8 Paraiba(L) 1-3-1 Santiago Donk 121 8-1

Hoppsey notched sizzling final fraction when a visually impressive winner in last; handles class jump in current form. British Banker has fired bullets since game placing at GP in March; dangerous. Silver King can prove a tough customer on a soft lead; very interesting. Piazza Di Spagna tallied two of her three lifetime wins on Belmont sod; worth long look at long price.
