Betting

Forecast

Lucius Tiberius (6/5), Gardens of Babylon (5/2), Escapability (4/1), Dawn Trouper (6/1), Rockabill (6/1), Baby Pink (11/1), Paperback Writer (16/1), Manzil (20/1), Ashqar (33/1), Acrux Cass (40/1), Persian Lion (66/1), Power Drive (66/1), All Saints Day (66/1), Altumanina (66/1), Lady Yasmin (100/1), Flying Focus (100/1)

Verdict

Gardens Of Babylon has not looked the most straightforward of types but is sure to be popular in first-time blinkers and the mount of Ryan Moore, while stablemate and improver LUCIUS TIBERIUS can land the spoils here following and eye-catching seasonal debut at Navan over this trip earlier this month running Broad Street to 1¾L and can be expected to progress in this company. Rockabill with newcomers Baby Pink and Dawn Trouper can battle for the minors in the closer.
  1. Lucius Tiberius
  2. Rockabill
  3. Dawn Trouper
