Verdict

Noor Zabeel, third behind Foxtrot India at Goodwood, and Come On Blue Chip, who occupied the same position behind the impressive Commisar at Newmarket, are the best of those with experience but this could go to a newcomer. Commisar's trainer Paul Cole has regularly sent his best juveniles to the Knavesmire and Overpowered, a son of the very speedy Choisir, may be another. He should go well but preference is just for GIORGIO'S DRAGON, who has pace throughout his pedigree and was an expensive purchase by Sir Robert Ogden in August. Another who should have plenty of speed is Barolo Top, a half-brother to the smart Kingsgate Prince.
