Forecast

Young Rascal (1/1), Weekender (7/2), Morando (8/1), Communique (8/1), Desert Skyline (12/1), Raheen House (20/1), What About Carlo (25/1), Scarlet Dragon (33/1), Maifalki (33/1), Isabel De Urbina (33/1), Temple Church (40/1)

Verdict
YOUNG RASCAL didn't run to expectations at Epsom but left that Classic disappointment behind with a Group 3 win here. He's still open to more improvement than his rivals and as a very talented stayer in the making. With his age group having won two of the last three renewals his main danger may come from fellow three-year-old Communique who is such a tough and likeable type who has kicked on again since stepping up to this trip. Morando could have more to offer up in distance while Weekender may find this on the sharp side nowadays but is likely to be involved in his current form. What About Carlo can go well at a price.
  1. Young Rascal
  2. Communique
  3. Weekender
