Verdict

RUN AS ONE is strongly fancied to prevail. He has been a winner here and can confirm placings with Irish Rain, Kings Cup and Elusive Swann, who were behind last month. Humble Tune is capable of running well but the losing run is disheartening while Orus Apollo isn't out of it, and Princess Kesh may have her stamina stretched over this trip.
