Forecast

Dubai Legacy (5/6), Glorious Lover (4/1), What's The Story (7/1), Gallipoli (8/1), Hajjam (11/1), Hyperfocus (25/1), Citron Major (25/1)

Verdict
A fascinating clash with two three-year-olds who both showed good form last year taking on their elders for the first time (both also make their AW/handicap debuts); the hood now comes off DUBAI LEGACY who could make real progress this year especially over 7f plus. Glorious Lover is the other Classic generation runner and he too looks as though he will hold his own in this sphere. Amongst the older brigade Gallipoli and Hyperfocus are closely matched from last year but the former is preferred of that duo and if he gets a strong pace the Hajjam will be a threat. What’s The Story may find it tough to concede weight all round but he does have a good record fresh.
  1. Dubai Legacy
  2. Glorious Lover
  3. Hajjam
