Verdict

A fascinating affair with Godolphin's Prince Bishop and Debussy well clear on official ratings but having questions to answer. The former has strong form in his native France and performed creditably on two runs for his new owners at Meydan in early spring. However, he disappointed badly on his return at Windsor, while Debussy is impossible to evaluate accurately having spent the year undertaking pacemaking duties for more illustrious stablemates. Connections of Colour Vision and Zennor are rightly hunting black type which leaves BERLING and Kiama Bay. Both are in good order and have winning form at the track but it's John Dunlop's four-year-old who gets a narrow vote as his overall profile is slightly more progressive.
