Verdict
Godolphin won three races on the opening day of Royal Ascot and they have a fair chance of landing back-to-back renewals of this contest after Portage's impressive win in this last year. GK CHESTERTON has been going from strength to strength this year and he ought to go close if returning in the same form. Fastnet Tempest has been improving with each start but the mile may just stretch him. Abe Lincoln has an absence to overcome but he could prove even better on faster ground this year and he may have been saved for this race by his shrewd trainer.
  1. G K Chesterton
  2. Abe Lincoln
  3. Fastnet Tempest
