Forecast

Red Epaulette (15/8), Siskin (2/1), Harpocrates (7/2), Never Before (6/1), St George's Head (16/1), Stinglikeabee (33/1), Made In Pimlico (50/1)

Verdict
Obviously the 5lb penalty incurred by RED EPAULETTE leaves him a little vulnerable but he looked well above average when winning here in March and it will take a good one to beat him. All three debutants make some appeal but Ballydoyle's representative Harpocrates is the most compelling both on pedigree and trainer form with two-year-olds this season. Never Before wasn't beaten far on debut and should go well here also.
  1. Red Epaulette
  2. Harpocrates
  3. Never Before
