The Sportsman's Verdict
John Gosden won this 12 months ago and could do so again with another runner representing Khalid Abdullah, GANTIER. The Frankel gelding has looked a useful prospect so far, finishing only once outside the first three home, and can build on his first handicap win last time off a 4lb higher mark. Ballylemon is open to improvement up in trip following his Wolverhampton second last month, while Prejudice is another to keep an eye on up in distance on his first outing for David Simcock. Sash and The Pink'n are others who make each-way appeal.
