Verdict

Giant Sequoia is potentially very well treated and the market should be monitored closely in his case, despite a number of poor efforts this term. Satwa Ballerina is only a plater nowadays while Barbirolli looks to be on a downward curve and none of the three-year-olds make particular appeal, though Vexillum will probably be staying on when others have cried enough. AKULA has never won on the Flat but has kept very good company over hurdles over the last couple of years and may well be good enough to land an ordinary finale, despite racing for the first time since April.
