Verdict

Highland Castle has only run seven times and hasn't been seen since a short-head second to Barbican in an Ascot Listed event in September 2011. He's on the comeback trail as is Fort Belvedere, a winner at Longchamp for Andre Fabre in April of that year. Cardinal Walter was highly tried after landing a Haydock maiden last June and performed with credit but this should go to VOODOO PRINCE, who won a handicap over 1m2f here in August and ended his campaign with a close third to Art Scholar in the November Handicap.
