Verdict

No depth at all to this opening contest and it looks to boil down to a straightforward contest between MIZEN MASTER and Boy In A Bentley . The former has to give a fair amount of weight away here but looks to be capable of that with the attitude of the latter in question here and the long run-in could prove a challenge for his rider. Of the others Strong Resemblance just edges the vote for the minor placing ahead of Dubh Des Champs who may well yet improve for his new yard.
