Verdict

Colonel Whitehead is creeping steadily closer though recent placed efforts have been over the minimum trip while Powertrain never threatened when third at Windsor, though the winner has subsequently landed a handicap. ROBERT GUISCARD ran out of steam in the closing stages at Yarmouth on his debut having still been in contention entering the final furlong. Mark Johnston’s colt can go close with normal progress and gets the vote. Of the newcomers. Premier Power cost 300,000gns as the first foal of a Listed winner while Rondo is related to no less than six winners and preferred to More Than A Prince.
