Verdict

The mark of Illustrious Prince still looks a bit high as he has failed to capitalise on a maiden success in handicaps of late and blinkers are applied for the first time as connections seek an improvement. The handicapper still puts Mishrif at the top of the weights and he may struggle to have an impact again and although he seeks a hat-trick Yankee Storm has never taken to the course and this deters us from siding with him. The vote goes to REGENERATION who has put in very good performances on the Polytrack here and he has never finished out of the places on the all-weather.
