Verdict

Bordini was snapped up after a promising placed effort in a point at Maralin in March and will know his job. Rock Of Glenstal came up against useful opposition in his two starts in January and looked just in need of the run on his reappearance earlier this month. BEAU ET SUBLIME made the long odds-on Utmost Zeal pull out all the stops on his return to action here last month. A quartet of well connected newcomers make this a strong looking bumper and the market should be followed to gauge their chances.
