Forecast

Churchill (1/2), Barney Roy (5/2), Thunder Snow (6/1), Lancaster Bomber (12/1), Rivet (16/1), Forest Ranger (33/1), Peace Envoy (33/1), Mr Scaramanga (66/1)

Verdict
Godolphin recruits Barney Roy and Thunder Snow have their work cut out to turn the form around with CHURCHILL from their most recent outings. The aforementioned Richard Hannon runner may improve for the switch to this course and the trainer has a fine record of over 25% when teaming up with this jockey but it's dual Guineas winner Churchill who will prove tough to beat in his bid for a fifth consecutive Group 1 win.
  1. Churchill
  2. Barney Roy
