Verdict

Rod Millman has won this twice in recent years so Master Carpenter has to be greatly respected. A debut winner at Leicester, he stepped up in grade to finish a good third behind Anticipated and Justice Day at Ascot and this extra furlong is in his favour. The winner's trainer, Richard Hannon, is represented by MALACHIM MIST, behind Justice Day on his Newbury debut but much improved when making all at Goodwood. He's a nice prospect and looks the one to be on. Sleepy Joe made a bright start on fast ground at Leicester and it's never a problem to ignore a poor run at Chester though he did finish a long way behind Intense Feeling. Fire Fighting, from the first crop of Irish Derby winner Soldier Of Fortune out of a winning miler, is one to note for the future.
