Forecast

Mount Everest (11/8), Sovereign (3/1), Japan (11/2), Power Of Now (7/1), Pythion (8/1), Guaranteed (14/1), Mackqeez (50/1)

Verdict
Aidan O'Brien saddle three as he seeks a ninth winner of a contest that he has landed with Capri and Saxon Warrior in the last two years. Ryan Moore opts for MOUNT EVEREST who landed the same Curragh maiden the 2000 Guineas winner took en-route this and that hint seems worth taking. Port Douglas was the apparent third string when taking this in 2015 so Japan cannot be dismissed out of hand, but the other Galileo colt, Sovereign,produced a breathtaking performance at Galway and looks a big threat. Power Of Now beat a strong rival last time and would be a lot shorter if trained at Balydoyle.
  1. Mount Everest
  2. Sovereign
  3. Power Of Now
