Forecast

Gardens of Babylon (9/10), Khalaab (9/2), Change Of Velocity (9/2), Sir Erec (5/1), A Smooth Criminal (16/1), Song Of Dunes (20/1), Country Market (50/1)

Verdict
Aidan O'Brien won this two years ago and GARDENS OF BABYLON and Sir Eric give him solid claims of winning this year's renewal. Slight preference is for the former given the way he stayed on and a first-time tongue-tie may see him improve. Change Of Velocity has experience on his side and may prove best of the rest.
  1. Gardens of Babylon
  2. Sir Erec
  3. Change Of Velocity
