Verdict

Water Garden showed some ability last season but a drop to the minimum trip may not be in his favour so it's difficult to get away from JUDICIARY. The former Godolphin inmate was beaten less than a length by Court In Session on his first start for Tim Vaughan at Cheltenham and the winner franked the form in emphatic fashion at Ascot on Saturday. Newcomer Jodawes and King's Colour have both won on the Flat but the latter was well beaten on his hurdles bow over C&D, while Platinum and bumper winner Shinko Moon must also improve on recent efforts.
