Verdict

MOSCATO looks a typical Sir Mark Prescott project. He showed little as a juvenile but will have strengthened over the winter and now tackles a trip more in line with his breeding being out of a mare who won over 1m4f and a half-brother to a stayer. Roman Riches and Bishop Wulstan both won last time, the latter over course and distance, and should ensure the selection doesn't have things all his own way. Passionate Affair's victory came in a seller but Graphene shouldn't be far away and Statsminister has scope and is proven over track and trip, unlike Danz Star.
