Verdict

This is tougher than the conditions race won by Set The Trend at Haydock last time but Fulbright went close on his first start in Listed company when finding only Thistle Bird too good at the same track. Gabrial has been aimed high since winning a handicap back in May, including when beaten six lengths in a Group 3 contest last month, and he looks likely to find TAZAHUM too good here. The latter scored at Newmarket before finishing a creditable third to the higher-rated pair Dubai Prince and Side Glance in the Strensall Stakes at York and a similar effort should be enough to come out best today. Theladyinquestion has plenty to find in this company and is hard to fancy.
