Forecast

Without Parole (9/4), U S Navy Flag (5/1), Tip Two Win (11/2), Romanised (6/1), Gustav Klimt (8/1), Wootton (8/1), Gabr (20/1), Threeandfourpence (20/1), Chilean (25/1), Kings Shield (33/1)

Verdict
There may have been too much use made of U S NAVY FLAG in the Irish 2,000 Guineas last time but he's taken to reverse that form here on ground he's sure to appreciate. There was no fluke about Tip Two Win's effort when runner-up in the 2,000 Guineas at Newmarket last time and he's not one to underestimate but Without Parole could be the main danger with his unbeaten record to defend here.
  1. U S Navy Flag
  2. Tip Two Win
  3. Without Parole
