Verdict
Despite his occasional antics in the preliminaries, it's hard to find one to oppose BATTAASH with. The gelding was in fine form towards the back end of last year, romping home in the Prix de l'Abbaye and he's been getting better with each start this campaign, blowing his rivals away at Goodwood last time out. Michael Dods won this contest twice with Mecca's Angel and he saddles the unexposed Mabs Cross who is the preferred each-way option at a likely double figure price. Blue Point is a high-class colt who got the better of the selection at Royal Ascot but that stiff 5f played to his strengths that day and he may struggle to confirm the form here.
  1. Battaash
  2. Mabs Cross
  3. Blue Point
