Verdict

MASAI has missed a few opportunities in recent weeks so should be ready for this and though needing to justify his high rating looks the type to have a good second season so gets the verdict. Norville ran his best race for a very long time on his reappearance at the Curragh and if in that kind of mood would definitely get into the frame. Wexford Opera is very consistent in this sort of company and with his yard still going strongly he's on the shortlist while Arctic has been taking on much better class since landing a handicap at Navan in 2012, his last success, and he's now back on that mark.
