Verdict

Krypton Factor crowned a brilliant 2012 campaign by taking this from the classy Rocket Man. He hasn't been in that kind of form this campaign and was behind MENTAL and Kavanagh in a Group 3 last month. The winner, who was having his first start on an artificial surface after a superb career on Turf in Australia, was conceding 5lb all round for his Group 1 victory at Flemington in November and is given the vote. Reynaldothewizard also beat Krypton Factor last time and certainly deserves his place in this line-up. Gordon Lord Byron had a nice pipe-opener at Dundalk but his Prix Foret victory was over 7f on heavy ground and a few of these look too speedy. USA champion sprinter Trinniberg, a Dirt specialist who surprisingly has never run on a synthetic surface, gained a shock victory in the Breeders' Cup Sprint though it didn't look a fluke. Frederick Engels has been showing great pace in Hong Kong so is another to note.
