Betting

Forecast

Advertise (11/10), Legends Of War (2/1), Van Beethoven (11/2), Konchek (10/1), Dunkerron (20/1), Charming Kid (25/1), Sporting Chance (25/1), North Wind (33/1)

Verdict
Aidan O'Brien has a fine record at this meeting and Van Beethoven makes plenty of appeal after his Group 2 success last time but there's a suspicion ADVERTISE could be something a bit special after his narrow defeat to Calyx at Royal Ascot last time and given he gets 3lb from his main rival, he could be hard to beat. Legends Of War was impressive at Yarmouth last time and if he can take a step forward for that run, he should be thereabouts.
