Betting

Forecast

Frontiersman (9/2), Raheen House (5/1), Best Solution (6/1), Mountain Bell (7/1), What About Carlo (8/1), Architecture (8/1), Danehill Kodiac (11/1), Natavia (12/1), Western Hymn (12/1), Ayrad (25/1), Across The Stars (33/1)

Verdict
Godolphin pair Frontiersman and Best Solution have strong form claims, but both might prefer better ground and the value choice may be WESTERN HYMN, who has plenty of good form to his credit at this level, acts on soft going and could improve for first-time blinkers. Danehill Kodiac is an obvious threat after his good win at Ascot, while Architecture will be happier returned to this trip.
  1. Western Hymn
  2. Danehill Kodiac
  3. Frontiersman
