Verdict

Doubts can be cast about all of these and it's certainly a race to approach with caution. However, a chance is taken that a more patient ride will unlock more potential from HIBERNICUS, who is probably better than he showed last time out at Glorious Goodwood. The colt will have to work hard to reverse the form with Occupy, who is rated as a big threat, while Spiral Galaxy and Silver Character are others with claims on the pick of their form. Mr Reckless is upped in trip but is another to keep a close eye on in the betting market.
  1. Hibernicus
  2. Occupy
  3. Spiral Galaxy
