Verdict

Both SUPREME ASSET and Un Guet Apens have been competing at a higher level. There doesn't appear to be much between the pair on overall form but the former is the least exposed and therefore probably has the greater scope for further progress. With McCoy doing the steering, he gets the nod. Little Glenshee can't be ignored with her mares' allowance but Rosquero is making his chasing debut at the age of nine and was disappointing over hurdles here last month. Heliopsis will surely need this run after a two-year break.
