Verdict

FARRAAJ created such a big impression when beating Tell Dad at Sandown that he must be the selection, especially as the runner-up subsequently landed the lucrative Tattersalls Millions. Crius attempted to make all in a Haydock Listed contest and though easily brushed aside by Caledonian Spring it was still a decent effort. Jim Bolger doesn't waste journeys or entries so the presence of Zip Top, a debut winner at Leopardstown before well beaten on soft ground at the Curragh, is respected. Crusade badly needed his debut run at York but showed the benefit with a smooth maiden success at the Curragh and this Middle Park and Dewhurst entry should be the one to take advantage if the likely favourite flops his lines.
