Forecast

Alrajaa (10/11), Forest Of Dean (9/2), Sovereign Grant (5/1), Jaleel (5/1), Rajinsky (7/1), Walkinthesand (14/1), Dubai Instinct (14/1), Eden Gardens (25/1), Guildhall (33/1), Daniel Dravot (66/1), Sea Battle (66/1)

Verdict
Champagne Stakes entry ALRAJAA shaped well here on debut, and is open to plenty of improvement, so gets the verdict in the absence of market clues. Sovereign Grant and Dubai Instinct come from yards which have had recent success with racecourse debutants, so are worth noting in the market given their likeable pedigrees. Jaleel went with promise at Newbury, and also had the excuse of losing a shoe in that contest, so shouldn't be underestimated.
  1. Alrajaa
  2. Sovereign Grant
  3. Jaleel
