The Sportsman's Verdict
ICE AGE won this race 12 months ago off the same mark and he appeared to be coming back to form when finishing sixth in a competitive contest at Ripon recently. He needs to take another step forward but the six-yea-rold still merits the utmost respect. The unbeaten Habub faces the toughest task of his short career to date but he should not be discounted, while Embour and Walk On Walter are others to consider.
