Verdict

MAAREK is better than Listed class as he proved when landing the Group 2 Champions Sprint at Ascot in October. He wasn't at his best at York last time where he missed the break but his overall form should prove too much for these rivals. Cape Of Approval was over six lengths behind him at Naas in April but returned to winning ways over 6f here last month and looks the main threat. The three-year-old Zoola reappears after a long break but she's a progressive filly who should make her mark this summer.
