Mount Tabora (9/4), Giga White (5/2), Guaranteed (4/1), Whitsunday Islands (10/1), Limit Long (10/1), Western Australia (14/1), Archaeology (22/1), Third World (25/1), Esprit de Lumiere (25/1), Softly Strong (33/1), Candy Man (50/1), Kodi Dream (66/1), Finding Nero (66/1)

Verdict

Aidan O'Brien has enjoyed a stranglehold on this race in recent times, winning four of the last five renewals and Ryan Moore opts to ride MOUNT TABORA after a respectable effort at Newmarket last time out. It's likely to have been a tough call between the son of Scat Daddy and the well bred Whitsunday Islands and there's every chance the stablemate will take a big step forward from his debut here. Esprit de Lumiere is a brother to a 1,000 Guineas winner and this looks like a sensible starting point for Joseph O'Brien's representative in the contest.
  1. Mount Tabora
  2. Whitsunday Islands
  3. Esprit de Lumiere
