Verdict

Bags Groove and JENKINS (NAP) are both potentially high-class recruits from the bumper ranks. The pair are worth following this season but the latter gets the nod on this occasion as he's from the yard that won this last year with the classy Buveur D'air and three of the six previous renewals. Captain Forez was second at Auteuil in April on his hurdling debut and should also win races. Boudry, Hidden Cargo and Capsy De Mee are also worth monitoring.
