Betting

Forecast

Sezim (11/4), Copal (7/2), Mary Somerville (5/1), Amjaady (6/1), Holy Kingdom (13/2), Battle Of Wills (7/1), Arctic Fox (16/1), Minnelli (33/1)

Verdict
A race which lacks a real standout contender, with plenty of those declared having shown a broadly similar level of ability. This longer trip could see the 800,000gns yearling Mary Summerville in a better light, but at this stage she's appearing plenty costly enough. Furthermore, Roger Varian's Sezim could make the frame but a couple of others are taken against the field, namely the handicap debutantes Amjaady and COPAL. The selection progressed with racing during the autumn, often appearing as if a further step up in trip was required (half-brother to the 1m1f-1m3f winner Monarch's Glen).
  1. Copal
  2. Amjaady
  3. Sezim
