29-2OR:
20/1

Has shown ability in all three of his starts and gave the impression he may be capable of more improvement up in trip at Sandown last time. More needed but progress likely.

Didn't need to improve to get his head back in front at Musselburgh last time. Worth another crack at this level but will need to improve.

29-2OR:
7/2

Took a sizable step forward on his third start when winning comfortably in a maiden. Fascinating contender and the step up in trip is another source for improvement.

Maiden winner at the Curragh and bounced back from a below par effort with a respectable second here last time in Group 2 class. Gives the impression he will appreciate the step up in trip and should appreciate the drop in class.

29-2OR: BF
11/4

Winner on debut but disappointed at odds-on at Haydock last time. Has been slowly away on both his starts but he's beautifully bred and these connections unlikely to step him up to this level without good cause.

Has won two of her five starts. Not disgraced last time out in a competitive handicap but more exposed than several in here and up against some smart prospects.

Forecast

Sydney Opera House (11/8), Waldstern (11/4), Norway (7/2), Nate The Great (9/1), I'll Have Another (12/1), You Never Can Tell (16/1), Flying Dragon (20/1)

Verdict

Aidan O'Brien won this last year with recent St Leger winner Kew Gardens and his two prospects in this look like fascinating contenders. Preference is for the son of Australia, SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE after a solid effort in Group 2 class last time and with the emphasis on stamina here, he could be hard to beat. The less exposed stablemate Norway is an obvious threat while Waldstern is expected to leave a below par effort at Haydock behind here.
