Verdict

Clafoutis should be thereabouts if reproducing latest form, and Shining Armour has fewer miles on the clock than a lot of these. However, ARAGOSTA is the pick of these. He has been a winner once over this CD and can confirm placings with Castletown and Little Prince, who were behind 53 days ago.
