Verdict

None of these are easily dismissed. Allnecessaryforce will have come on for his return at Doncaster and ran well in Listed company last season, while course winner Red Runaway has a shout stepping up in trip. Mark Johnston complicates matters by running winning debutant Dorfman and booking William Buick for stablemate Blue Wave. But rather than speculate on which one of that pair will come out on top, the vote goes to MAGICAL KINGDOM. Marco Botti's Coolmore-owned colt beat a couple of subsequent winners when scoring over 1m3f here on his introduction in January and is taken to follow up.
