Forecast

Empire State (4/5), Excelcius (7/2), Globe Theatre (6/1), Vivacious Spirit (12/1), Numerian (12/1), Repetitio (16/1), Ultra Pride (20/1), Quare Lucky (25/1), Dedillon (33/1), Tails I Win (50/1), Annabelle Rock (66/1), Valseta (66/1), Leahman (100/1), Silver Pass (100/1)

Verdict
EMPIRE STATE sets a solid standard on his form since returning from a mid-season break and jockey bookings suggest he's the first string from Aidan O'Brien's pair. It's probably worth forgiving Excelcius' effort last time after a below par effort last time but Jim Bolger's Repetitio could be the main danger if he steps forward from his latest course effort.
  1. Empire State
  2. Repetitio
  3. Excelcius
