Verdict

This is likely to take some getting in the conditions and experience should play a part. Sacchoandvanzetti has been staying on over a mile on heavy ground so everything is in place for another big run but the Galileo colt SOUTH PACIFIC may have his measure. He couldn't get close to stable companion Western Australia over 7f at Galway but this should be his trip and his three runs to date have been on fast ground. Edessann was just behind the latter here in August and as that was his debut he should have come on enough to get even closer but Elite Trooper Grey was beaten 14 lengths when runner-up at Galway. Top Line Tommy is the fourth foal of a mare who has produced winners with her first three to race and could prove best of the newcomers.
