Verdict

It may be a consolation affair but it's just as tricky to unravel as the main event. However, it seems strange to see the likes of GROWL not contesting the big one with such a series of fine sprint performances on his CV. He is admittedly on the decline but should give us a good run off his new mark of just 89 - he was rated 114 just over a couple of years ago. Alaadel's pleasing return after a break dating back to last October suggested he's ready to go close and Yousini is also of interest, looking best of the trio of three-year-olds as he's been contesting highly competitive events. Paddy Power and Royal Prospect also take the eye in a typically wide-open race.
