Forecast

Magna Grecia (2/1), Turgenev (7/2), Phoenix Of Spain (11/2), Raakib Alhawa (6/1), Great Scot (14/1), Circus Maximus (16/1), Kick On (16/1), Dashing Willoughby (16/1), King Ottokar (20/1), Kuwait Currency (33/1), Western Australia (50/1)

Verdict
It might be worth taking a chance on PHOENIX OF SPAIN after a fine run behind ante post 2,000 Guineas favourite Too Darn Hot last time out and he's given the impression on his last couple of starts that a step up in trip will suit. Aidan O'Brien won this with Saxon Warrior last year and Magna Grecia is the pick of this year's Ballydoyle trio. Turgenev has to be respected up in class for a yard looking to crown a remarkable season.
  1. Phoenix Of Spain
  2. Magna Grecia
  3. Turgenev
