Verdict

FINJAAN was well backed in the morning before drifting a little on course, but it was the early money that proved to be spot on as the Royal Applause colt held on well from the fast-finishing Bonnie Charlie. The winner tracked the lightning-quick pace set by Rievaulx World who jumped like a greyhound from trap one. Finjaan was always travelling within himself, though, hit the front a furlong out, and rallied again once Bonnie Charlie laid down his challenge. Six furlongs looks well within the compass of the winner, and the runner-up who flew home. Jargelle ran a good race and wasn't far away in third. Rievaulx World showed plenty of early dash and looks a sprinter all over, while Royal Ascot winner Flashmans Papers was outpaced.
