Verdict

Things haven't exactly gone to plan for MEASURING TIME so far this year but he was placed in Group 3 races at Sandown and Lingfield in the spring and finished comfortably ahead of Picture Editor over this trip on similar ground at Newmarket last autumn. He could be the one to beat as Vesuve hasn't beat a horse home in two runs this term though the latter's stablemate, Spring Of Fame, may have needed his run at Newbury last month and finished ahead of Al Shemali in Dubai in the spring. The others are all useful on their day but were well beaten in handicap company last time.
