Bangkok (4/6), Prince Eiji (4/1), Gambon (10/1), Murray River (14/1), Ballylemon (16/1), Fox Vardy (16/1), Felix The Poet (18/1), El Picador (20/1), Red Armada (25/1), God Has Given (50/1), L'Un Deux Trois (66/1)

Verdict

In a race featuring several newcomers from top yards, most with impressive pedigrees it will take an extremely smart debutant to beat Andrew Balding's BANGKOK who was narrowly touched off by a colt with classic potential first time out. With that experience likely to aid him he has many plusses here. Of the newcomers Prince Eiji makes the most appeal and you would struggle to find a colt with a better pedigree than this one. It will be very disappointing if he isn't group class given his purchase price. Murray River is another newcomer to consider for the all-conquering John Gosden team.
  1. Bangkok
  2. Prince Eiji
  3. Murray River
