Forecasts

Midterm (3/1), Muntahaa (9/2), Chemical Charge (9/2), Dal Harraild (9/2), Crimean Tatar (5/1), Second Step (12/1), Dylan Mouth (12/1), Restorer (33/1), Quarterback (66/1)

Verdict

Midterm's effort at Chantilly last year in a Group 2 is an eye-catching piece of form, but he's not the most straightforward type and his best efforts have come with a little more cut than he looks likely to get here so there may be value to be found in the remainder of the field. CRIMEAN TATAR was very impressive last time out overcoming greenness at the start to scythe his way through the field and win with a touch up his sleeve. Chemical Charge is a little more exposed than some in here but he was impressive on his comeback run, winning at Doncaster and he may still have a little improvement in him. Any market support for multiple Group 1 winner Dylan Mouth would be interesting
  1. Crimean Tatar
  2. Chemical Charge
  3. Midterm
