Race Verdict

KIRTHILL signed off in 2011 with a fast-ground victory at Newbury but the pick of his earlier form came with cut in the ground and he looks just the type to keep improving as a four-year-old. Top-weight will not be easy to overcome but he could turn out to be better than a handicapper. Flag Officer also has the potential to go far and he's temptingly weighted judged on an excellent second to Sea Moon over this C&D on his most recent run last June. The subsequent layoff is a slight concern, however, and perhaps the race-fit Right Step will prove more of a threat.

Selection: Kirthill        Danger:         Alternative: Flag Officer
