Verdict

The last seven winners have all gone on to taste victory in Group 1 company. Subsequent Dewhurst winner War Command picked up last year's renewal and Ballydoyle are represented by War Front this time round. But the latter blotted his copybook somewhat when only third behind Kool Kompany at Naas last time and a line through the runner-up at Naas brings CAPPELLA SANSEVERO into the equation. He returned the impressive winner of a Listed contest at the Curragh last month and Ger Lyons' unbeaten colt gets the vote to continue his rapid progress and land this. Paul Hanagan prefers dual winner Adaay to Kasb but The Wow Signal beat a couple of subsequent winners by nine lengths at Ayr on his introduction and makes more appeal. Maiden winners Jungle Cat and Portamento are others to note with improvement expected from both while Ryan Moore takes over the reins on the progressive Justice Good.
