Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

EMPORIO did little wrong in defeat in 3 autumn maidens and could be the type to progress plenty in 2021, his Classic entries boding well. Star Official wasn't far behind the very promising Santa Barbara on debut at the Curragh in September and may have a lot more to offer for new connections. Skilled Warrior is also respected back in trip.
