Betting

Forecast

Lost Treasure (11/4), Equilateral (3/1), Hit The Bid (4/1), Encore d'Or (5/1), Shumookhi (9/1), All The King's Men (10/1), Life of Riley (16/1), Fantasy (25/1), Amthaal (50/1)

Verdict

The runs of HIT THE BID in Listed and Group 1 company at Tipperary and the Curragh when behind Havana Grey and Blue Uluru prove the Exceed And Excel colt can mix it with the best in this Group and can see off the attentions of Lost Treasure and Shumookhi here. Only 2½L behind Mr Lupton at Newbury latest, Equilateral is capable of hitting the frame.
