Forecast

The King (6/4), Twilight Payment (11/4), Sir Erec (9/2), On The Go Again (8/1), Fightfortheroses (10/1), Jaega (16/1), The Tartan Spartan (33/1)

Verdict
The top rated Godolphin-owned TWILIGHT PAYMENT can land the spoils here following some fine performances over the season including fourth of six beaten 4¾L behind Flag Of Honour in the 257K Irish St Leger. Sir Erec looks an exciting improving sort and can battle with the solid and consistent Jessica Harrington-trained The King for the minor honours.
  1. Twilight Payment
  2. Sir Erec
  3. The King
