In depth

Verdict

The betting at Lingfield suggested NATIONS PRIDE had improved from an earlier debut and the Godolphin colt duly landed the odds in good style. He should have the measure of these on today’s terms as he steps up in trip. Levitate finished third over today’s distance at Bath on his debut and is preferred to stablemate Togai while Army General will likely improve for this extra test of stamina though needs to if he’s to figure.
