Verdict

Oh This Is Us put up a battling display when landing this Listed prize last season and is the one to beat this time round too. He has continued to prove a reliable servant in good-quality contests for the Hannon team and seems sure to be in the firing line once more. Salateen, the other course and distance winner on show, has something to find with the aforementioned but a chance is taken with BEAUTY FILLY, yet to shine outside handicap company. However, both Listed defeats arrived on heavy ground and she looked a much-improved filly when displaying a telling turn of foot to oblige at Goodwood latest. Vanbrugh and Marie's Diamond could also take a hand.
