Verdict

Beverley winner Sed Maarib is on an upward curve and definitely one for the shortlist. Bastogne and Ardbraccan both finished close up in a hot nursery at Goodwood in July with the latter since tackling Group 3 company at Newmarket. Jadhlaan has yet to run a bad race but is conceding weight all round upped in trip. Implore has improved since finishing fifth behind Atrium at Ascot and Modern Games beat a nice prospect at HQ before failing to land the odds under a penalty at Leicester. BULLET FORCE has taken a while to grow into his frame but comfortably saw off Monday’s Brighton winner Devasboy last time at Musselburgh and there should be plenty more to come.
