Betting

Forecast

Just Wonderful (13/8), Viadera (9/4), Marie's Diamond (7/2), Gee Rex (7/1), Fantasy (14/1), Cruciatus (22/1)

Verdict
MARIE'S DIAMOND sets a solid standard on form after his second to Van Beethoven last time out over this course and distance and he could prove a tough nut to crack with plenty of experience on his side. Gee Rex ran a fine race at Royal Ascot and rates as the main danger. Ryan Moore picks Just Wonderful over Fantasy and there's a fair chance she will put up a better shown than she managed at the Royal meeting.
  1. Marie's Diamond
  2. Gee Rex
  3. Just Wonderful
