Forecast

Van Beethoven (4/6), Fairyland (4/1), Land Force (8/1), Wartime Hero (10/1), Evasive Power (14/1), Recon Mission (16/1), Scotts Honor (33/1), Chestnut Express (50/1), Gee Rex (66/1)

Verdict
Aidan O'Brien could hold the key to this race and Ryan Moore chooses to ride VAN BEETHOVEN over stablemate Fairyland and Land Force. The son of Scat Daddy looks like an exciting prospect and the way he won last time out would suggest there's more to come. Both his stablemates are respected as well as the pair for Michael O'Callaghan who have both made winning debuts in recent weeks and Recon Mission is the preferred option from his runners.
  1. Van Beethoven
  2. Fairyland
  3. Recon Mission
