Verdict

Richard Hannon has trained the winner twice in the last six years, including 12 months ago. Beau Nash is his representative today and was only beaten a neck over this trip at Kempton earlier in the month. But receiving 3lb and less exposed, SIGNPOSTED may have his measure having easily beaten a good yardstick at Epsom following a promising debut. Xanthos won in the grade at Newcastle in July before being outclassed at York and is preferred to Leicester scorer Peacemaker of the others.
