Saisons D'or arguably sets the standard in this contest but, while he should be in the mix, it would not be the biggest of surprises to see something improve past him. It was not the strongest of Haydock maidens that WRENTHORPE finished second in on his debut but that performance did suggest that he can win a race of this nature. Nicklaus has yet to live up to his expensive price tag but it is far too soon to be writing him off.
NICKLAUS did better with his debut under his belt without making the major leap expected when midfield at Kempton 3 weeks ago.
