Group 3 winner over 1m2f on good ground here in May. Seemingly failed to stay the 1m4f trip in the Derby at Epsom (good) subsequently and one for the shortlist dropping in trip.

Betting

Forecast

Hazapour (8/13), Deauville (2/1), Brendan Brackan (13/2), Turret Rocks (14/1), Curly (14/1)

Verdict

HAZARPOUR can get his career back on track with a victory against his elders in this competitive looking Group 3 contest. The selection has already won at this level here and he is taken to get the better of Deauville who hasn't hit the heights of last years form in three starts this term. Third place can go the way of the mare Turret Rocks.
