Verdict

Pulpitarian and Drunken Counsel represent quality yards but have yet to deliver form of a corresponding level but maybe both will progress with time. Super Collider is usually partnered by this conditional rider and looks on a upward curve this term, scoring bravely last time when rallying to inch out City Line by the minimum margin. The latter is weighted to take revenge at the revised weights but they are hard to separate and POLITENESS, seeking a three-timer, is preferred. Rose Dobbin's gelding impressed over course and distance last time and seems to have improved greatly for the better ground. He can defy a 12lb rise in the weights for that latest success.
