Forecast

Deauville (6/4), Robin Of Navan (4/1), Euginio (7/1), Frankuus (7/1), Master The World (15/2), Forest Ranger (8/1), What About Carlo (10/1), Battle Of Marathon (20/1), Cap'n (250/1)

Verdict
Robin Of Navan would have to be of interest if there's any rainfall but given the forecast is dry, DEAUVILLE could be hard to beat if returning in the same form that saw him place in a pair of Group 1 races last season. He was a shade disappointing in the Hong Kong Cup last time out but he could be hard to beat back in calmer waters with cheekpieces going back on for the first time since he was only narrowly defeated at Royal Ascot. Frankuus is a danger to all if he can cope with this step back in trip while Forest Ranger held his form well throughout most of last year.
  1. Deauville
  2. Robin Of Navan
  3. Frankuus
