Verdict

BAGUE D'OR shaped like a horse who is still on a good mark when going down only to another progressive type at Doncaster 12 weeks ago and is the one to beat with his pedigree suggesting this longer trip should be within range. Fellow 3-y-os Saligo Bay and Geremia can give him most to think about.

  1. BAGUE D'OR (IRE)

  3. GEREMIA (IRE)
