Betting

Forecast

Mirage Dancer (2/1), Young Rascal (5/2), Desert Encounter (4/1), Extra Elusive (8/1), Desert Skyline (9/1), Euginio (20/1), Wingingit (33/1)

Verdict

MIRAGE DANCER looks an improving sort and he is taken to follow up last months Goodwood victory with success in this Group 3 contest. The selection hails from a top yard and can get the better of three-year-old Young Rascal who impressed in winning a Derby trial back in the spring. Last years winner Desert Encounter can finish third this time around.
