Forecast

Tashweeq (4/1), Flaming Spear (6/1), Tabarrak (13/2), Steady Pace (7/1), Gossiping (8/1), Mutawathea (8/1), Robero (11/1), Above The Rest (12/1), Sir Dancealot (16/1), Donncha (16/1), Bossy Guest (16/1), Sutter County (20/1), Withernsea (25/1), Holiday Magic (25/1), Buckstay (25/1), Raising Sand (25/1), Boomshackerlacker (28/1), Tony Curtis (33/1), Von Blucher (33/1), Kadrizzi (33/1)

Verdict
STEADY PACE was impressive at Royal Ascot last time out and he gives the impression the extra furlong will see him in a better light. Tashweeq and Tabarrak both ran well in the Royal Hunt Cup last time out while Mutawathea ran well in this last year and returned to form with a fine effort at York last time. At bigger odds, Robero is an interesting runner, particularly if he gets to dictate matters from the front.
  1. Steady Pace
  2. Tashweeq
  3. Tabarrak
