Betting

Forecast

Irish Roe (3/1), Flying Tiger (4/1), Amour de Nuit (9/2), Percy Street (5/1), Mohaayed (7/1), William Of Orange (8/1), Star Foot (20/1), Always Resolute (25/1), Minellaforleisure (50/1)

Verdict
Flying Tiger may have been slightly flattered by the margin of defeat behind Buveur D'Air in the Fighting Fifth, but that is nonetheless a Grade 1 event and he should make a good fist of trying to successfully concede weight all around here. Ideally, however, he wants some cut in the ground and preference is therefore for AMOUR DE NUIT, who made a decent reappearance at Newbury and can come on for that. Irish Roe and William Of Orange both have claims and should not be far apart, while Mohaayed has a bit to prove after his latest effort.
  1. Amour de Nuit
  2. Flying Tiger
  3. Irish Roe
