Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

FATHER OF JAZZ got off the mark on yard debut at the end of last month and he is difficult to oppose under a penalty. He could progress further and should be able to double up. Top Drop seems to be a different horse on polytrack compared to turf and he shouldn't be far away. Makeen may improve to play a part too.

Betting Forecast

11/8 Father Of Jazz, 5/1 Top Drop (Ire), 6/1 Makeen, 10/1 Vanity Affair (Ire), 16/1 Fiscal Prudence (Ire), 25/1 Adjourned, 300/1 French Minstrel (Ire)
