The Sportsman's Verdict
Since stamping himself as a Classic contender with his Derrinstown triumph on last year's card, HAZAPOUR hasn't managed to get his head in front again, though he has kept excellent company and it may be this drop in distance, combined with the easier assignment, can have the desired effect. Verbal Dexterity has had his issues since landing the 2017 National Stakes and has ground to make up on Zihba from their recent Heritage Stakes clash. Psychedelic Funk has claims on his best efforts, but the three-year-olds look up against it.
