Verdict

Those with racecourse experience have yet to threaten though it would be no surprise to see improved efforts from the likes of Elusive Artist, representing last year’s winning yard, Piselli Molli and Red Glory. But a chance is taken on a newcomer with a speculative vote going to LEGENDARY DAY, a half-brother to a couple of winners over 7f. Pull The Strings and Woke Media are both US-bred and related to winners with Hiroshi is another note.
