Verdict

Jim Bolger has won this twice in the past four years so newcomer Rapid Approach looks one to keep an eye on as he's entered in the top juvenile races this autumn. Magician is another with numerous big-race entries and the son of Galileo is certain to attract support while Johnny Murtagh will be keen to get a big run out of Little White Cloud, though the Dalakhani colt isn't certain to be the best of John Oxx' trio at this stage. MOUTEAB looks the safest option as he hasn't done much wrong in his two starts to date over this trip and his experience may just count in a race that should provide plenty of clues for the future.
