Verdict

NOBLE MISSION has come up against the progressive Universal in both starts this year but this is easier. The Warren Place colt landed a Group 3 race over track and trip last summer and can return to winning ways in this company. A winning three-year-old in France, Genzy has yet to win a race for current connections but is usually thereabouts and Bana Wu still has something to prove over today's longer distance. Andrew Balding's charge finished well ahead of Boonga Roogeta at Newmarket last time and the latter had earlier beaten subsequent winner Moment In Time.
