Both First Avenue and Right Step were disappointing, perhaps the hoped for softer ground that didn’t materialise, didn’t help their cause.

Confessional and Judge & Jury, didn’t perform up to scratch in the big sprint, with what looks a group horse winning that. Duke might be worth a look as an ante post bet in a 5f group 1 this summer. That was impressive.

We came closest when Rex Imperator just got tagged close home when unconsidered in the market at 28/1, to finish 2nd. There won’t be any value on him for a while after that run.
