Forecast

Tadleel (2/1), Al Ozzdi (7/2), Groveman (4/1), Strategic (5/1), Fenagh (6/1), General Marius (11/1), Couldn't Could She (20/1), Reverberation (25/1), Puramente (40/1)

Verdict
Plenty of these horses look likely potential improvers, not least the slow learning Strategic and General Marius. However, TADLEEL has winning form in the book, and although penalised accordingly should make a bold bid to follow up his narrow Newmarket July success.
  1. Tadleel
  2. Strategic
  3. General Marius
