Betting

Forecast

White Desert (3/1), Hawkerland (10/3), Alqamar (7/2), Star Of The East (6/1), Golden Birthday (8/1), Machine Learner (12/1), C'Est No Mour (12/1), Sam Missile (25/1)

Verdict
Alqamar heads the weights for a reason having acquitted himself fairly well in Class 2 Newmarket handicaps, but there remains that nagging doubt as to whether or not he'll really go through with his effort if the winning opportunity presents. Hawkerland stays very well and although yet to win outside of Class 5 company isn't fully exposed and could run into a place at decent odds, but a tentative votes goes to the stablemate of Alqamar. The lightly raced WHITE DESERT blew away lesser opposition over this trip on the AW in May, before seemingly not staying the marathon 2m4f trip in the Ascot Stakes latest.
  1. White Desert
  2. Alqamar
  3. Hawkerland
