      Verdict

      Well beaten when third in the Lockinge on his reappearance, BRETON ROCK is penalised for winning a Group 2 over 7f at Doncaster last term. But he still gets the nod despite Growl coming out best at the weights given that the latter has something to prove over today’s distance. Jallota won a Group 3 at Chantilly over 7f last season and has a shout, having finished in front of Mitchum Swagger when placed at Sandown on his reappearance, while Absolutely So finished ahead of So Beloved when going close in Listed company over track and trip last month.
