Things have really clicked for PILLARS OF EARTH (best price 10/3) lately winning 3 of his last 4 and the way he stayed on to get in front over a mile and a quarter here last time suggests he could even improve again going back up to a mile and a half now. A 3lb rise looks perfectly reasonable and given he is bred to progress with time and experience being by Nathaniel I still don’t think we’ve seen the best of him. This is competitive but he looks progressive and 10/3 could look a decent price come post time. Pablo Prince left previous form behind when beaten just half a length into third here last time and if he builds on that going up in trip he should emerge as the main danger to the selection. Of the rest Lenny’s Spirit also has to enter calculations in first-time blinkers but the draw hasn’t been kind.
