Verdict

Beyond Thankful couldn't handle Group 3 class here last time though thatwas over 7f and he probably needs this trip. Imperial Concorde started odds-on for his debut at Gowran in May and scrambled home from that goodyardstick Einstein's Folly. He hasn't raced since but there's more to come from him as there is from TWILIGHT ZONE. Aidan O'Brien's colt showed the benefit of his opening run by easily landing a Cork maiden and though stepping up markedly in class gives the impression it won't be a concern. He gets the vote as Orgilgo Bay and Cest Notre Gris are closely matched though the latter appeared to find some improvement behind Battle Of Marengo at the Curragh.
