Verdict

CHESTNUT BOMBER looks set for a big run. He is a distance winner and the form of his race latest is working out well. American Biscuit has seen his limitations exposed while the otherwise interesting Galladorn has a stamina query to answer at this trip, and Volare E Mambo is one to be feared.
