Verdict

It's hard to know what to make of Mighty Yar, who made a winning debut when apparently unfancied at Lingfield in November. A son of Teofilo, there's no reason why he shouldn't be even better on Turf and he's related to several winners. PLEASURE BENT looks like a typical Luca Cumani slow burner and Kieren Fallon has been on board for all three starts. He just got up over a mile at Newbury last time and with the longer trip certain to suit he's handed the vote. Three Choirs ran very well on her comeback here in May but has been well beaten in both subsequent starts so Leitrim Pass looks more of a threat as he looked in need of further when narrowly beaten into third over a mile at Doncaster.
