Verdict

Impossible to recommend anything with any level of confidence as all five have massive question marks against them. Chandler Jack has shown nothing to date and Share The Dosh has failed to trouble the judge in four bumper starts. Moscow Me is very lightly-raced between the flags in recent seasons and Snowball was pulled up on reappearance. All of which leaves PORTOFINO WASP, a son of Milan. The O'Neill charge was held up when never of terms on his debut when beaten 30 lengths by previous winners Thunder Sheik and Lyssio. However, he may be the only one with any scope and receives the most tentative of votes.
