Cordouan (11/4), Simple Star (10/3), Crossford (9/2), Moraaheq (11/2), Ahlawi (6/1), Mashaan (10/1), Campeao (11/1), Villeurbanne (12/1), Emperor Spirit (14/1), Donizetti (50/1), Quest For Fun (66/1), Fort Mchenry (125/1), Loch Long (125/1), Heart Throb (150/1)
John Gosden's CORDOUAN showed enough on debut to think he's bound to win a race, and looks the one to beat. This isn't a penalty-kick mind, and newcomers Emperor Spirit, a stablemate of the selection, and Simple Star make plenty of appeal on paper and need monitoring in the betting.
