Verdict

This is a tight one to call but the suggestion is UNIVERSAL LOVE who is going for a second distance success. Willow Express has produced plenty of good efforts, this trip could be a bit far for Al Bayreg, and Officer In Command is an interesting runner although the long losing run is a concern.
