Verdict

GREAT SHOT looked far from the finished article when scoring on his reappearance at Lingfield. He's a well-bred individual who comes from a family that tend to improve with age and he may well be good enough to follow up here. Sinfonico is another with scope while it could be worth forgiving stablemate Shewalksinbeauty's run at Goodwood in September, though she's yet to prove she stays this far. The majority of Malice Or Mischief's wins have come in claimers and Royal Opera's two runs this year suggest he hasn't trained on.
