion 2 more to consider.

  1. ACQUITTED (IRE)
  2. SUNSET BREEZE
  3. RIVER NYMPH
