Runner-up in the German 2000 Guineas before disappointing in Royal Ascot Group 3 last time on very quick ground. Entitled to be winning this.

Won here last month over 1m1f on just second start, should continue progressing but may struggle to contain Fajjaj in this contest.

80/1

Promise in a couple of maidens in Ireland in May before switching to this yard, should be off the mark soon but seems the least likely winner amongst this trio on what we've seen to date.

Betting

Forecast

Fajjaj (1/7), Universal Gleam (6/1), Indie Groove (80/1)

Verdict

FAJJAJ found the Group 3 Hampton Court Stakes at Royal Ascot too hot last time but connections obviously felt he was worth a try in that company and the German 2000 Guineas second ought to be winning this. Universal Gleam won here on his second start and can improve again now to complete the forecast ahead of Indie Groove, who has shown some ability in Irish maidens.
