    Verdict

    This is a tricky opener with Areweplayingout, Bank On Bertie and Geoffdaw shortlisted and the vote going to Geoffdaw. An 11,000 guineas son of Namid, Areweplayingout, a 9,800 guineas son of Bertolini, Bank On Bertie, Geoffdaw, an 11,000 guineas son of Vettori, the Kevin Ryan-trained Redbrick Girl, and another Mick Easterby-trained runner, Stevie Smurnoff, are all ones that catch the eye on breeding in a race that is hard to assess, really. Maybe the betting will provide some clues for you but, without that, we will give the vote to Geoffdaw.
