Verdict

Mister Universum has taken time to discover something approaching his best but recent efforts indicate he's ready to strike. He is finding winning difficult though and has useful rivals on his case here. The Sweeney obliged in style over course and distance in May and should have more to offer despite a 6lb rise and Tamarillo Grove seems rejuvenated at the age of 12. However, he seems to have saved his resurgence for his beloved Newton Abbot and therefore a chance is taken with REALLY SUPER. Only a 5-y-o, he progressed well last term, went close on the Flat in April and should prove suited by conditions. Hopefully, she's ready after a short absence.
