Verdict

Iconic Sunset was only beaten a short-head over this trip at Haydock in June but didn’t look an easy ride when again finding one too good at Beverley last time. We’ll take a chance on NEVERBEEN TO PARIS as Michael Bell’s Champs Elysees colt looked in need of the run on his debut at Chelmsford but was staying on nicely once the penny dropped. Mick Channon’s juveniles are often worth noting here but Trumps Up was a cheap purchase and Surfa Rosa never threatened in an ordinary contest at Chepstow last month.
