Verdict

Front-runner Workbench was let down by his jumping here last month but still finished ahead of Sands Cove, though his yard has just lost a bit of momentum lately. SOUND INVESTMENT never figured on his chasing bow at Doncaster and needs to settle better but he doesn't look badly handicapped and may have more scope than most of these. Tornado In Milan has been disappointing so far over the larger obstacles and Noche De Reyes and Itsuptoyou may need more time.
