Verdict

STORYBOARD made his way to Satish Seemar's yard via France where had one run for Andre Fabre as a two-year-old. He started out with an emphatic victory in a course and distance maiden a month ago where he slammed today's rival Mears by 5l. The runner-up showed the value of the form when stepping up in trip and comfortably landing a maiden though he's only 1lb better off and may have to settle for a place. Strong Chemistry scored over 7f at Jebel Ali but couldn't get close to Pirates's Cove in a better race over 6f but Philosopher ran better than his form figure suggests on Turf last time and his two victories in France were gained on the all-weather.
