Betting

Forecast

Zwayyan (2/1), Fire Brigade (7/2), War Glory (5/1), Pactolus (6/1), Glory Awaits (11/1), Manson (12/1), Malaspina (20/1), Greatest Journey (25/1), Azzeccagarbugli (25/1), First Flight (25/1), Knife Edge (33/1), Sans Souci Bay (50/1)

Verdict
Plenty of prize money up for grabs and the racecourse has been rewarded with a most-intriguing contest. Top-weights Azzeccagarbugli and Knife Edge have questions to answer, but their career records entitle them to the utmost respect. Fire Brigade may be able to turn round Ascot form with Zwayyan and War Glory is in good heart for his return to AW action, but the one to be on may be PACTOLUS. He comes into this contest in good form, is fully effective over C&D and seems sure to be on the premises. Greatest Journey and Glory Awaits are others to consider.
