Betting Breakdown

Tote Win:€1.50Pl:€1.02, €2.80EX:€8.20SF:€7.63

Forecasts

Death Duty (5/6), Augusta Kate (11/4), Turcagua (7/1), Blood Crazed Tiger (11/1), Stand Up And Fight (16/1), Bel Ami De Sivola (20/1)

Verdict

A field of six, where most are thriving ahead of this Grade One contest but DEATH DUTY is tough to oppose. He has looked impressive in three starts this term and can continue his ascent up the ranks at the main expense of the exciting mare Augusta Kate, who did little wrong in winning first time over timber. Blood Crazed Tiger should also be competitive while Bel Ami De Sivola continues to improve. 1. Death Duty 2. Augusta Kate 3. Blood Crazed Tiger
