Forecast

Cliffs Of Moher (7/4), Barney Roy (9/4), Eminent (4/1), Ulysses (8/1), Decorated Knight (10/1), Lightning Spear (25/1), Salouen (33/1), Desert Encounter (50/1), Taj Mahal (50/1)

Verdict
BARNEY ROY could be hard to beat if he stays this trip. He's won three of his four starts and he wasn't beaten far in the 2,000 Guineas by Churchill. Decorated Knight looks to have a solid each-way chance and he's not ruled out in landing his third Group 1 of the season. Cliffs Of Moher may be best of the rest and he has been given time to recover from his Derby effort.
  1. Barney Roy
  2. Decorated Knight
  3. Cliffs Of Moher
