Betting

Forecast

Beat The Bank (11/4), Lord Glitters (10/3), Century Dream (4/1), Trais Fluors (4/1), Eminent (8/1), Arod (14/1), Circus Couture (16/1), Suedois (20/1), Zhui Feng (25/1)

Verdict
Eminent would be the one to beat on his 2017 form, but he has been well held on both starts this term and cannot be recommended until showing more. The Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot saw LORD GLITTERS finish second, with Century Dream, Beat The Bank and Suedois behind. There is no guarantee that the form will be upheld, but the selection is still improving and may be able to win at this level for the first time. French challenger Trais Fluors is afforded plenty of respect given the record of his trainer in England.
  1. Lord Glitters
  2. Century Dream
  3. Trais Fluors
