Forecast

Delano Roosevelt (5/2), Raa Atoll (7/2), Old Persian (9/2), Rostropovich (7/1), Giuseppe Garibaldi (15/2), Wells Farhh Go (10/1), Elector (14/1), Highbrow (25/1), Alternative Fact (50/1)

Verdict

ROSTROPOVICH isn't the easiest horse to assess but it's entirely possible he's been crying out for the better ground he's going to get here and his two runs in France this year can be excused if that is the case. Stablemate Delano Roosevelt wasn't disgraced in the Derby and if he can get away on terms after two slow starts, Ryan Moore's mount shouldn't be dismissed. Old Persian is still improving and there's every chance he can produce a career best effort now his stamina is being brought in to play by this trip.
  1. Rostropovich
  2. Delano Roosevelt
  3. Old Persian
